Choosing the yeast wont be that hard, just kinda in the dark about how much of those hops and what times they should be boiled at. :confused:

Well, you asked so I gave you my best answer re: the yeast.

As for the hops, all three are generally used as aroma hops, so I dunno. I'm sure Saaz doesn't work well as a bitteirng hop, but I have used Hallertauer for bittering in a hefe before. I don't know squat about Spalt.

The only recipe I have that looks similar if for a 7.7% ABV Belgian "strong golden ale". It uses .75oz Brewer's gold for bittering, .5oz Hallertau Hersbrucker at 15 min, and .25oz Styrian Goldings for aroma at 2 min.

So, looks like we might have the flavor hop nailed down. Sub the Saaz for aroma, and the Spalt for bittering, and I'll bet it gets you there.

I stopped at the big liquor store on the island that stocks imported exotic beers earlier tonight. One of the 6 I bought was a Biere Du Boucanier Golden Ale. I cracked it an hour ago. Wow, I defintely want to make this one. I think 12 oz bottles would probably be wiser with an 11% alcohol level.

Any word on this batch Somerville? Did you attempt it?:confused:
