In 1.5 gallons of water I brought 1 pound of Crystal 60 L to 130 degrees for 20 min. Then raised the temp to 150 for 55 minutes. Kind of like a full mash but its only 1 pound and I had it in a bag. Then brought it to a boil and added the 4 pounds light DME. Boiled for 10 minutes then added 1 oz tettnanger hops. Boiled for 35 minutes then added saaz hops for the final 3 minutes. Brought wort up to 2 gallons in the pot, then poured the wort into 3 gallons of cool water i had in the fermenter. Let it cool then pitch yeast as usual. Took 7 days to finish then bottle. Would not hurt to put it in secondary for 5 days to clear. Bottled the usual way with priming sugar. Enjoy. The taste is not heavy but it definitely has the taste simular to a belgian blond. I think due to the candy sugar and trappist style yeast.
