Beer Style: Belgian Dubbel  (18B)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 3 US gallons

Belgian Dubbel
Beer Color


The beer smelled unpleasant when I opened the fermentation vessel. But two weeks after bottling, the taste is pretty good. The hops have a stronger presence than I would like. Overall, not bad. Try reducing the first batch of hops and eliminate the last.
