Yeast is actually Wyeast Canadian/Belgian 3864 (AKA Unibroue's yeast). Carapils was not added (forgot!)... so this recipe is out of date. Will have to update. After 2 weeks in primary I added an ounce of French medium roast oak chips. Will bottle in another week and a half, depending on how the oaking goes.
