Beer Style: Belgian Tripel (18C)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 US gallons

Belgian Tripel

Description:

The most important aspect of brewing this sort of beer is the yeast. Normal ale yeasts need not apply. You have to find a Belgian that works well in your brewery, that is produces the right esters without turning your beer into bananabrau. I highly recommend avoiding the Wyeast 1214 for this reason. The Wyeast White beer yeast (#3944) is an excellent replacement, though it performs sluggishly for me at low temps (below 65 F). YMMV, of course.

Ingredients:

  • 10 lbs Dewolf and Cosyn pilsner malt
  • 1 lb. Briess 2-row malt
  • 1.5 lbs. Corn sugar
  • 2 lbs Laglaander Extra pale dry malt extract
  • 1.5 oz. Tettenager (4.4%) 60 min.
  • 0.5 oz. Tettenager (4.4%) 5 min.
  • Wyeast White beer yeast
