Beer Style: Belgian Golden Strong Ale
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 US gallons
A while back I posted a recipe asking for opinions on the content. I received one reply :-( , advising me to put like 4 oz of chocolate malt in as I was trying to get a Brown out of the recipe. Well, I didn't listen, and ended up with more of an IPA than a Brown. But thats okay too. The taste is sweet and very hoppy. I reccomend this recipe, with the addition of 4 oz chocolate and the subtraction of 8 oz of the carastan.
