Beer Style: Belgian Golden Strong Ale (18D)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 US gallons
I made an attempt at copying Orval earlier this summer. Since I am now connected to this mailing list, I thought I might go ask you experts out there what you think of my recipe.
Mash 30 minutes at 59 C, 60 minutes at 68 C.
Primary fermentation: 1 week with pure S.cerevisiae culture from Orval secondary fermentation: 3 weeks with dregs from an earlier attempt at a wheat based beer fermented by a mixed culture from a bottle of Orval. The FG indicates some Brettanomyces activity.
