Belgian Golden Strong Ale


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.


  • 2.97 kg lager malt
  • 0.46 kg crystal malt (should be Cara-Vienna, I know)
  • 0.63 kg light syrup
  • 1.56 g AA St. Golding (plugs)
  • 0.83 g AA Tettnanger (pellets)
  • S.cerevisiae culture from Orval
  • mixed culture from a bottle of Orval
  • 48 g St. Goldings plugs (dry hop)
  • 10 g table sugar per liter (priming)

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.
