Right between La Chouffe and De Koninck.

Good neighborhood! :beer:

Haven't updated this section in a while.

Here's my Oostmalle vs the original Westmalle Tripel.

Came in fairly close - both visually and taste-wise.

Thanks DS!

Used Westmalle yeast - single smackpack of Wyeast 3787 with a 2L starter on a stirplate.

Oxygenated the bejesus out of the starter + wort.

Usually my 30L fermentor is perfectly adequate for 20L of wort with just an airlock - the krausen has plenty of space.

However, this fermentation went totally nuts (even at a temp-controlled 20C) - had krausen coming out of the airlock.

I can't remember seeing such a violent fermentation since I started brewing... :shock: :?

That's very typical for the Westmalle yeast. Very vigorous fermentation.

I also have a Westmalle Triple clone planned in the near future. First I'll try me a Black IPA.

Thanks Niels - I have to say I wasn't prepared for having my fermentor turn into Mount Vesuvius :wink:

For your upcoming black IPA - what would you consider to be your commercial inspiration?

If you can find Wookey Jack Black IPA (by Firestone Walker) - give it a shot:

That beer is amazing :beerbang:

:( Bugga
I will be using 3787 soon for an Achel Blonde clone (recipe suggestions welcome :D )
Just kegged a dunkelweizen fermented with 3068 - That yeast is ridiculous. Did 2 weizens previously with 3068 and the krausen climbed out the fermentor, but with the dunkel it went nuts. BIG mess to clean up when it was done.

Hi Dan,

For great guidance on Belgian beers - check out "Brew like a monk" book:

http://www.amazon.com/Brew-Like-Monk-Tr ... ike+a+monk" target="_blank

The author offers interesting history background & brewing guidance on all major Belgian beers, inclusive of Achel.

The article below is literally a cut-out from the book:

Cheers :cheers:

Belgian Golden Strong, my Duvel clone 8.5%, 5 months in the keg, 1 month in bottles, it's a lovely drink but I'm trying not to drink it to let it mature some more....

To brew or not to brew, that would be a stupid question !

Here is an IPA that I recently brewed.
It is from a recipe of Dans' and I am pleased with how it came out for my first attempt as an American IPA

The worst thing that can happen if I die is that my wife will sell all my brewing equipment for what I told her I paid for it

Hi Dicko - nice-looking brew :beerbang:

I also dig your glassware - is it Australian-made?
