Beer Recipes / Basic Dubbel and Tripel recipes
« on: May 12, 2012, 11:19:25 AM »
I included the Aromatic because I've heard some podcasts and seen a few recipes for tripels that call for it.

I usually include a small bit of aromatic in my triples because I like the little extra touch, but yeah it's not necessary.

And because you just like being contrary!  ;)

+1 - think of a tripel as the Belgian answer to a pilsner, but higher gravity and with Belgian yeast.

Actually, the story is that Westmalle invented the tripel in the 30s to compete with all the light, pils style beers that were becoming popular.

But a tripel shouldn't have that....at least if you want to stay true to the style.  So no, I really can't suggest anything.  My tripels are simply pils malt and table sugar and I love them that way.

I'd cut the aromatic from the tripel.

All Grain Brewing / Re: New to all grain. Need help with set up
« on: May 10, 2012, 02:46:36 PM »
I think I paid between $50-75 for my setup at a hardware store.  Included a burner/stand and a 7-7.5 gal. AL pot which I still use.

It made me want to listen to Jerry Garcia for some reason.

That's the LAST thing I'd want you to do!

Assuming the sugar ferments completely (and it probably will) and it's a 5 gal. batch, it will add about 1.1% ABV.

Focus on the process (cleaning, sanitation, fresh ingredients, water profiles, pH, mash temps, yeast starter, fermentation temps) and not the equipment.

This is what every new brewer needs to hear.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Brewing at Rogue today

Denny, How would you rate the processes of SN vs. Rogue?  Which brewery impressed you the most?

Keep in mind that I brewed at a small satellite Rogue brewery, although I've been to the main brewery many times.  Obviously SN is much larger.  I also think SN is more geeky/techy/tightly controlled (in terms of the brewing process) than Rogue.

All Grain Brewing / Re: how long is too long for FWH?
« on: May 10, 2012, 09:02:46 AM »
When you FWH do you remove the hops prier to boil?

Nope.  You leave them in all the way through.

The problem I have with a lot of those names is that the people who come up with them think they're a lot more clever than they actually are.  To me, most risque beer names come across as juvenile and dumb.
