I would personally not use any special B in a dubbel and up the amount of Dark candi syrup. I think you might be starting to see there is not really a right or wrong answer here, but personal preference.

I tried that for a few batches and it just didn't have the richness of flavor I was looking for.  Adding .25 lb. of Special B back in got me to where I wanted to be.

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

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.
