Gouden's Carolus clone
« on: May 29, 2013, 02:29:45 PM »
For my next brew, I'm going to try to clone Gouden's Carolus Cuvée Van de Keizer Rood.

Anyone try this?  I'm especially curious about recommended yeast.  This is the recipe I have thus far:

10 lbs. Belgian pils
1 lb. cara 20
.5 lb. Special B
1 lb D45 candi syrup
1 lb flaked corn

.75 oz. Cascade @ 60 min.
.5 oz. Northern Brewer @ 30 min.
.5 oz. Styrian Goldings @ 15 min

14g dried Curacao bitter orange peel - 10 minutes in boil.
1 gram crushed star anise - 10 minutes in boil.

For a 5.5 gallon batch

Thoughts?

Steve

I haven't been able to find out much about their yeast (Het Anker Brewery). Maybe its proprietary. I think their yeast profile is similar to Achouffe's (WLP 550).
