Well, I am in a Quandry...all six of my Kegs are full
and the cask is full of beer and cherries..no where to put any new brews...
So I have no landing spot for any beer until I get a keg kicked....

Guess I will just have to drink beer all weekend....NICE>.... ;D

Racking my DAPA  onto Columbus leafs in the secondary this weekend, Also racking the Scottish 80 leaving a nice big 1728 cake for the Traquair House clone I'm doing Sunday. Then, onto a Rochefort 8 clone.


Would that be a Herman Holtrop recipe?? And if not would you care to share your recipe??

I believe it is either Herman's or very close to Herman's. I actually got this from Bill Pierce.This is for 5 gallons . .

8.5 lbs. Pilsner
1.25 lbs. Caramunich II
0.5 lb. Special B
0.5 lb. Flaked Maize
1.5 oz. Carafa Special
1.5 lb. Belgian Dark Candi syrup (added just before flameout)
1.5 lb. White Table Sugar (added just before flameout)

1.25 oz. Styrian Goldings 60 min.
1 oz. Hershbrucker 30 min.
0.38 oz. Hershbrucker 5 min.

2 tsp. Freshly Ground Coriander seed 10 min.

Wyeast 1762, pitched at 68 F and allowed to rise to 73 F as vigorous fermentation begins to level off.

The reason for the additional sugar is an attempt to achieve the high attenuation of Rochefort.

The key is to make your own Belgian Dark Syrup from table sugar with a little creme of tarter which helps “invert” the glucose-fructose bond in the sucrose. It's easy AND a lot cheaper than buying syrup!  ;)
Just brew it...

Putting the railing on my deck.  Hope to break Sunday afternoon, bluesman is playing down the road from my house.  Me and my better half will go down there and quaff a few brews and get into the blues with Dr. Harmonica & Rockett 88. 8)

Pliny I hope.  Winds were kicking up around 40 mph last weekend so had to postpone.  Sunday looks like an awesome day so far.

Five gallons of cream ale.  Also, plenty of cooler, faucets and lines getting the full cleaning treatment.  Have to get all ready for patio season.
