Tripel with Barke Pils
« on: September 21, 2018, 08:01:22 PM »
I finally got some Weyermann Barke Pilsner malt to try out and picked up a couple of packets of 3864 while it's still in season.

This is what I'm planning on brewing Sunday:

12 lbs. Barke Pils
1.5 lbs. Torrified wheat
1.25 oz. Acid malt
2.25 lbs. Cane sugar

1 oz. Sterling @ 60 min
2 oz. SG @ 10 min
1 oz. EKG @ 2 min

OG should be around 1.080

WY 3864 (Canadian/Belgian)

Water is close to yellow balanced in BN

Calcium: 62
Sodium: 5
Sulfate: 76
Chloride: 62

It's been a long time since I've brewed with 3864, and I'm looking forward to it.

You must be psychic because I literally just brewed a tripel 2 days ago and pitched WY 3864.  Similar recipe, too.  I used Styrian Golding, and also added honey and 1 tsp fresh orange zest at flameout.  I can't wait to taste the results!  Smells fantastic already.  Yeast took off in less than 6 hours at 65 F and is one of the most vigorous fermentations I have witnessed in all my days.

The world will become a much more pleasant place to live when each and every one of us realizes that we are all idiots.
