Belgian Dubbel

Dubbel Trouble

Homebrewers Association
Homebrewers Association

Dubbel's are characterized as medium-bodied, red to dark brown colored ale with a malty sweetness and chocolate-like caramel aroma. It tastes sweet up front, but finishes dry. This is because of the layering of the specialty grains (usually CaraMunich or Special B). The dry finish also is attained by mashing at a lower temperature than you typically would for a sweeter beer. It is also a great beer for brewers that are just starting to brew all grain. However you can create an extract that is comparable using Munich or Amber extract or even a little corn sugar to increase the original gravity. Recipe found in Zymurgy, May/June 2009 Issue (pg. 25)Read More
