- Product Details
Dating back to monastic breweries in the middle ages, Dubbels are still produced at abbeys and monasteries in Belgium. This kit yields an authentic Trappist-style ale with a russet color, dense off-white head, and a host of flavors and aromas - spices, flowers, dried fruit, plums, raisins, rum, and toffee - arising from the interaction of grains, sugar, and yeast. A medium-full bodied, complex beer that pairs with everything from cheese to stew to dessert.
Recommended: 2-stage fermentation and yeast starter.

4.7 / 5.015 ReviewsGreat tasting! I'm addicted to it.Brewing this beer was easier then I thought and the only problem I had was with my yeast starter. Otherwise it turned out great and carbonated well in the bottles. I'm impressed with this recipe.June 13, 2012Yummy, yum, yum goodness. Nectar of enlightenment$!&@!!I have a confession to make, this beer is not technically done yet but it's sitting in the keg awaiting finishing touches. I plan on bottling half for storage (we'll see how well that works) and kegging half for immediate consumption. After tasting it today I am now ready to get the job done. I was worried at first because the beer took forever to clarify and the complex flavors weren't showing up. Let this one age for a good 10 weeks after fermentation and you will be rewarded. Honestly, this is a true traditional style Belgian Dubbel with all those great raisin, toffee, malt flavors that make a Dubbel what it is. Once again, yum, slurp, yum.February 20, 2011Ages well.I highly recommend aging this beer. I have make this one, in the past, and kegged it. My kegged beer tends to get consumed rather quickly. This time I bottled the batch and set it aside. After about 6 months the flavors have really come together. I am looking forward to letting it age, even more. Well worth the wait.October 26, 2013Fantastic flavorI love this beer. I mashed at 150F instead of 152F, got slightly higher gravity, slight dryer beer, and higher alcohol than expected. The whole house smelled of bananas while it was undergoing the most vigorous fermentation I've ever witnessed. I fermented hot at nearly 80F. The finished beer has a fruity Belgian ale flavor, unlike anything else I've tasted. The liquid yeast option flocculated very well and the beer is a clear amber. Highly recommended.March 17, 2012Wait a yearMade this a while ago at first I wasn't pleased but after aging it a wee bit it was perfect, just finished the last bottle after a year and a half, the beer gods smiled it was beautiful.February 20, 2012A favoriteThis brew was outstanding after 2 months when I first tapped the keg, but was not particularly reminiscent of the style. By the time the keg died 7 weeks later, it was still excellent, and starting to taste more like a classic Dubbel. Ordering again, and planning to be more patient.October 23, 2011Very good.This was my first all-grain brew. I did this before I had the beersmith software, and followed the NB instructions. I ended up getting better efficiency than what this recipe is set up for, so I ended up with a beer that was a good amount stronger than what was intended. It was a fantastic beer though. It's an excellent first step on your way to gauging your equipment. Oh yeah, the resulting beer was awesome. Let this one age a bit before getting into it, it's worth the wait.September 14, 2013my first attempt at all grain brewingI decided to use this kit for my first attempt at all grain brewing after being an extract brewer for about a year. The kit came with everything I needed and the instructions were pretty straight forward. My efficiency was a little lower than I would have liked and I forgot to factor in boil loss so I lost about a half gallon from my target of a 5 gallon batch. But the beer looks great and tastes great. I just bottled it and can't wait to try it in a few weeks.April 26, 2016So far so good....I brewed this beer 5 weeks ago. I bottled 4 bombers and keg'd the rest. I put the kegs in the kegerator this morning and took a sample a few minutes ago. I'm really getting banana on the pallet. was looking for more raisin, but this is a good beer. I'm sure that time would make this a better beer, but I'm a very impatient person, so time is not an option. It's a very aromatic beer. Sweet on the pallet. Very good... VERY good. Buy this kit if you like Belgian beers.April 9, 2016You Need To Try ThisI'm starting my second year of extract & AG brewing doing one or two batches a month. Most have been Northern Brewers kits. To me this one stands out as my favorite beer. Give it some time (2-4 months minimum) and you get a rich, clean, and smooth beer with a great caramel color. I used the Wyeast 1214 and used a yeast starter. If you like Belgian beers or not you will love this beer.October 22, 2015
