Belgian Tripel Small Batch Recipe Extract Kit


SKU# 1G29

Flat Rate Shipping only $7.99 only from Northern Brewer
A strong but pale Trappist-style ale, lighter in color than Dubbel but with a higher gravity and alcohol content. The addition of clear candi sugar dilutes the malt bill, which helps preserve the golden color and makes the body deceptively light for a beer of this strength. Spicy and fruity with a gentle sweetness and hints of alcohol throughout leading to a dry and mildly bitter finish.

Product Details
The next step up from Dubbel in the monastic beer classification, Tripel is higher in alcohol than Dubbel but is actually lighter in color and body. The addition of clear candi sugar dilutes the malt bill, which helps preserve the golden color and makes the body deceptively light for a beer of this strength. Spicy and fruity with a gentle sweetness and hints of alcohol throughout leading to a dry and mildly bitter finish.

Great taste but consistently flat …
The taste is excellent but the instructions need to be amended like this:

On brewing day:
Pitch half of the yeast and put the rest in a ziplock bag or other resealable container and put it in the refrigerator

On bottling day:
Mix a solution of 1 cup of warm 38ºC (100ºF) water and 35 grams (1.25oz) of priming sugar in your bottling bucket.
Rack the beer into the bucket and stir gently to minimize introduction of oxygen.
Continue with bottling.

Can't quite get it to carb up
Maybe its user error, but I couldn't quite get this to carb up very well and or hold a head. I'll try it again though and try kegging instead.

I recently brewed this kit
I recently brewed this kit and didn't run into any issues. The directions were straight forward and easy to follow. The beer is in secondary now, and I can't wait to try the finished product!

What is the steeping grain that is included with this? I want to use the same for the larger batch, but noticed it doesn't come with the grain.
A shopper on Feb 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This beer doesn't have steeping grains just liquid malt and sugars.
If following the 3 month time frame instead of the 4 weeks from the PDF, should we put this through a secondary fermentation before bottling? If so whats the timing for each step?
M H on Sep 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you are going to use a 3 month time frame, you should transfer to secondary before the first month is up, so you don't get any off-flavors from autolysis. Once it's in secondary, you've got a lot of flexibility timing-wise.
The Additional Information lists a 3 month "total time to make", while the instructions .pdf suggests only the 2 week fermentation and 2 week bottle conditioning. Just wanted to know what the three month time requires; I'm guessing that's based off a secondary fermentation?
M T on May 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This can be brewed and bottled in the 4 week time frame, but will reach it's peak flavor after 2 months in the bottle.
I want to buy this kit for my husband. It would be his first time home brewing. Does this kit come with everything we need? Or do I have to buy anything separately?
A shopper on Jan 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This has the ingredients. It does not have the equipment he would need. They do have a small batch starter kit with everything you need.
I brewed this and used a blow out for first 48 hrs and had a lot come out. Then put a 3 piece air lock on. Since then no bubbles. Also no head and everything seemed to drop to bottom by day 4. It's now on day 6. Should I be worried?
brian d on Apr 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I had a good bit of blow with mine too. If you used too much of the yeast that definitely happens. I wouldn't worry but you can always check the specific gravity and see. It may be done already and be a little off due to fermenting too fast but still drinkable for sure
Should I bottle this after two weeks and have it in the bottle for 2 months or move it to a secondary fermentation before bottling? How long should secondary last? Is there a difference between a secondary and just leaving it in the bottle? Still a newbie so any guidance would be great!
A shopper on May 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: What I have done in the past with this excellent triple is leave in the primary for 3 weeks then move to a secondary for another 3 weeks. Then bottle and set it sit in a cool spot somewhere between 55 to 65 degrees for at least two months. It's clears up the taste well. I have also got alittle crazy and added some bourbon to a few bottles and gives it a awesome taste too a bourbon barrel triple. Awesome enjoy
For this recipe it calls for 1.5 of 2 included pounds of malt. I may have only done 1 pound. The beer is currently in secondary and is much darker than the pictures found here. Should I be concerned? Is this batch worth saving? I suspect I will try it and see but am interested in thoughts from the pros.
A shopper on Oct 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It will be lighter in a class with less of the beer in it. It looks much darker for possibly a few reasons, it isn’t done fermenting and having all the debris and what not fall out of suspension, and also the big one is that when there is more liquid, like the whole gallon in the fermenter, it’s harder for light to go through it, making it look darker than it does in a glass where the light can more easily go through the liquid making it seem lighter in color. Long story short, yes give that beer a chance, it’s probably going to be amazing still. Cheers!
Would this beer be a good fall seasonal beer?
