Belgian Tripel All Grain Beer Recipe Kit
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.
Due to the high starting gravity of this kit, we recommend pitching multiple packs of yeast or preparing a yeast starter for best results.

Everything in the kit was perfect. I did the double yeast and made a starter while I was mashing out. I pitched the yeast and about 4 hours later I had activity. See you in about 6 to 8 weeks and I will let you know how it taste.
This is perhaps my number one pick when brewing a Belgian of the six that I normally brew. This is the reason why I got into brewing.
Kit arrived with the usual punctual and perfect NB service. Brewed it up and super high gravity - OG 1089. It blew the airlock cork out of the carboy even with a blow off tube! Wow - this thing really ferments. Using Omega Yeast Belgian Ale W OYL028 (2 pack). Smells great - can't wait. Expect it to finish around 10% abv. Tripel indeed!
OG was way off. I was probably more meticulous on this brew then I have ever been on anything else I have brewed. I really wanted it to be good. The OG came out at 1.054 was supposed to be 1.072 I believe. It went into the secondary yesterday and the flavor is ok but not what I was hoping for in a Belgian Triple.
My first brew day with my dad celebrating his 70th birthday! We had a great time and I was able to get a second beer out of the grains!
