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.

Due to the high starting gravity of this kit, we recommend pitching multiple packs of yeast or preparing a yeast starter for best results.

This one I am not sure of. I can't say it's good, but I sure am not saying it's bad. The recipe suggested using two packs of yeast. I always use dry yeast and rehydrate it. For all the brews I have made this works well, to the point I always use a blow off tube going into a gallon bucket because of the activity. So I only used one, thinking the rehydrating would be sufficient. It didn't bubble and blurp like I was hoping for. Let it sit in the fermenting bucket two weeks, racked for four weeks. Bottled and let it sit for three weeks. Very low carbonated, to flat. Flavor isn't what I was hoping for. If I make this again I will most defiantly use two packs of yeast.

Pretty straight forward kit. It's bottled but untasted officially. The small taste I had from the test sample told me it's going to be an amazing after work beer but definitely not a session beer at 6.8%. This beer could become a regular.

First kit purchased from Northern brewer.

This was my first kit purchased from Northern Brewer and was my first time home brewing in 7 years. I just bottled this two days ago and am pleased with what I tasted from the leftover beer. I went with the Wyeast packs and just want to give a heads up that this package/strain might need a full day to swell up and activate. I also under pitched and had to go to a local brewshop and find a similar yeast strain. Despite my mistakes I'm happy with the final product and would purchase again
