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!
Tastes just right. Do yourself a favor and make this beer.
It is currently in the secondary fermenter and I'm looking forward to hopefully having it completed by Superbowl Sunday. I used dark Belgium candy sugar in this batch with an extra pound of DME. I'm currently deployed in South Asia so if you want beer you have to make it yourself.
