Belgian Tripel Extract 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.

I may have sampled it... may have liked it too.
I was a little nervous about this one, even with a starter. Turns out I had nothing to worry about as it turned out BEAUTIFUL. Just be sure to use a blow-off hose as this one really generates some action! This was my first beer with the new Northern Brewer kegging system as well, and I really couldn't be happier. Nothing like a perfectly carbonated beer on tap! Belgians are some of my favorite brews, and I was worried I wouldn't come close to replicating a true Tripel. I was completely wrong, and this stands right up there with some of the best of them. Now if I could only figure out a way to cut the secondary fermentation time down by a month or two ;) Worth the wait though!
Kit takes 2-3 months before I can drink it, give me some time!! It’s only been 6 weeks
Used Omega Yeast Belgian Ale W OYL-028. One of my favorites, but it needs at least 1.5 mo more than the recipe calls for. Sometimes I throw in an extra pound of Belgian Candi Sugar. Don't plan on going anywhere if you drink this 'cause it'll set you back down!
