Product details

A medium-bodied, effervescent ale practically exploding with yeast and wheat malt character, kind of like a liquid multigrain bread. A strong but pale Trappist-style ale, lighter in color than Dubbel but with a higher gravity and alcohol content.

A monastic ale that wears the agrarian roots of the brewing arts on its sleeve: three grains from northern European fields, an ancient yeast, a gift of flowers from the hop vine. Oats and wheat support a body built up by malted barley and undercut by sugar for digestibility. The alchemy of yeast, hops, temperature, and time yields beguiling aromas and flavors of tropical fruit, earth, herbs, malt, alcohol, and wild honey. Burnished gold with a tight white glass-coating lacework. Before you uncork your first bottle of this ponderous 8% abv sipper, we like to remind you that beer is food treat your Triple-Grain Tripel accordingly and have it for dinner with some artisanal blue cheese or butter-basted roast chicken.

This is a partial mash beer kit - see our Partial Mash Walkthrough for details.

In addition to the equipment required for malt extract brewing (boiling kettle, primary fermenter, siphon, etc.), you will need the following to brew our partial mash kits:

  • thermometer with a range that includes 120°-170°F
  • mash kettle - a pot with a capacity of at least 4 gallons (the boiling kettle you already have can do double duty)
  • A second pot or kettle with a capacity of at least 2 gallons for heating sparge water
  • large strainer or a nylon mesh bag that can hold up to 5 pounds of wet grain (used to separate the grain from the mash liquid in Step #8)

A Great Kit if You Like a Tripel

I have brewed the mini-mash version of this kit on two occasions. A Tripel is a great beer that is reasonably light in character with a hint of cookie notes. Easy to brew and tasty. I would encourage extract brewers to try the mini-mash version. Good flavors from the grains!

Great Belgian recipe

Don’t rush this one, keep to the recommended weeks of fermentation and go even longer bottle conditioning (best to add 2 months at cold (50F) temperatures). Well worth the patience.
I have brewed it 7 times now, using WY3522 and loving it even better with 1oz coriander (vs: 1/2 oz in the recipe). Note: watch out not to overheat the fermentation (in the starter and in the beer) to avoid alcoholic aftertaste. Also the stated design OG is a bit overstated IMO (by 2-3 points)

Carmelite Triple Grain

OMG! This is the best beer I ever brewed! You have to do the partial mass kit,and let it bottle age for 4 weeks, makes ALL the difference in flavor.

Strange Aftertaste

I keep logs on everything I brew. I rated this one a 3- out of 5 for its strange aftertaste. It is very alcoholic, which is an unusual note for me to make. This beer turned out very cloudy. Perhaps more time in the bottle is needed. I had added 4 weeks, but perhaps that is not enough. Willing to give this beer a second chance, I've added 1 month to the secondary and 1 mo the the conditioning for my 2nd batch, which should be ready 24 Jul 2021. I'm also switching from OYL-028 (normally very good for Belgian) to OYL-024.
