Patersbier All Grain Beer Recipe Kit
Stan Hieronymus (author of Brew Like a Monk) and Kristen England (BJCP Continuing Education Director) bring you this very special kit. "Brouwerijd" on the left side of the Belgian town Malle solely for consumption by the reverent Cistercian brothers. This ale is not served or sold to the public, making it one of the rarest beers in the world. Made only from pilsner malt, hops, and yeast, the complexity that results from these simple ingredients is staggering: perfumey floral hops, ripe pear fruit, sour apple, spicy cloves, candied citrus and a slight biscuit character on the drying finish ... a monk session beer.
Note: If you wish to achieve a level of carbonation similar to the commercial examples of this beer, add an additional 1 to 2 oz plain table sugar to the priming solution.

Still at the fermentation phase . It might be good.
I am very much looking forward to this one to be all finished up. Took a sample for the refractometer 3 days into primary and gave it a taste and it already tastes great. Used the WY3787 and its been going at it like crazy since just a couple hours after pitching it.
We started brewing this beer on the recommendation of a local brewer after we told him what kind of yeast we had left over from a dubbel. It is very different but strikes a wonderful balance between the refreshing zing of a lager beer and the complex yeast profile of a Belgian ale.
The one area we did change was the use of Strisselspalt hops. I recommend using 4 ounces of those or bittering with Aramis and then adding the Strisselspalt a little later. It is nice because it brings a bit of the Alsatian character into it.
However for people who may want to try lagers but worry about not having the equipment, or for people who have friends who aren't really "beer people"; this is a fantastic beer. This beer hits the right balance of being something special but also accessible.
I've brewed this one several times now and when Northern has the all grain kits on sale I'll be stocking up. Going to be a regular on one of my taps now. Every enjoys it and goes fast. Very easy to brew and comes out perfect every time.
Beautiful beer! Simple yet incredibly tasty. I used the Imperial Monastic yeast which gave the brew a nice Belgian flavor. When I say beautiful beer, I'm also referring to its look. Great copper color. I highly recommend this.
