Belgian Tripel – All Grain


General Info

Recipe by Kelly Kruegel. Will be blended with other brewers making the same beer into a 70 gallon barrel that previously housed a Cabernet. Will be interesting...

Added sugar as a syrup four days into primary.

Entered the barrel in May 2011, exited in January 2012. 

Bottled half the batch in 750ml Belgian style bottles with natural carbonation. The other half of the batch will be split between 12 ounce bottles and a keg (January 17, 2012).
