Having made several batches of my signature beer — Wally\’s Pale Ale — it is now time to branch out to other styles of beer. Since many of the tastiest beers are of the Belgian ale varieties and Trippels being the apex of such expression, that\’s what I chose as my next batch.
For my first time, I\’m cheating a little bit by using a kit from Williams Brewing. The contents can be seen above. A large bag of liquid malt extract, two medium sized bags of candy sugar, two small bags of hops (bittering and flavoring) and a bloated bag of yeast. Let\’s brew!
It should be drinkable in 6 weeks. But for the full effect, it might not be ready until late spring.
For the beer nerds out there, I would have noted the starting specific gravity, but I forgot to measure it. Shit, it\’s just beer. It\’ll be done when it\’s done and the fucker stops bubbling.
