Belgian Memorial Day

05 Jun

As mentioned in a previous post, today was a day for brewing Belgian beer. The day was warm and muggy, and the temperature of the water from the hose was only able to get the temperature down to a bit less than 90 degrees.

Strong Golden 1.076 OG, 1.004 FG – 9.6% ABV

Tripel 1.068 OG, 1.004 FG – 8.5% ABV

They were mostly done with the active fermentation in less than 2 weeks, with a gravity of 1.010. The extra several months refined it even further to the final 1.004 @ 78F.

  • Racked to keg Sunday, September 8, 2012
