For 5 gallon:

Dubbel Trubbel

(5 gallons, all-grain)

This abbey ale should keep the cloister happy. If you are scared of wild Belgian yeast, try a mixed yeast fermentation using a Belgian strain and a more neutral ale selection. This should put the wild-type yeast character into a more subordinate role.

Ingredients:

• 9.25 lbs. Belgian pilsner malt

• 1 lb. Belgian biscuit malt

• 4 oz. crystal malt, 40° Lovibond

• 4 oz. Special B malt

• 1 lb. dark candi sugar

• 2 oz. Tettnanger hops (4.5% alpha acid), 1.5 oz. for 60 min., 0.5 oz. for 5 min.

• Alcohol-tolerant ale yeast such as Wyeast 1214 (Belgian Abbey)

• 3/4 cup corn sugar for priming

Step by Step:

Mash grains into 3.5 gal. of water to reach a conversion temperature of 68.3C for 90 min. Sparge with water at 75C until a volume of 6 gal. is collected.

Bring to a boil and add candi sugar. Boil 30 min. and add the first hop. Boil 55 min. more and add remainder of the hops. Boil 5 min. more for a total of 90 min. Cool and aerate. Pitch yeast at 75° F.

Ferment at 65° to 80° F. After fermentation rack to secondary. Prime with corn sugar and bottle. Age for at least one month before consuming.
