This weekend I will be playing around with some stuff again. I am set for a Belgian style trippel. The fun part of this beer right now, I don’t have a recipe even written yet. I have the idea of what I want it to be floating around in my head but nothing yet set in stone.
I picked up the Trappist yeast and hops I intend to use and I will be making caramel at some point in the next few days … what’s this you ask? Making caramel? Yep, I will be caramelizing some sugar instead of using the candi rocks you can pick up at most home brew shops. I am not sure how dark I will be making this caramel but I intend it to be the main color source for this beer.
I also intend to use mostly pilsner and Vienna malt for the main portion of this beer. I am not sure yet if I will use any other malts for color on this one. Probably in the next couple days when I finally set up the recipe I will post it here for others to peruse.
But for now, its time for a pint…
