Here is one of my tried and true recipes I thought I would share with all of you. I think that this last batch was the best ever so I'll give you that variation.

5 gallons

Grain:

13# Ida Pils
3# orange blossom honey
1# Clear Belgian candi sugar (sugar
1# Honey malt
.5# carapils

single infusion mash at 150 degrees for 1 hour

hops:

2 oz hallertauer 60 min =26 ibu's
spices:

1.5oz. orange peel
1.25oz. corriander
.5oz. Ginger root
Irish moss

spices and moss added in the last 15 minutes of the boil

Add honey in while chilling at 180 degree mark (very important)

Yeast is wyeast 3787 with a starter. Have never used anything else on this beer so I cannot suggest any subs. I'm sure anyting belgianish would be fine.

Now you HAVE !!! to let this on set. Seems like 4-5 months at least. The longer it sets the smoother and more "stupid" it gets. Meaning it gets smoother and easier to drink, and will get you into trouble. On this last one I am down to the last couple of bottles. It is 8 months old and really hitting it's prime.

Starting gravity will be around 1.090 and finish about 1.014-1.018. if you have any problems getting it to drop put in some champaigne yeast and watch it closely.

You may find this one to be a little "hot" (alcohol) at transfers. very normal, RDWHAHB.

Have fun Alpha Male (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/withstupid.gif)
