Westmalle Tripel Clone

This is recipe is making it’s debut on my new brew sculpture, Sir Ballington. It’s a 15 gal batch with a total grist weight of 44.35 pounds! That’s nearly an entire sack of malt! This is my second brew on Sir Ballington. The first recipe I used was a single malt and whatever hops I had in the freezer that still looked passable. I’ll be splitting this beer with my buddy Josh so I’ll have 10 gal and he’ll take 5. He will be providing the yeast which he cultured from three beers: Duvel, Pirat IPA, and Delirium Tremens. I got the recipe from the book “Clone Brews.” I’ve brewed several recipes from that source and all have served me well.
