Description

Liquid Gold! So smooth for a beer with an alcohol by weight of 7%! This recipe includes quality sugar, plus an immense amount of both dried and liquid Light Malt Extract, hops and uses the Trappist yeast strain. It leaves lots of classic phenolic flavor, but produces a very soft body without a high alcohol bite. Not that bitter, this golden beer is about a strong and complex malt body. It may take a goblet or two to grow on you, but once you acquire the taste.... some would say "beervana." The malt extract for this kit is made entirely from German Pilsner Malt, giving it that classic European flavor.

Estimated Original Gravity:1.074-78

Terrible
A friend of mine received this as a gift. He passed it on to me because he decided to stop homebrewing. I brew all grain, but decided I needed to brew this kit just to tell him I did. This kit contains LME and DME. The color of the LME is dark (20-25 SRM). There is no way given the laws of physics that you could add that LME and end up with a color that is anywhere near that of a tripel (around 5 SRM). That is the first problem. The rest: I used a yeast starter, pitched and got this down to 1.023. I've never had a stuck fermentation. So, I created another starter and pitched. Nothing. I did 2 more starters and pitched. Nothing. At this point, I knew this was a dud, but there was the specter of my friend in the background. He's going to want to try this terrible beer. And I told him, "Listen, maybe on the best of days we could call this a dubbel. But even then, to call this a dubbel, we'll need to get it down to 1.018 -- it's just too sweet as it is. But there's no way to do that." But, I'm a good friend, so I kegged it, carbed it and bottled it yesterday (for him). I tried it just to quench my curiosity: it tasted like a terrible soda. You can tell from the photo that it's not anywhere near the color of a tripel. And maybe someone at MB had a dozen too many the day they were packing kits and slipped in the paper that said it was a tripel kit when it really was a dubbel kit. (Though, that still doesn't explain why it wouldn't ferment down unless it was ancient). Anyway, if you're new to brewing and you want to brew yourself a tripel, forget this kit. You'll never get ANYWHERE near it because the LME is the wrong color to provide you anything near the standard tripel...

One of my favorites!
This was my first home brew & still is one of my favorite brews. I've made it several times over the years & both my wife & I treat it like gold rationing it as it gets near the end of our supply. I like to leave it in the secondary for a month or more to let the true ester flavors develop. I've also held back the second hops addition & used it to dry hop it which turned out amazingly.

Amazing for a "grainless" kit!
I brewed this kit in August '17 and had great results. I deviated slightly from the instructions by leaving the candi sugar out until fermentation appeared to have peaked (roughly day 3). By letting my yeast (a huge starter of Wyeast 1214 Belgian Abbey) work on the maltose for a few days before introducing the sucrose, I got this brew to ferment down nice and dry (my notes say 1.007 but I am still dialing in the correction factor of my refractometer) with just north of 9% ABV. I kept my fermentation temps right at 76 degrees F (the highest temp recommended by Wyeast for that strain). I love the esters thrown by that yeast. The final product is warming and taste very "european" like it should. Color ended up being a wonderful copper tone. This kit is a testament to the quality and variety of modern extracts! With 5 months or so in the bottle it is only getting better. I'm going to nurse this one and try to make it last a year or better and just savor its evolution. CHEERS.

Outstanding !
I have to say that after getting into brewing again after a 20+ year hiatus I'm amazed at how far homebrewing has come. When I racked this into the secondary after 14 days I had enough to put fill a 2L which I carbonated with a carbonator cap. 3 weeks after brewing and this is a really good Trippel. Fruity, sweet and finishes dry with a slight alcohol finish. I can't wait to see how it mellows with a little aging. I pitched at 70.F with WLP 530, the yeast was a few month old and I'd forgotten to make a starter. I repitched with a fresh starter of WLP 510 24 hours later. Ramped from 70.F to 75.F over 6 days. O.G. 1.076 F.G 1.011 ABV 8.8 %
I think after 2-3 months of finishing this will compete with the best commercial examples of the style. Doesn't hurt that it's about 1/2 of what I'd pay to buy this either.

Very good kit
For Belgian beer fans, this will trippel will make you smile. Let it rest for several months after bottling if you can wait. Not too sweet with hops just right. I will brew this again.
