On a beach of pale beers, this buff Belgian goes for the gold. Our Golden Strong Ale brings the muscle with a 6.2% ABV, but remains refreshing and drinkable. Perfect for fans of Duvel®, this strong ale flexes fruity, spicy notes from the specialty Belgian yeast, while crisp malt and clean hop flavors round out this well-built beer.
WHAT'S IN THE BOX?
This 5-gallon recipe kit includes all the ingredients to brew this buff Belgian:
- 7.5 lb Dry Malt Extract
- Saaz (Bittering, Flavoring) Hop Packet
- Steeping Grains
- Yeast Packet
- Grain Steeping Bag
This is I think the 3rd time I've brewed this, but it has been about 3 yrs or so. Fermented for a total of 3 wks. Added a lil extra yeast to the bottling bucket help with the bottle conditioning. After 3 weeks still not exactly where I want the carbonation, but it's getting there. Will cellar for the next 2 months and see where we're at taste wise, right now a lil sweet, next time I may add all the hops at the bittering stage, but we'll see how it tastes in a few months. Off to check on my Belgian Dubbel. Cheers
I enjoyed it and the brewing instructions were clear and the brew came out tasting similar to other strong ales. I will be getting another kit after this one is gone.
My third batch. Really like this beer.
I decided to try this beer out of curiosity just to see how good it is. It is not for me despite higher alcohol content and the taste is not what I would consider "great". It's just ok to me but not at the point where I would throw out the entire batch of beer. My go-to is the OG Orange and thought this would be similar to a summer beer like Leininkeugel, but it is not the same.
Turned out great. Very tasty.
