A medium-bodied, effervescent ale practically exploding with yeast and wheat malt character, kind of like a liquid multigrain bread. A strong but pale Trappist-style ale, lighter in color than Dubbel but with a higher gravity and alcohol content.
A monastic ale that wears the agrarian roots of the brewing arts on its sleeve: three grains from northern European fields, an ancient yeast, a gift of flowers from the hop vine. Oats and wheat support a body built up by malted barley and undercut by sugar for digestibility. The alchemy of yeast, hops, temperature, and time yields beguiling aromas and flavors of tropical fruit, earth, herbs, malt, alcohol, and wild honey. Burnished gold with a tight white glass-coating lacework. Before you uncork your first bottle of this ponderous 8% abv sipper, we like to remind you that beer is food treat your Triple-Grain Tripel accordingly and have it for dinner with some artisanal blue cheese or butter-basted roast chicken.
This is a partial mash beer kit - see our Partial Mash Walkthrough for details.
In addition to the equipment required for malt extract brewing (boiling kettle, primary fermenter, siphon, etc.), you will need the following to brew our partial mash kits:
- A thermometer with a range that includes 120°-170°F
- A mash kettle - a pot with a capacity of at least 4 gallons (the boiling kettle you already have can do double duty)
- A second pot or kettle with a capacity of at least 2 gallons for heating sparge water
- A large strainer or a nylon mesh bag that can hold up to 5 pounds of wet grain (used to separate the grain from the mash liquid in Step #8)
