Trippel Play

Source: Mark Stevens
Recipe added: 10/21/97

For the trippels, I aim for a big beer with fairly light color---hence, I avoid recipes that call for darkly colored malts. The hops are used only in the boil to produce a beer that's balanced, yet that allows the malt and sugar to dominate the flavor profile. While I've used the Wyeast Trappist ale yeast with good results, many excellent brewers prefer culturing yeast such as Chimay for recipes like this.
