This recipe calculates out to 99.9 IBU's. It tasted great out of the primary and once it's bottled I'll have to resist my temptation to drink it up right away. I planning to bottle some in splits and savor for a couple of years. Watch the Trappist yeast and make a starter to get enough yeat cells to start. According to the recipe calculator the alcohol should be at 10% v/v. Hope you enjoy this one if you decide to brew it. Cheers!
