    STEP 1: Sanitizing

    Cleaning is one of the most important steps in brewing. It kills microscopic bacteria, wild yeast, and molds that may cause off-flavors in your beer. Make certain to clean all equipment that comes in contact with your beer by following the directions below:

    1. Fill clean keg with warm water to line mark 1 on the back, then add ½ pack (about 1 tablespoon) of No-Rinse Cleanser and stir until dissolved. Once dissolved, the solution is ready to use. Save the remaining ½ of No-Rinse Cleanser because you will need it for bottling.

    2. Screw-on the lid and swirl the keg so that the cleaning solution makes contact with the entire interior of the keg, including the underside of the lid. Note that the ventilation notches under the lid may leak solution. Allow to sit for at least 2 minutes and swirl again.

    3. To clean the spigot, open it fully and allow the liquid to flow for 5 seconds and then close.

    4. Pour the rest of the solution from the keg into a large bowl. Place your spoon/whisk, can opener and measuring cup into the bowl to keep them cleaned throughout the brewing process. Leave them immersed for at least 2 minutes in cleaning solution prior to using.

    5. After all, surfaces have been thoroughly cleaned, do not rinse or dry the keg or utensils. Return lid to the top of the keg, proceed immediately to brewing.


    STEP 2: BREWING

    Brewing beer is the process of combining a starch source (in this case, a malt brewing extract) with yeast. Once combined, the yeast eats the sugars in the malt, producing alcohol and carbon dioxide (CO2). This process is called fermentation.

    1. Remove the yeast packet from under the lid of the can of Brewing Extract,(not needed for this recipe), then place the unopened can and BrewMax LME in hot tap water.

    2. Place all packets of pellet hops into the hop sack tying it closed, then trim away excess material. 

    3. Using the measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot. Bring this to a boil, add in your hop sack, then remove from heat.

    4. Open the can of Brewing Extract and BrewMax LME and pour the contents into the hot hop water in your pot. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort.

    5. Fill your fermenter with cold tap water to the mark 1 on the back. If using any other fermenter this would be approximately 1 gallon of water.

    6. Pour the wort into your fermenter, and then bring the volume of the fermenter to mark 2 by adding more cold water. (If you have a different fermenter top it off with cold water to the 8.5-liter mark).

    7. Stir your wort mixture vigorously with your sanitized spoon or whisk.

    8. Sprinkle the T-58 yeast packet into the keg, and screw on the lid. Do not stir.

    Put your fermenter in a location with a consistent temperature between 68° and 78° F (20°-25° C), and out of direct sunlight. Ferment for 21 days.


    STEP 3: Bottling & Carbonating

    After 21 days, taste a small sample to determine if the beer is fully fermented and ready to bottle. If it tastes like flat beer, it is ready. If it’s sweet, then it’s not ready. Let it ferment for 3 more days (24 total). At this point, it is time to bottle. Do not let it sit in the fermenter for longer than 24 days total.

    1. When your beer is ready to bottle, fill a 1-gallon container with warm water, then add the remaining ½ pack of the No-Rinse Cleanser and stir until dissolved. Once dissolved, it is ready to use.

    2. Distribute the cleaning solution equally among the bottles. Screw-on caps (or cover with a metal cap if using glass bottles) and shake bottles vigorously. Allow to sit 10 minutes, then shake the bottles again. Remove caps and empty all cleaning solution into a large bowl. Use this solution to clean any other equipment you may be used for bottling. Do not rinse.

    3. Add 2 Carbonation Drops to each 740-mL bottle. For 1-liter bottles, add 2 ½ drops; for ½-liter bottles add 1 drop. Alternatively, you can add table sugar using this table as a guide

    4. Holding the bottle at an angle, fill each bottle to about 2 inches from the bottle’s top.

    5. Place caps on bottles, hand tighten, and gently turn the bottle over to check the bottle’s seal. It is not necessary to shake them.

    6. Store the bottles upright and out of direct sunlight in a location with a consistent temperature between 70°-76°F or 21°-24°C. Allow sitting for a minimum of 14 days. If the temperature is cooler than suggested it may take an additional week to reach full carbonation. 


    Tip from our Brewmasters

    After the primary carbonation has taken place your beer is ready to drink. We recommend putting 1 bottle in the refrigerator at first for 48 hrs. After 48hrs. give it a try and if it is up to your liking put the rest of your beer in the fridge. If it does not taste quite right, leave the bottles out at room temp for another week or so. Keep following this method until your brew tastes just how you like it. 

    This process is called conditioning and during this time the yeast left in your beer can help clean up any off-flavors. Almost everything gets a little better with time and so will your beer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Motorcycledog from Craft Beer Quality Bewed this up with a couple additions of my own. Added a bit of honey to the mix. I have been saving this for a tasting session with some friends. Let it condition for about 4 weeks and couldn't wait any longer. Dark dark beer, great aroma and good mouth feel. Didn't have much head but that was probably my fault on the priming. It was sweet, malty, so so tasty. My tasting guest said if he didn't know I had brewed it he would have sworn it was a craft brewery specialty beer. Love it and will be making more of this. This is beer to keep on hand for special occasions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Mt50 from Truly great Trappist Ale I’ve been getting different Trappist Ales at a monastery nearby, Westmalle & Rochefort Dubbels & tripels and really like them, so I had to try the Abbey Trappist Dubbel. I tried one early @ 10 days and thought it was great. It’s been a month today and I have to say, this is one of the tastiest recipes I’ve made. Besides the forward malt flavor and the Saab hop notes I expected to get, & did, one of the things that attracts me to the Trappist Ales is the distinctive yeast flavor they have. Hard for me to describe but, a bit wild without being sour and they are still well balanced and easily drinkable. I am surprised at how right this recipe gets all these characteristics. A truly fine ale!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Jojo from Love it!!! let it sat for 4 weeks in the fermenter ( SAAZ hops was left inside the fermenter) and another 4 weeks to condition.....Bottled it with 12 oz bottle with caps and primed it according to instruction.......and what I got is a very stand up beer. Really dark in color and about half an inch of head. Malty with a slight bitterness and a strong punch. The hops charateristic wasnt to strong but yet perfect for this type of beer. Cant wait to do this again....Kudos from friends that tasted it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by gophers6 from Excellent Strong Beer I added 1-2 bag of booster, brought the abv up to 6.7%. Also, I added the Saaz hops to the fermenter after 2 weeks and went 1 more week. Real nice aroma from the hops. This brew turned out great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeremy from Much, MUCH better than the local crafts "Exceptional beer! On par with some of the $10-14-bottle craft brews at the LQ store. I've had numerous requests to brew a batch for people.I added hopps at 160 degrees for 20 minutes. Pitched yeast at 70 degrees. 2.5 weeks in the keg at an average temperature of 68 degrees. I let this sit in the bottle for 2 weeks before putting in the fridge for another 2 weeks."

    Rated 5 out of 5 by xrayd3 from Truly a great beer My friends and I were blown away with the quality, taste and depth of this beer. This was my very first time I've ever brewed beer and I hit a grand slam with this recipe. Smooth as silk but what a kick at about 8 ABV. Outstanding beer. Loved every sip.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by StauHausBrew from Forget all your trouble -- Have a Belgian Dubbel! Abbey Dubbel is starting to win me over -- perfect pour and Saaz aroma, very nice dark amber color, and a hoppy, clove finish! Underneath it all is the unmistakable Bewitched Amber Ale malt profile -- great recipe Mr. Beer!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Nik the brewer from Abbey Dubbel made me see double; superb! Love belgian beers, whether pale or strong, definitely my favorite style to drink or brew. I bought the ingredients for the recipe hoping to brew my first belgian styled beer and it delivered just that. I'm a bit of a beer snob so I know my belgians pretty well, and I can tell you that this recipe has the potential to create a pretty tasty beer. The only thing that struck me as odd was the lack of instructions on how to properly use the saaz hops with the muslin sack. I threw it into the boil for about 5-7 min and then removed it. Ill give my formal review of the beer below. I also used 1tsp of dextrose in each 16oz. bottle for the priming. Used grolsch bottles, fermented for 14 days, primed for 2 weeks, and conditioned so far for 3 weeks. Poured a dark, almost muddy colored, brown. Got two and half fingers of head at first pour, small bubbles, dissipated fairly quickly until it laced the top of the beer. In my opinion it was perfect head retention. Smell- earthy, with a hint of what smells like pear Taste is malty, very slight spice, somewhat sweet at first and then slight bitterness in aftertaste, tastes like a strong belgian ale. Hard to taste alcohol, other flavors cover that up nicely. Moderate mouth feel, not too heavy not too light. Overall a great beer if brewed correctly, I am surprised it turned out this well to be honest. I would definitely purchase this recipe again. Can't wait to impress my friends with this brew.
