Belgian Golden Strong Ale
Click To Enlarge

This quality 5-gallon kit creates an intense and flavorful golden strong Belgian beer. Belgian beers have become very popular for their increased body, wide differences in flavors, and a higher alcohol content than regular session beers. The hops include Fuggles for bittering and Czech Saaz for aroma. The recipe adds Belgian Candi Crystal Sugar for an intense flavor enhancement and alcohol boost.  The clarifier is Super Irish Moss by Five Star Chemicals. You can select your yeast and priming agent below. We have four Belgian Yeasts for your consideration with this beer.  

If you are interested in a higher level of alcohol in your beer, you can increase it in this beer by adding either Dried Malt Extract or Brewers Crystals. The Malt is the more expensive, but it increases the mouthfeel and body as well and is always the preferred option. Brewers Crystals is a blend of sugars that increase alcohol but do not increase the mouthfeel or body of the beer.  Thus, the Brewers Crystals add alcohol while keeping the light body of the original recipe.

GRAIN / HOP STEEPING BAGS:

These bags help secure your grains and hops, reducing the solids that go into the fermentation stage.  Nylon bags are reusable while the muslin bags tend to be a one-use bag.  For the hops, either selection will work.  If you select the muslin bags, you will get five bags, allowing you to use a separate bag for each hop addition.

ALCOHOL ENHANCEMENT

Dried Malt Extract (Pilsen) - The addition of 1.0 pound will add approximatelly 1% of alcohol to a five gallon batch.  Malt additions will increase the mouthfeel and body of the beer.

Brewers Crystal - The addition of 1.0 pound will add approximately 1% of alcohol to a five gallon batch, but will not increase the mouthfeel or body of the beer.

None - This beer recipe produces an estimated alcohol (ABV) of 9.7 percent.  Select this option if this is the correct level for you.
