I took 2nd place in Belgian Strong Golden Ale at The Best of Brooklyn with this recipe...
12 lbs 2row pale male
2 lbs wheat malt
4 oz Sauer malt (I have high pH water)
1.5 lbs invert sugar
1 oz Styrian Goldings 5.25AA 60 min
.5 oz Saaz 3.5 AA 30 min
.5 oz Saaz 3.5 AA 15 min
mash in at 125F for 20 min
ramp up to 148F and hold 1 hour
You can use pilsner malt if you want, and add more base malt to make it a triple. Great simple recipe!

Waco Bob, go to this site, and look at Tomme Arthur's recipe for a dubbel:
Someone here pointed me out this link a while ago. Although I haven't brewed it yet (its on the summer brewing schedule), I had this on tap last year while visiting the San Diego area and thought it was about the best dubbel I've ever had.

I always drink my beers 'fresh', within a couple of months. Should a dubbel be aged? I'd better sample a bottle regularly and decided for myself.
Thanks for the response guys.

Dubbels are pretty tasty when fresh, for a 1.060-1.075 beer. For me, they are what I call a session beer.

Here's a Belgian Triple extract for you.
0.5 lbs. Dingemans Carmel Pils (Steeped)
9.5 lbs. Amber LME
1 lbs. Clear Belgian Candi Sugar
1 oz. Northern Brewer (60 min)
1 oz. Saaz (1 min)
Wyeast #3787 Trappist
This one needs to age and bottle condition for about 3 months, but I found it was well worth the wait.

I've made this and it is awesome. I've also tasted a version made by a friend and it was equally good - in fact he made it first and gave me the link.
A seriously simple recipe which tastes excellent!
