I drew a couple of pints last night from my Rochefort 8 clone keg for a buddy and me last night. Hoisted up the keg, and it felt damn light. :( Looks like I need to go do a little Belgian Christmas shopping myself.

Chumley, was that the Dutch homebrew club contest recipe? It's a great one! I jusat picked up some WY1762 so I could do another couple batches.

Yes, Denny, it was. A righteous recipe. And true to form for every great recipe, it just gets better and better the closer you get to the bottom of the keg.

Ohh on a brewing Rochie 8 note...
All it would take to make Rochie10 would be to bring that .72 pounds of sugar up to about 1.5 :)

Sorry, but i tend to think this way... heh

Yeah, I'm gonna do an 8 first, then beef up the recipe and pitch a 10 on the cake from the 8. Will it stress the yeast? Hell, yes, but that's the fun of it!

Can someone direct me to that Danish HB club's Rochefort 8 recipe? Or should i just use the Clonebrews Rochefort 10 recipe and cut the sugar in half?

Compare the two recipes and decide for yourself, Chris:

http://www.geocities.com/iluvhops/brouwsel/rochefort8.html

By the way, the Rochefort 10 recipe is in Beer Captured. It omits the flaked corn and Special B malt, includes munich and biscuit malt, and substitutes chocolate malt for the debittered black malt in the Dutch Rochefort 8 recipe.

Hmm... maybe I'll do a hybrid! Some Special B, some Biscuit, some Munich, lose the flaked corn and coriander.

Anyone ever brew both of these? How do they compare (besides the obvious difference that doubling the sugar for 10 makes)?

In response to Walt's original post, now there is a Bush (the Bush de Noel) I could vote for.

Don't lose the corn in that Rochie recipe. I think it's really essential to capture the flavor.

Personally, I like Special B in my Belgians...:)
