Notes
  • based on "Westbound Quad" recipe on the HBA website/zymurgy magazine. That called for 1.1kg dark candi sugar @ 180L. I'll use 180 if I can find it, otherwise I'll mix/match dark and light to try and hit about 20 SRM.

    the TL;DR
    MALTS (for 20L batch)
    15 lb. (6.8 kg) Belgian Pilsner malt
    2.5 lb. (1.13 kg) 180° L dark candi sugar

    Original Gravity: 1.091 (21.8° P)
    Final Gravity: 1.009 (2.3° P)
    ABV: 11%
    IBU: 30
    SRM: 29
    Efficiency: 75%

    update 2019-10-17: first attempt at this ended up looking like a tripel because the candi sugar was not as dark as advertised (60°L rather than 275). Fixed by making a reduction of Special B and Chocolate malt (recipe updated).
