Rochefort 10 Clone: Any Critiques?
This is based on the famous Rochefort 8 Recipe that has found great success. All I did was change the malt and coriander amounts to account for a 5.0 gallon batch and my lower efficiency, plugged in two bottles of the Dark Candi Syrup available from MoreBeer.com, and then added a little more Pilsner malt to get 1.096 OG. I also increased the hops to get 27 IBUs. If any of you see something that I missed, PLEASE critique away.
I am also thinking of replacing the Carafa with Roasted Barley to try and get more of a red color than just a dark brown. Feel free to give feedback on that as well.
Anyway, here is the recipe.
