Last batch I used White Labs Monastery yeast first then the Lakvin Montpellier Wine yeast for the secondary fermentation and it turned out really good. This time I’m trying the Wyeast smack pack. It took off like crazy so hopefully it will be as good.
Ok so I fermented in primary for a month. Kegged it and put some co2. Drank some, could not tell the difference from the real thing. One of the best extract kits out there.
This recipe is excellent. I just drank a bottle that was bottled almost exactly one year ago and has been in my beer fridge for about 9 months. Flavor and body is excellent. Brewing details: I brewed with 2 weeks in primary fermenter and 2 weeks in a secondary fermenter. Yeast was Wyeast 1214 Abbey Ale. AIH, thank you for having this recipe!
This is such an awesome clone I have made it twice. And I will continue to purchase going forward. A must try!!
This beer is very good after a month in the bottle but do yourself a favor and let it age. Most of this batch was gone within 4 months but I did manage to hang on to a few bottles for extended aging. I tucked away 6 bottles for two years and it is now absolutely fantastic. So much better than when it was "young". Nearly identical to the real Chimay! Brew it up and keep your hands off of it. Forget you have it. Its 10 times better and well worth the wait!
