Batch 7 - III Tripel

OK so at Meredith's suggestion made a Tripel today - Took this recipe as a start and made a few substitutions/changes.

4 oz Belgian Aromatic Malt
4 oz Carafoam
10.666 lb Pale Malt Extract Liquid
4 oz Malto Dextrin
1 lb Belgian Candi Sugar (brown, not clear)
1.5 oz Styrian Goldings hops (60 min)
0.5 oz Styrian Goldings hops (15 min)
1 tsp Irish Moss (15 min)

Wyeast 3787 Trappist Slap Pack

Wow, that's a lot of LME - I put a bit too much water in to start, and as a result had a whole MESS of boilovers. Oh well, after about 45 minutes it finally settled down - I need to remember that LME adds liquid. Well I am an idiot, but it seemed to turn out OK.

OG: 1.080 (10.5% potential abv)
Brew Day: 6/22/2008

Bottled: 7/21/2008
Bottled at FG 1.020
ABV - 7.875%

Wort tastes good - caramel deliciousness. A little lower alcohol than I'd have thought...
