My wife has recently requested that I start another batch of Belgian Quad to replace the dwindling supply I have in the house. Since this takes a 6-12 months depending on how long I age it I started the project in motion with this beer.
Quads take a large quantity of yeast to ferment the 10% worth of alcohol producing sugars. Instead of making a large starter for the one vial of yeast I want to use I decided to make a 5 gallon batch of beer to make all of my yeast, and I’ll be able to have 5 gallons of beer to drink while I wait. This beer is pretty basic.
