I made this as per the instructions using dextrose. It fermented right down to 1010 and cleared quite nicely after putting in secondary for 2 weeks in my garage in the winter.

It was pretty good after a month and didn't change significantly afterwards. Carbonation was alright, quite a small head that fades away fairly quickly.

I was impressed with the taste of it. It's nowhere near as complex as many commercial triples but it tastes smooth despite the strength and is a pleasant drink. It's also very easy to get right. If you like Belgian beer and want to do kits then I'd recommend this as a great starter.

Hi, just bought this kit and I'm looking fwd to getting it started. Did you use the supplied yeast? I was thinking of getting some Mangrove Jacks Belgium Ale yeast.

Yeah I used that and it turned out decent enough but trying a different one can't hurt. A lot of people really like Brewferm kits exactly as they are but I'm not a huge fan of the yeast character. It ferments very well but has a particular taste. I've never used Mangrove Jacks yeast though.

Put this on just before the football started with 400ml golden syrup and 150g sugar. It was bubbling by half time. Hydrometer read as 1.082 but it was about 28c. Set heater to 25c.

Been bottled 2 weeks now. Had one last night for research purposes. So much flavour, definatelt needs time for the flavours to merge, Will leave the rest till Christmas.

I'm impressed with this one too, I've done a number of the Brewferm kits and this one has come out one of the best. Not sure if that's because I used Golden Syrup rather than sugar. Also seems to have matured a lot quicker, very drinkable after 2 months compared to others which took 6-12 months to come good.

I was in the local specialist beer shop last weekend and picked up some Belgian beers, I had the Brewferm in amongst these and it held it's own, was better than some of them IMHO.

Just finished brewing this kit. Did it standard using brown candy sugar. Starting OG 1.066, FG 1.010, and prior to adding priming sugar the wort was clear and tasted great. However I decided to batch prime using soft brown sugar, and on transferring the wort onto the dissolved sugar I got some of the sediment into the vessel making it quite cloudy.
I decided to bottle after seeking forum members advice, cloudy but hopefully this drops out and clears with time. I hope to leave this for about 6 months, fingers crossed.

And here it is. Made is several times now with Golden Syrup, always a stunning beer after 4-5 months.
