This is all extract so itís easy-peasy. Steep grains for about 30 mins, turn up the heat and let her rip. Spices go in the boil with 15 minutes left and are strained out when added to the fermentor. Belgian yeasts are fun to use since you donít have to worry much about keeping them cool. Be shure to use a blow-off though. This stuff blew the lid of my primary like eight times and I find this yeast is always very vigorous and forms a lot of krausen.

I found that this was very good as soon as it reached full carbonation, which is drastically different from other beers I made with the Trappist Ale yeast. Though definitely put some down for at least a couple months if not longer to enjoy the full complexity of flavor.
