Last night we finally bottled our tripel. It sat in primary fermentation for about 3 weeks and then secondary fermentation for about 2 weeks. Now our tripel is in for a third round of fermentation (how appropriate) through bottle conditioning. The sample I took last night was just as good as the one I took a couple weeks ago. I can't wait to try it once it's properly carbonated.
Here's what my once-tidy homebrewing storage nook looks like now:
It's starting to take over the bathroom! Of course, the biggest item there is ALL THE BEER, a little more than three cases right now. That's what pipelining homebrewing operations will do. I don't think I'll be doing that again anytime soon. In fact, I'm not going to brew any more until I put a dent in that pile! Unless I go on a bender, it's going to take a while to drink 49 bottles of 9.3% abv tripel.
I see some tripel gifting in my future....
