What would be the implications of pitching "Doc's Imperial Vanilla Bourbon Porter" on top of a Belgian Strong Ale, that I used the Wyeast 1388 yeast in?

Big D.

Less hops and you would could almost call it a Tripel Karmeliet clone. :)

karmeliet would be nice, have you cloned it Warren? how did it turn out.?
is there a specific Wyeast that goes with the TK.?

does the fact that 1388 is classed as a strong ale yeast.. make it not suitable for a lower gravity brew.?

Never tried to clone it Kong. Like to be able to though.

About all I know about TK is that it's made from Barley, Wheat and Oats in malted and unmalted form. Hopping is Styrian Goldings and it is spiced.

You want an OG of about 1.080. From there you're on your own. :rolleyes:

sounds intriguing. guess that makes it "docs imperial strong belgian vanilla bourbon porter". what a mouthfull.
im thinking some of the flavors may get lost in translation. but may also be one hell of a tasty beer.

I have done a stout with a belgian yeast, and the results were mixed. Probably not something I would do again, but maybe if I had the time to tweak the recipe out and refine it. Taylor it to the flavors of the yeast. I'd be interested in hearing how that comes out!
