Description 

Belgium is home to some of the most unique and flavorful beers in the world. Some of these beers are available from specialty beer sellers in the United States, but with Belgian imports, the beer consumer usually pays quite a bit for a product of unknown freshness.

Our William's Belgian Double is a amber Belgian Ale with a crisp estery dryness, made with blended German malt extract, beet sugar, Hallertau Mittelfrauh hops, and Belgian yeast. Lightly hopped, it has a light amber color and a distinct dry estery finish (produced by the yeast and sugar content) that balances the malt sweetness. Alcohol:5.8%, IBU's 29

Includes 9 pounds of blended malt extract and pale beet sugar, German hops, 125 ml of liquid yeast, and corn sugar for carbonation. Makes 5 gallons with a starting gravity of at least 1.065

A good Belgian but...
Years ago this kit contained amber Belgian beet rock candy and the result was a spectacular brew. The current sugar resembles ordinary table sugar (similar to the enclosed priming sugar?) and tastes the same. Result is a lighter color. Have substituted the sugar for 10oz. blackstrap molasses and the result has improved taste and darkened color. Still a great kit but please put back the beet rock candy.

Another Winner From Williams
This is my third brew and I had been dying to try making a Belgian beer as they are my favorite. 

I was not disappointed as the folks at Williams Brewing have put together an easy to make authentic Belgian Double kit. 

My only deviation from the instructions was to oxygenate for 3 minutes once it was in the fermentation demijohn and it seemed to work out just great.

This was the first beer that I have put into a keg rather than bottles and it carbonated nicely using the forced carbonation method. 

I couldn't wait to try it so started drinking it after 1 week which meant that it was pretty cloudy but 3 weeks in it is definitely starting to clear up. 

If my calculations are correct it should be perfectly clear around the time that I pull the last pint!

All in all, very pleased. 

Great job Williams Brewing!

First-Rate Brew Second Time, Too!
This was the beer that came with the starter kit for batch 1. We brewed it again for batch 7. Not disappointed in the least.

It was good to come back to this one after the intervening batches. The only problem now: try a new brew, or stick with the ones we know we like... decisions, decisions...

Phenomenal Brew!!!
Wow this was by far the best beer Ive ever made! Done over a dozen malt extract kits and the Belgian Double was hands down the best tasting beer ever!! Great color, great malty finish, amazing flavor. I couldnt wait to get off work so I could go home and drink this. 

This is also the first beer kit Ive ever considered duplicating. Im sure Ill be making this one again and again.

UPS left the kit in the sun against a west facing stucco wall on the hottest day of the year. Two feet more would have been in the shade. What dry yeast would you recommend for this kit?
Try smacking the pack and seeing if it will swell. If it swells in 24 hours, it is fine, and go and brew. If not call us at 800-759-6025 and we can send a replacement yeast.
