All Grain HomeBrew Rum Raisin Belgian Dubbel Recipe

Profile: HomeBrew recipe for a Belgian Style Dubbel flavored with rum-soaked raisins. Malty and rich with bold dark fruit flavors. Raisin flavors come from the fruit and use of Belgian Special B malt. Touch of oaky rum comes from secondary aging on rum-soaked oak chips.

    Just tapped this after a long 3 month wait. Smooth, clean, Belgian overtones with the soft raisin and rum wood flavors. One of my favorite brews! Will be doing this one again!
