025* Fat Tire +1 Clone

This one kind of got away from me during the boil.  I ended up adding some top water to bring the post boil to 5 gallons.  I was in a rush and didn't take a gravity reading after doing this ($#%&*).   I continued to have sparging problems and ended up with a lot of gunk in the fermenter.  The smack pack never really inflated and the fermentation seemed to start a little late.  It seems to me that I remember hearing that Belgian yeasts have a tendency to be tempermental.  I still have high hopes for this beer, though, despite the brewing challenges.
