Random brewing ideas (Rogue and Trappist)

Sometime when I get bored, here's a couple things:

Rogue beers I could use as jumping off points:

Chipotle Ale (was terrific)
Uber Pils (all Sterling)
Juniper Pale Ale (have been contemplating juniper beers)

Roger Protz, in his book on monastic brewing gives the following tidbits:

Orval: English crystal. Hallertauer and Styrians for boil, Kents dry.

Rochefort: Pilsner, Munich, Hallertauer and Styrians.

Westmalle: Pale, Northern Brewer. Sugar is dark for blue and yellow, pale for green.
