Default Celis White Clone

Hey all, im looking for an accurate Celis White clone, I already have a Hoegaarden clone that I can fall back on, but personally im a Celis White guy. I searched for this already, but the only thing I could find was a recipe with Cascade as an aroma hop, which just doesn't seem right to me.

If anyone has anything please let me know!

Thanks

The recipe I have calls for cascade as well. Celis is an American version of a Belgian beer after all. If you dont like cascade (I cant imagine why) try Centennial or use East Kent/Saaz like the Hoe.

Celis White... Man when I was living in Athens Georgia I LOVED that brew. I havent even thought about it since then. I will have to look for it around here. Thanks for the thought.
Cheers
JJ

I do like cascade, I just figure this beer to be more noble hoppy

6 lbs of DME is 10 lbs grain...

Wheat DME is usually a 60/40 split...60 wheat/40 barley...

That would be 6 lbs wheat and 4 lbs barley...

I dimly recall reading somewhere that Pierre Celis used Cascades in Celis White precisely because it was an American iteration of a Belgian beer. I cannot document that recollection, but I'll try to track it down.

Theoretically speaking, why the hell not? The citrus flavors from the Cascades ought to meld quite well with the orange peel.

I plan on using this recipie for my next Wit batch, minus the candi sugar. I like having it around for a lawnmower beer, and don't need the extra alcohol.
