PS - Sam and dude. Booked my tickets, flying into Norfolk/Hampton Oct 8 - 16th. In case we can hookup sometime during my visit. Going to DC for 2-3 days as well but not sure yet what days during my stay. Got the wife and daughter with so I don't have 100% control of my time
Candi sugar? Many Belgians use it, but I've never seen a wit recipe that called for it. Candi is normally used in the bigger beers to add alcohol while keeping the body lighter.

We'll definitely have to try and put something together for your visit!

Yep, that was it. Thanks for the info. Nice selection and price at my LHBS. The help might not be as knowledgable as should be though I guess.

I know this is an old thread, however, I'm interested in making the Hoegaarden and was wondering if anybody made it according to the original poster's recipe/instructions? If so, how'd it turn out? Was it close to the Hoegaarden?

Any info on the OG and FG?

thanks,
dave

Has anyone brewed this with and without the oats and/or rice? I can't seem to place the oat or rice contribution in a witbier. Seems out of place to me.

I believe the small amount of oats is to add body and the rice hulls are to aid in sparging so you don't get a stuck sparge.

.5 oz cascade @ 60
.5 oz cascade @ 5
.5 oz coriander (crushed) @ 15
.5 oz bitter orange peel @15
.25 oz sweet orange peel @ 15
1 tbsp yeast nutrient @ 15
1tbsp irish moss @ 15

60 Min mash @ 150F & 60 min boil.
2 packs wlp400 in a 2L starter 2 min oxygenation.
68F for 1.5 weeks force carbed @ 45psi&34F for ~24hours then down to 20psi&34F for another 24hrs
