Default Firefly Witbier

Hey everyone,
I recently came across an unusual recipe that calls for the addition of "several fireflies" just before boiling. Apparently, this beer has won an award, namely first place in the Naked Pueblo Homebrew competition. I was wondering if anyone here has tried this or has any idea what kind of taste, if any, fireflies would impart on the final product.

Here's the rest of the ingredients to help you get an idea of the taste:
• 6lb Belgian Pils
• 4.6lb White Summer Wheat
• 9.6oz Flaked Oats
• 1.0oz 5.2% EK Goldings - 60min
• 0.5oz 5.2% Styrian Goldings - 10min
• 0.5oz 5.2% Styrian Goldings - @knockout
• 0.5oz Curacao Orange Peel
• 0.5oz Sweet Orange Peel
• 2.0oz Coriander Seed
• 5ml Lactic Acid
• Wyeast #3944 Belgian White Ale Yeast
• Several Fireflies

Slainte!

Fireflys. Hmm.. Nope, never heard of that. Now eye of newt... that can really make a nice Wit addition. Please post back how it turns out. Cant imagine the benefit of adding fireflys. But hey its won the Naked Pueblo Homebrew competition after all. Good Luck M8B

You're going to need a BIG fermenter...



Sorry. The geek in me had to do it...
