Brewed it up on New Years Day, it's sitting in the primary. I'll give her a taste when it goes into the secondary this weekend.

.5 oz Styrian Golding 45 min
.5 oz Centennial 30 min
1.5 oz Styrian Golding 15 min
1.5 oz Cascade 5 min
mashing 151 at 75 min
My numbers in Beersmith came out at:
1.066 OG
1.013 Est FG
51.4 IBU
7 ABV

New Belgium website lists:
Pale, C-80, Midnight Wheat, Styrian Goldings, Centennial and Cascade. OG 17, TG 2.35, IBU 55 and ABV 6.2.

We'll see how close I am.
Here is how it turned out.
Mine
OG came in at 1.068, FG 1.016 and ABV 6.9
New Belgium
OG 1.070, FG 1.009 and ABV 7
Taste came in very close, I think I might play with the amount of the midnight wheat by adding a little more 1/4 lb at a time. Also I got an oxyenation system for Christmas, that might help me get my FG down a little closer to original. Had some friends try it after I tapped keg and they really like it.

I feel like there is some biscuit malt in the grain bill.

I just tasted my Snow Day clone from Austin Homebrew supply. OG was 1.072 and FG 1.019 which was the target. Primary for 2 weeks and in keg for 3 days. Tastes too sweet but maybe it just needs time. I sure hope so as I brewed 10 gallons and love that beer. If it doesn't change can I try adding a different yeast that attenuates lower than the White Labs 051? Thanks

BrewHass, I used WL 015 and found the kit too malty so you may be right.

Any advice? I'm not throwing this out. If nothing else I could blend it I guess but a real fix would be preferred. Again, it is very young.

BrewHass, I would just wait it out, I left mine in the primary for four weeks so that could be some of the difference too. Also at the bottom of the instructions it states: "This handcrafted beer will taste best after 5 weeks or more of storage"

Keep us posted
