words of whit?
Yo so I want to make some belgian whit, cause damn. It's the bomb. The problem is, I don't have a quality recipe for it. I'm goin for the coriander/orange peel vibe, so if anyone has a recipe that they enjoy, I'd really appreciate a reply. :cool:

This one has yet to be bottled / drank so I can't vouch for final taste but it fits the description you are looking for. This thing was in primary for 13 days and I finally moved it to secondary although it was still bubbling every 10 seconds!!! 25 days since brew day now and it still shows signs of active fermentation. I may bottle it in another week.

--6# extra light DME
--3# Honey
used Burlesons brand clover honey
--0.5# carapils grains
--2oz Hallertauer (5.2% aa)
--1.74oz coriander seed - ground just prior to brew day
called for 2 oz but this was conveniently the ammount in two jars purchased from Wal-Mart.
--1.4oz fresh grated orange peel
called for 1 oz but this was one orange worth.
--White Labs WLP550 Belgian Ale

--5.5gal - steep carapils @ 155 for 45 min
--1gal sparge of grains @ 170f => 6.5 gal initial volume for boil
