Default Just Another Brew Day...(Pics)

So it's 14 degrees outside and snowing. The SWMBO is upstairs watching some black and white movies in front of the fireplace. The dogs are tug-o-warring over an old sock in the family room. I...have...got...to...brew... I'm already stocked up on APA's, IPA's, IIPA's, Barleywine, Nut Brown Ale, Mild, Cream Ale, Stout, Vienna Lager (Ale), Blonde's and English Pales. I don't normally do this in the winter, but one of my daughters has moved back home from college and has been begging for it so...it was time to break out the oranges...the coriander and some flaked wheat and whip up 10 gallos of my "Your WIT-ness" Belgian wit.

First you gotta zest about 8 large oranges. Man it smells good:

Then you have to break in to your one-pound bag of coriander:

Then you measure out a nice healthy dose...in this case, two ounces for a 10-gallon batch:

Then you have to break out the coffee mill that is no longer used for a coffee mill:

One nice ingredient that lends some smooth floral tones is chamomile tea...in this case, four tea bags (hold the tea bagging jokes):

Now this smells nice. Oh...and a couple tablespoons of black pepper for some nice bite:

Pause to feed the mutts:

That does sound like a great brew. I am excited to hear about how it turns out.

Yeah, I've brewed it a few times. Very nice. A bit more creamy and robust in flavor...but still just south of 4%.

I'v never heard of adding flour to a beer before. Seems a little odd?
