Green Tea Belgian Wit.
Knocks the socks off beer lovers and beer 'haters' (really just unconverted beer lovers). The tea adds a fantastic smoothness with nice bitterness in the head and some sweetness in the finish. The taste is subtle if you're not looking for it, but certainly distinctive. Below is my recipe with my notes. If (and by 'if' I mean 'when') I do this again, I'm going to let the tea secondary for at least 10 days.

Green Tea Belgian Wit
Brew Date: September 15, 2012

3 lb LD Carlson Briess Golden Light DME
3 lb LD Carlson Briess Wheat DME

0.75 oz Cascade 60 min
0.2 oz 5 min
0.05 oz 0 min

1 oz coriander at 5 min
1 oz orange peel at 5 min
1.5 oz Dragonwell Green Tea

WLABS Belgian Witbier

Seemed to be a top fermenting yeast…looked really funky and was kinda annoying.

Potential alcohol: about 8?

Moved to secondary: Sept 22
Added 1.5 oz wegmans dragonwell green tea
Bottled: 9/28/12
Used about 6 oz bottling sugar

Taste notes: Over carbonated: Use less sugar next time
Fantastic taste. Good amount of green tea flavor, warm/smooth aftertaste, good head retention. Only change: less bottling sugar, longer in the secondary to finish fermentation of the tea.

This is a good place to poke around while you wait for replies.

You could just look in the recipe databse, which thickhead posted for you or the pull down under member's avatar that says "recipes", to find our best recipes. Or just look at the recipes that are popped up in the recipe or database section of the forum, that have the largest amount of posts on here, to see the most popular. Why do we need to recreate them on this thread, when they're already on here?
