So a buddy of mine brewed up a Belgian Wit using a recipe I cobbled together from several sources and recipes.
Here's what we used - How does this sound?
1# Flaked Wheat (Steeped while water came to boil)
.5# Flaked Oates (steeped while water came to boil)
3# Extra Pale DME
3# Wheat DME
1 oz. East Kent Goldings (boil for 60)
.5 oz. Saaz (boil for 15 minues)
.75 oz. Crushed Corriander (boil for 15 minutes)
.5 oz. Saaz (boil for 5 minutes)
1 oz Bitter Orange (boil for 5 minutes)
Wyeast 3944 (Belgian Wit)
We racked it to a plastic bucket primary with a 2 piece airlock. Somehow in the mix up (my wife was having a bunch of people over right as we were finishing) I forgot to take a starting gravity reading.
Which leads me to part to. Blow-Overs. I checked this morning and I have an airlock full of Belgian Wit. I'm hesitant to remove the airlock and mess with it while it's actively fermenting as it is. What should I do? Hold off, wait until things calm down and replace the airlock when major activity ceases? Obviously next time, check the gravity and use a blow-off tube (which I don't have access to right now). For the interim, I'm thinking of putting a pint glass upside down on over the airlock to contain any major explosions. Will I have any problems handling it this way?
Thanks for the help.
