Just brewed today! I brewed a belgian wheat kit my local home brew shop put together. I wanted a higher ABV. I added my first round of hops at 60 min., second round at 18 mins (I dont know if this changes much..but I knew that the flavor would be off without giving just a little more hop aroma than normal) I added at the 10 min mark coriander and I believe it to be dried orange peel and 1 cup of table sugar (in hopes of raising gravity). after flameout I poured into my primary through a strainer and hit it with my wort cooler.
I started a boil with 2 gallons of water. I added my recycled spices and hop additions. I heated this up and let boil for about 1 minute. I poured this into my primary through a strainer pitched my white labs belgian wit ale yeast liquid yeast.
Does anyone have any idea on how this is going to turn out? I know that using table sugar like this will reduce the body. does the early hop addition and the recycling of spices make up for that?
