Yeast starter is going. Should be brewing this Friday night if all goes as planned.

Do the coriander and orange additions as close to flameout as possible. There won't be much left of them if you boil for 20 mins.

Brewing this now. Apparently 1/2lb of rice hulls wasn't enough. I have had to stir quite often to get the mash tun to drain.

Well, in the end everything went pretty well for this being my first ag wheat beer. I took my pre-boil gravity and it was 1.050 @ 6.25 gal. I did a bit of head scratching and double checked my ingredients and everything checked out normal. I did use an extra 1/2lb of wheat just because my LHBS had it in 1lb bags. Yeah, I got 88% efficiency apparently lol. I have always been around 72 previously. My only guess is that it was from all the stopping and stirring I had to do because it kept getting stuck. I also did a mash out for the first time. FG was 1.060 so I topped the fermenter up with some water to bring it down a little. Its chugging away this morning, I'll report back with results in a few weeks. I figure 10 day primary then straight to the keg.

Brewed this yesterday as two 1 gallon batches using kent goldings in one and centennial in the other just to see if I could taste a difference and if the centennial would make a difference both are within the style at under 30 idu. The OG was a little high at 1.052 but I figured what the heck go for it. The one in the orange home depot bucket (yes I have read about the risks) is a 60 min IPA style using mixture of chinook, centennial, and simcoe. The white bucket is the centennial blue balls and the jug is the goldings one. Super excited to try this one.

Bottled this yesterday and had to stop myself from drinking from the bottling spigot. Flat and young and it was still tasty. Going to be a tough two weeks waiting.

I zested two oranges and used that in place of the ounce of dried bitter orange. The bouquet is phenomenal.

I'd tell you what I have in primary/secondary/bottled/on tap but I get really lazy about keeping that updated. Why not stop on over for a beer instead?

I brewed this about 10 days ago. After 12 hours there was some airlock activity. It continued pretty steady for about 2 days. It slowed down after that but never stopped. Today @ day 10 I went downstairs and krausen was bubbleing up through the airlock. I use the wyeast belgian wit yeast. I know yeast kind of do there own thing but is this a trait of this particular yeast? Any thoughts.

I used the Wyeast Belgian Wit yeast:

First, I had to stop my stir plate with the starter as it continued to come through the top of the 2 liter Erlenmeyer flask.

Second, despite the fact I added Fermcap to the primary, it was coming through the airlock on Day 2. I put a blowoff tube in place and that stayed there for the next 5 days.

I don't think you have a problem on your hands...just some very active yeast!
