Default I Have A Twisted Wit


I spent a lot of time last week tinkering in BeerToolsPro trying to come up with a Wit from scratch. After many iterations and adjustments throughout the week, below is what I settled on and brewed yesterday after trips to 3 different LHBS and placing an online order for the dry hops. My achieved OG was 1.052. This batch smelled amazing; I cannot wait for it to mature! Feedback and suggestions are welcome...

That's a lot of peel and spices!

How did the hydro sample taste?

Default I Have A Twisted Wit


Yeah, I had recently made BBs Witbier kit and was wanting a wit with more "zest". I think I'm getting it here! I could definitely taste the honey and a mixture of fruits; not over the top tho which is perfect! The Forbidden Fruit yeast had huge aroma; the batch was bubbling after 4 hours. I'll may try to sample again when it's time to dry hop.
