I'm considering brewing this and then splitting it into halves for the secondary. My plan is to leave half as is and put the other half with about 3 pounds of strawberries. Is there going to be any issue doing this? This is only my second brew on my own but it seems simple enough.

BM, what do you think about pitching this recipe to a wyeast 3068 yeast cake and then pitching wyeast 3942? will the 2 yeasts clash in flavor?

holy smokes!
That is one fine beer.
I followed the all grain recipe but did it BIAB using a 30qt turkey fryer, sparged the bag with about a gallon of 168F water.
This was my first all grain and I have to say, whoa. The wife doesn't care for it too much but she hasn't liked anything I've brewed except for a Bud Like.
This one reminds me of a Hefe on tap that I had up in Helen, GA. on a patio next to the Chattahoochee. Darn fine beer. Maybe I screwed this one up too (which I do quite often) but I like it... a lot. Nice clove flavor with a hint of banana and a hint of wheat.

Ran out of SWMBO's favorite and she's been nabbing my stash of this. Pretty good stuff.

Did you pitch on a whole yeast cake? Or did you dump some out?

How do you think this recipe would be with 3 lbs raspberry puree and a less estery yeast like wyeast 1010?

I AG brewed this a couple of weeks ago, hit all the numbers spot on. Fermentation rocketed away no problems at all. I used Wyeast 3944. I took the first SG reading last night and it's sitting at 1.013, still with a large krausen on top so I'm letting it sit for a few more days.

My question: is it supposed to be this watery prior to carbonation? Hydro sample tasted pretty thin. This is my first Belgian, I'm wondering if carbonation will up the body feel.

This has been in my keg for awhile and is really clear. Should this beer be clear or should I swirl the keg a bit to get the yeast back into suspension.

once settled, all the yeast is going to suck out the dip tube on your first draft anyway, so i'm not sure its going to matter. it'll probably cloud up once cooled

It has been on tap for about a month now. It is pretty clear drinking beer. I had a bluemoon from a bar last night and it was super cloudy. You can easily see through the SWMBO. Just want to make sure I hit the style right.
