I made a witbier with fresh lemongrass stalks instead of any citrus peel and...

Yes...I thought it was good, and a lot of my friends (some of whom are kind of foodies and not all huge beer fans) liked it a lot. It's definitely interesting, that's for sure.

Since you're steeping you don't have to worry about the mash pH being messed up. No need to adjust pH.

You interpreted me correctly. It might work, but probably won't be as accurate as you want. Turbine flow meter, assuming it doesn't plug from grain or hop bits, will probably work better. Good...

Unless you got 100 lbs or something, it's probably too expensive to have them tested (which can be done). Best bet is to boil up some DME, pitch a measured quantity of your mystery hops, and after a...

There is no need to panic to get more yeast, but in general the sooner you add fresh yeast, the better.

If the airlock has started to bubble, you are probably going to be ok. The remaining yeast...

Good on your for asking and wondering, and realizing that it's still a good beer, just not the one you were shooting for. That's how brewers improve and/or innovate.

Leinenkugel's Red was the first non-BMC I started drinking. That was just as Miller started having a lot more influence over them, so they were a lot closer to craft than now.
