This one is in the fermentor with using WYEAST 3463 as I couldnt get my hands on the 3944.

Not sure of the SG because I did a few readings with my hydrometer and kept getting different numbers. The hydrometer was sticking to the sides of the theif, so I really don't know how well i did. Oh well, it will be beer and it will be delicious.

Hi there,

I was wondering if this recipe was more like the original Hoegaarden, or closer to the modern rendition?

I also heard there was a Celis White clone recipe in Radical Brewing, I was wondering if any of you had any experience with it, and what the recipe itself was like?

Thanks in advance for the help

This version is like the Hoegaarden that you can get in the stores today.

This recipe is said to be from Pierre Celis, founder or modern day Hoegaarden.

I wouldn't. Coriander is what gives it the aroma. Cloves are mighty powerful.

Yeah. Use the coriander as called for asking with butter orange peel.

I once had a buddy who made a clove beer, well it was nasty and over done. Maybe ok in cider at small amounts. In hefeweizens it comes from the yeast Esters.

A local brewery made a Hoegaarden "like" beer using orange and cloves. It's turned into my wife's favorite. I'll start with coriander, but if done lightly cloves can make a pretty awesome beer, but I don't know if can be repeated as nicely with small batch homebrew.

Clove can work, but it needs to be slight in taste in my opinion. I think you need to ponder what you taste on spiced beers (Like, is it really there?). I think if its obvious it generally too much. I think most BJCP people will say the same thing.
