I'm going to follow the directions exactly.
Those that have made it a few times and have said it was excellent, how long did you boil it for?
I've made this all grain kit about 4 times, the partial mash kit at least two more. My sweetheart loves witbier and I rotate through 3-4 recipes to avoid monotony within the style.
I strongly suggest you follow the recipe to the letter the first time you make it. Boil it the prescribed 30 minutes. Forrest consulted Pierre Celis on this recipe.
After making it at least 6 times before
(with delicious results), I just made my first modification when I brewed it two weeks ago: I added .5 pound of oats and added a rest at 133 to get a better adjunct mash. I really enjoy the silky effect oats provide and wanted to try this technique out after reading about it in Gordon Strong's book.
I'm carbing it up, so I'll have to wait a week or so before I can evaluate it.
You will enjoy the beer EXACTLY as prescribed in the instructions. Even with my small change I stuck to the 30 minute boil.
