This is old, but I am gonna bump it back up.

Any thoughts on what this brew would have for a grain bill?

I am thinking there is some wheat malt in there.

I was wondering the same thing...

a friend of mine did one that tastes really close to Bell's. I might try this one in the meantime...

I really want to put some effort into cloning this this year. As soon as it becomes available I'll grow up a starter and start stockpiling the yeast. I have seen no recipes, so I plan to fake it unless I come up with something solid between now and then.

It uses a blend of Hefe yeast and Belgian yeast. Probably something like 60% wheat and 40% 2row or pilsner. Maybe 20ibu. A little coriander and orange peel.

The yeast blend is what's going to get me. If I culture from the bottles who knows what I'll get if it's blended.

Your grain bill and bitterness is a good start, there's no spices though. It's all from the yeast; Winter White Ale

why not use a fresh Hefe and a Belgian yeast ?

I remember the beer has a clove note from the Hefe yeast.

I'm thinking about running an early test batch before the seasonal comes out with Fermentis T-58. People seem to find it to be a middle of the road belgian strain - not too hefe, and not too spicy either, and very adjustable by temp.

Hops ... UK Hallertau?
