Brewing only my second batch. Using extract. Followed the recipe Who's in the Garden Grand Cru in the Joy of Homebrewing book. This recipe is a Belgian Wit beer, with honey, coriander seed and orange peel.
I put it in the primary fermenter with a starting gravity of 1.051. The wort was a little warm when I pitched the yeast (Wyeast Belgium wit), 80 degrees.
This was almost 6 days ago. After 4 days the gravity was 1.044 and today (almost 6 days) the gravity is 1.0034. So it is still dropping and that is good. But it seems pretty slow. I think the book says it should drop to 1.011 (I might be wrong with that number).
It smells and tastes fine. There is a heavy head of krausen on top.
I plan to just wait it out, but anyone have any other thoughts? Does the honey slow the fermentation?
