When we find out how many bodies you buried in the basement, will we be more shocked or disappointed at the number?

mmm....Wit......(insert Homer Simpson drooling here)

I made my first and only wit last summer. It was the best summer beer I've ever made....yours sounds awesome too.

I noticed Northern Brewer has an Imperial Wit kit....now that's an interesting idea.
