So a while back in this thread
I posted about a wit that I wanted to brew, and I finally came up with a recipe I liked and brewed it. Here's the recipe:
Amount Item Type % or IBU
1.00 lb Rice Hulls (0.0 SRM) Adjunct 9.5 %
4.50 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 42.9 %
4.50 lb Wheat, Flaked (1.6 SRM) Grain 42.9 %
0.50 lb Oats, Flaked (1.0 SRM) Grain 4.8 %
0.75 oz Saaz [4.00%] (60 min) Hops 10.8 IBU
0.50 oz Saaz [4.00%] (15 min) Hops 3.6 IBU
0.07 oz Seeds of Paradise (Boil 10.0 min) Misc
0.75 oz Orange Peel, Bitter (Boil 15.0 min) Misc
1.00 oz Coriander Seed (Boil 15.0 min) Misc
1 Pkgs Belgian Wit Ale (White Labs #WLP400) Yeast-Wheat
The Seeds o' Paradise were .07oz, because that's the qty my LHBS sold them in. I've never used them before but after I crushed them up, they smelled great.
SO brewday was a while back, and it was a really nice, event free brewday, up until the point when I took my gravity. It was supposed to be 1.051, and My reading was 1.032.
I'm not sure exactly what happened, but it was a single infusion mash, about 153F for an hour. Water was measured properly, and I soaked my hulls in hot water before mash-in.
The final product is tasty, but is definitely lacking something. (About 20 points of something).
Any advice? Thanks in advance.
