My question would be how much will this impact my flavor and, Is it even worth it?
Fuggles will work fine. The IBU's on this beer are low, and the hop profile is really non-existent. Any clean bittering hop is fine. Fuggles, Mt Hood, Saaz, Sterling, Galena, Phoenix....etc.

It's not the hops that makes this beer so you have flexibility.

Hey BM, do you think this would benefit from 1lb of oats? I just want some silkier mouthfeel...

Hey Bier,

Thanks for the recipe and the ingredient help. I have it now sitting nicely in my fermenter. It blew out the top a bit, but not enough to blow the bubbler off I am darned thankful for rice hulls. Those things kept the sparge drain going despite the thick arse mash. Cant wait to try it out.

Yeah, I know. Time is short around here with three kids and training for a century ride.

Ahhh YES!!! Thanks BierMuncher!!!

I Brewed Ten Gallons on Memorial Day..Very Nice Recipe I am Soooooo Glad I read on the forum a lot and bought some Rice Hulls. I used a pound Don't know if it was too much, just wonder if I could have used less. I forgot to add the coriander though...so I made a coriander tea and added the next day.

This will be the lightest beer I have made to date.

0.75 oz Hallertauer [4.80 %] (60 min) Hops 13.9 IBU
0.75 oz Coriander Seed (Boil 5.0 min) Misc
0.75 oz Orange Peel, Bitter (Boil 5.0 min) Misc
1 Pkgs Belgian Wit Ale (White Labs #WLP400) Yeast-Wheat

I am going to brew this beer this week and got all of the ingredients.
1st: The dry extract says 60% wheat malt and 40% light barley malt. So does the recipe mean 1 lb of wheat/barley AND 1 lb of light malt OR 1lb of each so get 2 lbs of Wheat/barley combo extract. The lbs said all of the wheat is sold like this.

2nd I will be using flaked wheat. I think the lbs was a little surprised with all of the flaked wheat. I've use flaked barley in stouts but only a pound at a time. Is flaked wheat just a wheat version of pale malt?? Does it add fermentable sugars and such? I did buy some rice hulls. Thanks for your inputs, Charlie

Hey biermuncher, just wondering if you would approve on this bastardized version.

6lb 6-row
5lb wheat malt
.6oz marynka 8.6AA 60min (I've used this many times and it's a very clean bittering hop)
.75oz bitter orange peel 1 min.
.75oz coriander 1 min.
nottingham yeast
Primary 3 weeks at 68 degrees

What do you think?

Sounds good. A bit kicked up on the grain bill which will lend a richer taste.

If that orange peel is dired, I'd allow more than 1 minute in the boil. It will take longer than that just to hydrate and sink into the boil.

I like to presoak my spice in warm water so they integrate faster...then give them 5+/- minutes in the boil.
