Recently brewed and bottled this. Hope she turns out well, brewed this one with the woman tryin to get her into a real hobby. Had to tweak it a little to mesh with the LHBS, used some s-33. Definetly was not gettin the crazy ferm like you guys were. And the s-33 is totally out of the style I know I know. Threw in a little carahelles too. Hey I guess I totally changed the recipe.

But thanks for the base recipe! If she turns out well I shall let you know.

Gotta love them white chicks.

Certainly interested in this. I have some WL500 that I need to use. I'm curious how this would change the profile of this beer over the Wit yeast. Thoughts?

Hi BierMuncher,

I have a question regarding the primary/secondary fermentation. Do you transfer the beer to a new bucket after finishing the primary fermentation and starting the secondary?

I brewed this on saturday, oddly enough the OG came out at 1050, and my efficiency is usually 75%. Mashed 1 hour at 154 and fly sparged for about 40 minutes. Any idea what might have caused this?

Holy freakin' buckets is this good!

I made mine with some bottle harvested Bell's Winter White yeast and this is going to be a house favorite. Awesome!

Brewed the extract version last night and woke up to an airlock full of foam. This thing is going bananas! Got a blow off tube on there now and we are bubbling away. I'm going to rack this onto some blueberries for the swmbo.

yes, 6 months later and that taste is all but gone...maybe it's a belgian yest thing or a water thing, but i've never exerienced that taste before in one of my beers, hard to describe, but definitely an off flavor...that said, just bottled a Dubbel Lite using wyeast 1214, sarted in the 60's, ramped to the 70's, and yes, same off flavor. i brewed maybe 15 beers in between with no sign of this, but none with Belgian yeast.

While kegging, noticed there is a layer ontop. What is the extra layer? Never seen that before. Yeast ontop and on bottom?
Edit: wlp400 used

WLP400 is notorious for being a clingy yeast. Likes to hang on to the fermenter walls...
