Love a cold Belgian Wit in the summer.

Watch that Wit yeast though. It's gonna wanna climb up those carboy walls and take a nap. You'll need to give it a swirl now and again to wash that yeast back into the beer and put it back to work.

I already ordered the ingredients a few weeks ago for a Hefe and a Belgian...I'm still new to brewing so I didn't really notice they fermented at warmer temps. Guess I just got lucky in my picks


-- and I married a Korean, so I have wonderful homemade kimchi all the time

So, about three seperate fermentation chambers... good idea or waste of time? Also, how long before I should bottle this beast.

Maybe that's why I don't like Belgians & Hefes, I don't like hot weather either. After burning $8,000 on a top notch heat pump, I'm using it!

FWIW, Jamil's talked pretty strongly AGAINST fermenting hefes, at least, at such high temps (strongly recommends 67°). Pretty sure he's said the same about fermenting Belgians. I'd be inclined to do a water bath and try and keep temps as close to 70° as I could without being energy-wasteful. But, I *really* don't like tasting hot alcohol in my beers, which may be why I'm not a big fan of Belgians

I like my beers served at around 89 degrees, so I should be golden

You know, my hefe I brewed tastes better to me at room temp and barely carbed than cold and carbed. It seems to have this strong citrus bite when it's cold and carbed to style.

Hot beer?


I don't know about saving the planet, but my Belgian Wit I'm drinking right now sure can brighten up a $hitty day.
