I've got a wit that I'll be bottling this weekend, and I was wondering if you had any good suggestions on what I could just throw right on to the existing yeast cake that might be a bit different? Mine was a pretty straightforward wit beer.

Any ideas?

If you like a mellow tasting but vey good beer, check out my Belgian BLonde recipe. Goes great on top of a wit yeast. If you are using BeerSmith or another program, you can convert to an extract version...otherwise let me know and I'll try and post it here.

I should be able to convert it. I'm pretty smrt.

That recipe does look pretty good, so I'll give it a whirl.

Here's my attempt at conversion with a calculator and a bit of a stretch of imagination:

3.00 Light Dry Malt Extract
2.75 Wheat Dry Malt Extract
0.50 American Crystal 10L
0.50 Flaked Wheat
0.50 Wheat Malt

yeast from previous batch (410)
1 oz. willamette hops @ 60 minutes

tastybrew.com says:

OG 1.053
FG 1.013
IBU 21
ABV 5.2 %
SRM 4

color:


So pretty close to yours. I'm steeping the grains listed.

I changed it a little. I want a bit more alcohol and I'm going to use styrian goldings, so I'm going with a pound of honey in there and 1 oz at 60 minutes and 1/2 an ounce at 10 minutes. Looks like it fits right in the style of a Special Belgian.
