Kudos on the Witbier. That's going to be delicious! Get those brewing this weekend so you can enjoy them ASAP. For schedule's sake, you're probably looking at 2 weeks in the fermenter and another 3-4 weeks to carbonate after bottling. Still, looks like you are getting the right stuff from the get go! Best of luck.

Congrats.

If you liked brewing with the Mr Beer kit you should really like what you can do with the larger kit. Extracts with steeping grains add a little something extra, then you can try a mini mash. After that explore BIAB all grain and if you enjoy that you can get the equipment for traditional all grain.

Enjoy!

My boys talked me into the witbier. Since they're buying it for me it won't hurt to give them something back. I figure I'll make it first then the imperial blonde.

Here's the description of the imperial blonde.

Imperial Blonde This recipe produces a malty, high gravity, full-bodied version of this easy drinking, well-rounded beer style. Golden in color, Imperial Blonde Ale uses the lightest malt extract available and a unique balance of domestic and imported hops. A great recipe if you like big blondes! 7-8% ABV.
