Four days after bottling and can't wait anymore!!! Here it is. My changes were as follows. 1/2 oz of bitter and 1/2 oz sweet orange at 15 1/4 oz each at 2 min. 1/2oz coriander at 15 1/4 oz at 2. 1/8 tsp nutmeg at 15 1/8 tsp at 2. The orange really shines through! The WLP400 gave it a little funk as well, the spices are a great touch. Thanks for the recipe!

Thank you for sharing your changes. I look forward to trying this new version later in the summer. I like the increase in the amounts of orange and coriander as well as breaking these into different times for their additions.

I was having one now and realized I forgot to also mention I did add the 4oz of honey malt. Obviously helped the color but also is giving a heavenly hint of honey to the aroma .

I am going to brew this again in a few weeks. Do you have any more suggestions for changes to your version of the recipe?

I was thinking of either using some seeds/grains of paradise or nutmeg in my batch. Are you satisfied with the amount of nutmeg you are using?

Yeah it was a good amount IMO. I'd be interested in trying the grains of paradise though.

Brewing this modified recipe on Friday!!!
The only difference is that I am going to pitch with harvested WY1214.
It says on the Wyeast site that it can be used in Wits, but I have yet to find a recipe that calls out for it. My guess is that the wit strains would produce less less of those spicy/ester/phenols - that I'm so fond of.

Would you think that the extra funk I like will still work with the orange/spice additions?

How what your body in this recipe? The glass looks great. Going to be making a traditional on today myself pitching the Wyeast and sticking with coriander and orange only. Used powdered coriander last time and will again but am drastically pulling back to only have a hint and not a bomb like I did last round. I like your timing on the additions though and will probably do something similar with this batch.
