This is a excellent recipe. Mine turned out great. So far it is the only Hombrew that my wife likes. So did the neighbors. I did use the zest of 1 orange and 2 lemons like Agent did and I loved it. I am brewing up another batch of this tomorrow.

I pitched last night and it has not started to ferment yet. Strange.

I like this recipe. I'm going to brew it next weekend using WLP410 Belgian Wit yeast.

Too dark? Interesting, since there's nothing but light malt in this one.

Seems like most of my brews have been turning out darker in color than they should be. Its kind of weird.

Maybe you are getting darkness from excessive boiling, how long is your boil and do you stir often ?

Always 60 mins. Rapid cooling. 15 minute stirring intervals.

So I was out with the kids trick or treating and pulling the wagon and I had a few of my Summer Citrus Wheat left in the cooler. I thought it was a good time to share some of what summer brew I had left and I found it interesting that 2 different people at separate times said this beer tasted like a light 3Floyds Gumball Head. I had to have a Gumball Head last night to compare and I did notice the similarities in the 2.

Now the only things I did different in this batch were:
  1. No Orange Peels. I used the zest of 1 grapefruit instead
  2. For the yeast I used S-05

I made this beer 3 times this summer and tweaked it all 3 times. I love it.
