I still haven't brewed it again

I've been far too busy with my BJCP and brew requests from friends, but I'll get back on it soon (I hope.)

well i kegged this the other day and it is still a little flat but it has a very bitter taste.the only thing i changed was the bitter orange peel i used sweet instead from the lhbs.It has the taste at first then bam bitterness.will let it go for a few and see if it mellows out at all.It was in the primary for 4 weeks then racked to keg.Fermentation temps were a little high when she took off around 74 cooled down to 68 then kept at 66-68 for the rest of fermentation.

I bottled a wit the other day and the taste is great but there is a bite to it at the end of the taste. Nothing horrid. Mine has only been in the bottle for a few days though. I'm going to wait until it is carbonated and really cold. I'm think mine may be the acidualted malt or chamomile tea. I only used .5oz bitter orange peel so I am rulling that out.

Here is a 5 gallon all-grain recipe that I will try:




This is not evident by the plain reading of the recipe, but I will prepare the unmalted wheat as a sort of 'hot cereal' prior to commencing the all-grain mash. I may add .5 lb of rolled oats while I'm at it.

Just went into the primary. Thanks to my awesome 82nd Airborne brother-in-law for funding this one for me as a Christmas present!

The result is quite good. Not quite Hoegaarden though. The wit yeast flavor in my clone is much more pronounced. The clone needs more foamy head too. All in all, I would make this again. The color is spot on!!
