    Suggestions for a Blanche De Bruxelles Clone

    Over the past year I've gone through 7 iterations of trying to clone Blanche De Bruxelles Witte Beer. I'm not a big fan of the wit style but I've always really liked BdB and now that I've gone through this exercise, I think the reason why I like it is due to how sweet and fruity it is compared...

    Wit Beer Split: Whiteout vs Kveiking

    Had a bunch of cilantro go to seed this year so decided to make a wit beer. The coriander was a smaller seed than the kind I've bought at the homebrew store and taste a lot different as well. More citrusy, less of the somewhat meaty flavor coriander has... Wanted to make it interesting by...

    Possible Contamination Issue? Maybe....

    So I am brewing a wheat extract belgian wit with Oak Chips. Everything is fermenting really well except for after a week, I decided I wanted to rack the batch to get the last of the oak chips out.

    Pink Peppercorn Wit?

    I want to try something different with a wit, and got the idea of using the sweet, tangy, slightly spicy pink 'peppercorn'. My main question is when to use it and how much? I want it to be one of the predominant flavors, but not to overshadow the wheat and hops. Any suggestions are appreciated!
