Just transfered my belgian wit to the secondary and trhrew some sweet orange peel in. This was my "weak wit" had an OG of 1.039...... bad mash but I think I got that figured out.... took a SG reading with what was left in the siphon.......1.010 and still looks like it is slowly fementing! Hope it is just excess co2 being released. if not I will end up wilth nothin left! Just thought I would share and see if anyone had anything similar happen:mug:

I have only done extract Wit before, but you know it's possible (though some would call it cheating) to add a bit of extract to your wort to bring the gravity up to where you want it. After a few batches, you ought to be able to predict your gravity pretty closely.

Glad to hear that someone actually prefers it a little light. I figured it would still turn out ok but I am still new to the brew so I just wanted some input to make me feel better:mug:
