Awesome, thanks Sam. If I get out to Hampton this fall (80% chance) it'd be great to hook up with you and dude for some sort of brewski extravaganza. If not brewing, then drinking ;). Was going to bring some HB out for my son, will just have to up the amounts... (not sure of limits :))

thanks again.

I PM'ed O earlier this year on this. Son is a newb in imagery analysis. Working graveyard or whatever you guys call it. Just got there in January after San Antonio (remember S.A.? :p ) and Tech School in San Angelo.

I tend to be spur of the moment and why I'm not sure if I'm making it out there yet... I got a wedding in CA then another wedding and a HS reunion up nort' der hey in WI (thats for dude) so still not sure if I'm making it out there yet. I gotta work sometime but do believe I got the time off...

Sam and/or others who've done Beligium Wits. Got the goods to do this Celis clone for this weekend. Local HBS guy asked if I needed the (forgot exact phrase) candy whatever. I said recipe didn't call for it; he was surprised. Any comments? I'm not familiar.

PS - Sam and dude. Booked my tickets, flying into Norfolk/Hampton Oct 8 - 16th. In case we can hookup sometime during my visit. Going to DC for 2-3 days as well but not sure yet what days during my stay. Got the wife and daughter with so I don't have 100% control of my time :eek:

Shoot...I'll be gone OCT 8-10th for the Packer game. I'll ask for another day of leave once you finalize plans on what days you'll be in DC. We just gotta brew! I wish we could have gotten together to watch the Packers at my house! But oh well....now I'm even more determined to brew or at least have a few beers. We can give your wife and daughter directions to the outlet mall in Williamsburg and then we can all drink. :D Once this gets closer I'll PM you my cell # and we can set something up. Remind me.....
We should talk Sam into having a party at his place...his kegerator has 2 taps.... ;)

Candi sugar? Many Belgians use it, but I've never seen a wit recipe that called for it. Candi is normally used in the bigger beers to add alcohol while keeping the body lighter.

We'll definitely have to try and put something together for your visit!

Yep, that was it. Thanks for the info. Nice selection and price at my LHBS. The help might not be as knowledgable as should be though I guess.

I know this is an old thread, however, I'm interested in making the Hoegaarden and was wondering if anybody made it according to the original poster's recipe/instructions? If so, how'd it turn out? Was it close to the Hoegaarden?

Any info on the OG and FG?

thanks,
dave

Has anyone brewed this with and without the oats and/or rice? I can't seem to place the oat or rice contribution in a witbier. Seems out of place to me.

I believe the small amount of oats is to add body and the rice hulls are to aid in sparging so you don't get a stuck sparge.

Used the Hoegaarden recipe on sunday, but was curious of this one should go into a secondary and how long i should let it ferment overall. I was thinking of doing 10 days primary and then another week in a secondary. too long? horribly too short? I'm still in the learning phase here. By the way, thanks for putting these recipes up!

None of the recipes seem right to me, I don't believe they are accurate to hoegaarden. Especially the cascade one..lol.
