NotesRecipe, Exit 183 Wit, from Central Street Farmhouse. Recipe called for 5# of 2-row malt but the grain bill didn't match the weight of the grain. I arbitrarily added the weight in the 2-row malt though they could have been generous with any of the grains. I added 1/2# oats for greater mouthfeel and head, and added corriander to better match Alagash White profile. The fermentation profile is basically taken from"Brewing Classic Styles" but since the Wheat is malted, I am maching in at 140°F.
2015-12-12: Brew day with Chuck Kurtz. All went well. OG was firstname.lastname@example.org°F or 1.045.
2015-12-17: Racked to secondary. SG: email@example.com°F or 1.016. Taste: Maybe corriander. Maybe pepper. Subtle. Witbier. It will be ok. Racked using Glass carboy.
2015-12-22: SG: firstname.lastname@example.org or 1.014. We exceeded BeerSmith estimated FG but not CSF's estimate. Taste: Celina likes it! Spices there but not overpowering. Interesting that pepper is what I sense predominately, with the other spices flavors being less distinct. I think I could have reduced the IBUs even more, but it isn't at all unreasonable and carbanation might change ho the bitterness is persieved. Nice malt flavor.
Kegged in Keg #1. Blew off air via relief valve and pressurized to 30 PSI plus some good shaking.
2-15-12-28: Officially tapped today but it needs more carbonation. Also note that I am calling this "Exit 182A Witbier" after the exit we get off 95 to go home and as it is a devivative of the original recipe.
