Jim -- Wit Wedding Bells

Postby Push Eject » Thu Mar 20, 2003 8:41 am

Hey, Jim

Looking for a wit beer recipe for a friend's wedding in two months (we're making the bride brew it per tradition).

Saw your recipe. Flour? Really? Why?

Would you recommend the recipe for a cross-section of beer drinkers or would it scare off all but the adventuresome?

If you've tried it, does it scale well to 10gal?

Looking forward to it!

Hey Charlie,

I love the tradition of the Bride's Ale! We had to settle for Guinness and Sam Adams at our wedding because I didn't have time to brew up 10-20 gallons. It's the only thing I really regret not doing because we did everything else

I found Jims wit to be very good. I think it would be "mild" enough for those not indoctrinated into the ways of really good beer. For that matter, I liked it much better than mine!!!!

After two weeks of clearing the beer was great. I spiced the heck out of mine (beertools wit in recipe library) and thought it was my best beer. I still think that today! zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Steve(the sleepy, but happy dad).Rock on Grav, I'll be back soon after two weeks in the basement.
