Sage Lime Wit Beer

July Club Shop Brew Belgian Witbier with Matt & Andy On Sunday July 31st, just in time to still call it July, Matt Myerhoff and Andy Ziskin let a shop brew-crew in brewing a Belgian Witbier with a little bit of a twist. In looking at Jamil's Brewing Classic Styles we noticed he preferred using fresh orange zest and chamomile tea in his recipe. To give our beer a little more unique character we decided to use fresh lime zest, leaves and sage mostly from Andy's garden. We had an excellent brew crew, thank you to Jay, Susie, Scot, Justin, Jeremy and Cullen. To pass time during the mash, Matt brought a projector and we watched a few beer related videos in the comfort of the air conditioned club house. Of course, there was plenty of really great Homebrew shared by all. We may have over sparged just a bit and missed our OG by a few points, but a great day was had by all. A very special thanks to Alex from Westlake Brewing for donating a huge pitch of yeast for our Brewers! Look for the beer to make an appearance at the September club meeting and the Oktoberfest party. Recipe for 40G Estimated OG was 1.051 / Actual OG 1.044
