It's very similar to mine as well, though I use (for 12 gal): 3 oz. of fresh orange peel (actually, if you can get some different oranges, a mix of tangerine, navel, mandarin and tangelo works very nicely and gives it a bit of depth. Additionally, I'll add about 2g of chamomile at 5 min.
As it warms up, the chamomile comes out and changes the character of the drink. so far, i've had nothing but compliments for the recipe.

My house beer is wit. Starting brewing in the summer, but now brew it year round. I use cheap 2-row instead of pilsner malt. I also bump the alcohol up 5.8% or so. I do use chamomile and a little less coriander. I also started using imported bitter orange marmalade instead of orange peel. It adds a little sugar, but so much easier and fresher tasting than peel. I always do the 122 F protein rest, you ever try without it?

Hey Kal, I have been reading so much conflicting information on this, as 50% of people say you don't need a protein rest with Flake Wheat( which is just rolled terrified wheat) as it is pre-gelatinized. But then others say you need it as it is still a prime candidate for the benefits of a protein rest. Can you clarify this for us? Thanks

Thanks Kal. What I will do then is keg straight from the primary - I didn't bother to use a secondary. Been at 1.011 for 4 days now, so ready I think. _________________ "And the only time I feel alright is when I'm into drinking. It sort of eases the pain of it and levels out my thinking".
