How to Brew a Witbier

How to Brew a Witbier

By: Bill Ramsey | December 5, 2017 | in: Homebrewing

The Witbier is a Belgian style of beer that dates back 400 years. It’s a lighter style, generally around 5% ABV, with a lot of body due to the umalted wheat. Witbiers are often spiced with coriander and orange peel. The style nearly died out in the 1950’s, but was brought back to life when Pierre Celis, the brewmaster at Hoegaarden, started brewing it again. Since then, it’s had a huge resurgence with the craft beer movement. National brands like Blue Moon Belgian White have lead the way. There are also some other great examples of the style from smaller, local breweries like Ommegang Witte and Artisanal White in the Glasses Wit.
