Just browsing and came across your beer, love the ingredients! I have a few bee hives so naturally I will be leaning towards honey based beers in the near future. I am new to the home brewing culture (just recieved my first kit this Christmas) and would love some insight/hand holding on the proceedures involved and the best H2O to use. Philip in Canton, GA...Thanks!

While I think everyone that home brews beer tinkers, this is as close to perfect as I've got with a recipe. great standard wit that has a layered coriander and orange peel flavoring with a crispness that only comes from a high alcohol and highly carbonated beer.
