JOVARU™ Wit Recipe

The Jovaru™ Lithuanian Farmhouse strain provides notes of citrus and light acidity, so we thought it would fit well with a Belgian wit recipe. Adding some orange peel & cracked coriander in the kettle highlighted the light phenols of the strain, as well as a healthy dose of unmalted wheat to bump the perceived body. We pitched on the higher end of the temperature range at 90°F, and were able to package and drink within two weeks. The beer has a very light crackery malt backbone, finishing with a dry but soft mouthfeel.
