Hoegaarden Clone (Witbier No. IV)

This witbier actually went a tad awry. The main batch accidentally got bottled a bit before it was fully attenuated (ended at 1.016) which created bottle bombs, and on top of it, it’s pretty obvious that there was some kind of lacto infection that did not add complexity in a decent way. There was another small fermenter with 4 L that were dry-hopped with Columbus (I believe) that somehow avoided the infection. But, Columbus hops aren’t exactly the best for dry hopping a wit, so oh well. Not a particularly successful brew.
