This actually kinda resembles a Tripel. Pretty damn tasty! Please try brewing it and tell us about your results!

Any treatment on the lemon grass? Peel away the tough stuff and crush the tender stuff or just chuck it whole?

ryang:
Seems like an awful lot of lemongrass... I've not used fresh though, just dried, so I'm unfamiliar to a certain extent.  It doesn't seem like there's that large of a difference though.  I've used a matter of teaspoons dried...

kraftwerk:
No treatment on the lemongrass. Just cut it up and throw it in. It seems like a lot but the stuff I got only imparts a subtle lemony freshness. All my samples have been pretty outstanding.

3 months into ferm and still waiting for the gravity to level off. It's been hovering at 1.004 for a month now.

Does anyone know if White Labs 670 drops all the way down to 1.000? This is my first time using it.

Just did a lemongrass wit.  Tip from Local Brewpub who has done firkins of lemongrass ales.  Cut into chunks, soak in everclear to release oils, put in boil kettle at flameout.
