Belgian Witbeir Brewing Tips

phyrefly44 | Apr 13, 200911:17 PM     8

Boyfriend likes to brew beer with the kits you can get at MoreBeer! or MoreFlavor! etc...
He's stuck with ales so far because he doesnt have any kind of specialty equipment aside from a large pot, carboy, and some tubing - and ales ferment at room temp.

I got him a belgian witbeir kit, and it includes all the ingredients, but does anyone have any tips for us on brewing? We've never brewed with wheat or oats before...

On that note, does anyone have tips on brewing lager? Is it possible without special equipment? How do you keep the fermentation temperature cold and constant?
