Dunkelweizen

Description: I ended up repitching the yeast from a previous batch (Room-mates bavarian weizen, D&M Brockington) and the yeast didn’t create the banana & clove taste, but the aroma was right on. I think the yeast had just been used too many times. The beer scored a 37 and NHC and a 30 at Heart of the Valley. The NHC ...

Dunkelweizen 2

Description: I just made a dunkelweizen this weekend. I would say, from reading Warner’s book, that the best way to add color is with dark munich malt. I don’t think (from memory) that he used crystal or chocolate malt in any of his recipes. Since I could not find any dark munich malt, however, I “cheated” with crystal and chocolate ...

Improvisational Wheat

Description: This turned out to be probably the best beer I’ve ever made. I made an 11 gallon batch so I could add raspberries to half of it for a raspberry wheat and have the other half as an American wheat. I was amazed at how well both came out and plan to do another batch when it cools off ...

Cat Claw Wheat

Description: Here’s a recipe for a wheat beer I brewed recently. It has a golden orange color and a nice tang to it. Enjoy. 1. I’m finding more and more uses for Cascades! 2. It’s called “cat claw” wheat because of an incident that occurred while brewing. Both the cat and dog (65#shepard) are allowed to watch the brewing process ...

Bavarian Wheat

Description: Target starting gravity is in the range of 1.050-1.055, so adjust the above grain bill. For a dunkelweizen, substitute a couple pounds of Munich malt for some of the pale malt, and substitute crystal malt for the cara-pils. Cracking the wheat malt correctly takes some practice. I set the Corona mill more finely than for barley malt. The idea ...

Australian RedBack

Ingredients: 7–3/4 pounds, mix of 66% malted wheat extract and 33% barley Procedure: My primary ferment started in 1 hour and was surprisingly vigorous for 36 hours. It finished in 48 hours. It has been fermenting slowly for 5 days and now has stopped blowing CO2 through the ...

Anglo-American Wheat Beer

Description: I twisted the American Wheat Beer style just slightly and came up with a very tasty beer. The resulting beer has the floral nose that is one of the chief characteristics of the #1968 yeast. Indeed, with the low hopping in a wheat beer, the yeast nose comes through very clearly. I would perhaps add a bit more late-addition ...
