Can't help oyu guys out right now (at work) but if you search the homebrew recipe sites, just go for a generic "american wheat" recipe and it will get you darn close. Make sure to use the american wheat yeast strain, which will cut down on the banany phenols and make it a cleaner flavor.

I'm pretty familiar with Boulevard wheat and it is as american as it gets.

When I get home I'll search the Boulevard site to see fi they give any clues. It will be easy to formulate a recipe pretty close if they give a little info about it.

Using those specs/ingredients (and a little extra research), here is what I came up with.

Note: I read an article in BYO from the head brewer at Boulevard who said they use unmalted wheat--but he doesn't recommend that homebrewers do that. He said any soft malted wheat would work. He also suggests using the chico strain. Phooey, I say. That WLP320 is awesome.

Okay I'm sure this is a stupid question but in looking at this for an extract,

"For extract brewers, sub in 4.0 lbs. light DME, 1.5 lbs wheat LME/DME, and steep 1 lb. flaked wheat with some DME at 150°ish for about 15-30 mins."

I get the steeping, but what does "some DME" mean? Do you just steep a little bit (.5 lb??) of the wheat DME in with the flaked wheat?

Thanks for any help, I wanted to try this for my next batch, but wanted to make sure I understood it first!

ISUBrew79, why would you put whirlfloc in a wheat beer?

Bully Wheat isn't filtered.
