My intent was to create a clone of Bell's oberon. I followed a recipe I found here:
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthre...t=51439&page=2, but had to alter it a bit.
Steeped 1 pound torrified wheat and 1 pound munich for 15 minutes. Temp ranged from 152-166. 2 pounds seemed a lot to steep to me, but I've only ever worked with kits before this
6.3 pounds wheat DME
1 oz perle 60 min
.5 oz saaz 15 min
.5 oz liberty 15 min (The original recipe called for Herzbrucker. My LHBS didn't have it, saw that Strisslespalt was a good replacement, but didn't have that, and saw that liberty was a good replacement for Strisslespalt, so gave me liberty.
.5 oz saaz 5 min
.5 oz liberty 5 min
yeast was safale-s-05
OG was smack around 1.050-1.052ish.
The hydro sample tasted disgustingly sweet and hoppier than I may have intended, but I'm sure a lot of the sweetness will ferment out.
Let me know what you think or if I left something out!
