The batch i brewed using the Canadian-Belgian yeast was excellent. It was served at a garden party to a group of 10 people and about half the keg was gone in a few hours. It is sessionable for me but some, who do not drink a lot of beer, said they felt the alcohol in it.

Fantastic, great to hear Ben - thank you for sharing your notes. How long did you wait before kegging? Sunday will be 2 weeks for me in the bucket, I'm thinking 3 before it goes in the keg (wheat tastes better young to me)

Thoughts?

Mines been in the secondary for a couple weeks now. Bout to throw that sucker in the keg. The gravity reading was perfect(my 2nd all grain batch) and it tasted absolutely delicious without carbonation. Can't wait to carb it.

Best of luck guys! I got this bottled up now, and will be trying one next weekend. I tasted the beer (less carbonation of course), and I was highly pleased. More to come next weekend.

I'm very excited to get to try this!

sorry i didn't reply earlier - i let it go for the full 3 weeks in primary and 3 weeks in the bottle. it sounds like you are just about ready to start drinking these

my experience with wheat beer is they carbonate and mature faster than other beers, but i think this yeast it has a bit of a bite when you drink em early. still tastes good though

Sorry to revive a catatonic thread but how has the beer turned out? I'm looking to brew a Franziskaner clone this weekend.

I'm still in the bucket, ackatack, or I'd fill you in - life won't let me get this beer into my keg. Hopefully soon. Everyone that has brewed it stated it's a delicious wheat, nobody has done a side side comparison yet with the Franz though (I will if I ever move the damn thing).

Officially in the keg. Blasting it at 30psi right now, hopefully I'll get to try a pint Friday. Yahoo!
