Default Hefewiesen, I hope...

I brewed up another batch today. It was supposed to be a Hefewiesen like Wienstephan.

The previous batch is still in the primary, I'll rack to bottles sometime soon.

Here's the Brew Smith:

Recipe: Beer2
Brewer: Brewby, my beer
Asst Brewer:
Style: Hefewiesen
TYPE: Extract

Recipe Specifications
--------------------------
Batch Size: 5.00 gal
Boil Size: 3.00 gal
Estimated OG: 1.047 SG
Actual OG: 1.043 SG
Estimated Color: 8.8 SRM
Estimated IBU: 10.9 IBU
Boil Time: 60 Minutes

Ingredients:
------------
Amount Item Type % or IBU
6.60 lb Wheat Liquid Extract (10.0 SRM) Extract 100.0 %
0.75 oz Hallertauer [3.20%] (60 min) Hops 6.4 IBU
0.69 oz Hallertauer [3.20%] (30 min) Hops 4.5 IBU
1 Pkgs Weihenstephan Weizen (Wyeast Labs #3068) Yeast-Wheat


It went into the primary at about 12:30-1:00pm. At 9pm when I got home, there was plenty of airlock activity and lots of froth in the carboy.

I tried to follow the procedures that I set up in the previous post and it all worked out, for the most part.

I used the turkey cooker. I had one small boil over. It took me a little while to get use to cooking with the turkey cooker but I think I've worked it out now. I was follow in a recipe but I messed up when figuring out the hops. The recipe called for .75oz of hallertauer hops. I put this in at the start of the boil. Then I was reading another post which suggested not thinking about the volume of the hops but the AAU's. When I did this I found with the 3.2% of the hops I didn't put enough in. I decided to make up for it by putting more in, but I waited until 30min into the boil.

I didn't follow the recipe correctly regarding the hops, so I'm not sure how it's going to come out. I think it will be fine, I'm just wondering if it will come out like a Wienstephan hefe or not.

When I do the math, I get:

IBU'S

((.75oz hops x 3.2%) x .3) + ((.69oz hops x 3.2%) x .21) = 1.183 isomerized AAU's

(1.183 / 5gal) = .2366 iaa per gal.

.2366 x .01335 = 17.72 IUB'S


Starting Gravity

((6.6lb LME x 34dpp) / 5gal) = 44.88 or 1.044 OG
The actual OG that I took was about 1.043



I hope my adding the extra hops at 30min didn't change the style too much.

Looks like a good recipe...once it gets ready to drink in a month or so I'd be curious to hear about your hop profile. A lot of people hop their hefe's with one 60m addition for the 10-15 IBU's, so yours will be a little different than that. Hope you get some warm weather up there to enjoy it with!

Just a suggestion...I'd cut that second hop addition back to .68 oz. I'm afraid that extra .01 oz. might put you over the top.

LOL...

Yeah, just round that up to .75. Your tastebuds won't know the diff.
