Default Seeker's Hefeweizen Recipe found on Brewmasters Warehouse

here is the recipe in question: http://www.brewmasterswarehouse.com/recipe/ee201098/

Code:
Included Ingredients
Briess Bavarian Wheat Dry Extract	3 lbs, 0 oz
Briess Golden Light Dry Extract	2 lbs, 0 oz
Caramel Munich	0 lbs, 6 oz
Hallertau Pellets, German	1 oz @ 60 mins
SAFBREW WB-06 Wheat Beer	1 ea
it's going to be my very first brew I noticed after getting every thing home that I don't have instructions on how to brew this or how long it should be in primary before I keg it. I'm also kegging my first batch I don't want to deal with bottles.

EDIT: what tools I will be using
natural gas burner with 23-tip jet burner
converted Keggle
Counter Flow Chiller
Muslin/ Hop-grain bags

This is how I would do it, but it's certainly/probably not the only way, or the best, mind you.

Bring 1.5 gallons of water to 155F.
Cut heat and steep Caramel Munich for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, remove steeping grains, add additional water (amount depends on size of kettle) and bring water to boiling.
Once boiling, remove from heat and slowly add DME, making sure all of the clumps have been taken out and the mixture is thoroughly mixed.
Bring back to boil.
Once boiling, add your Hallertau and boil for 60 minutes.

After 60 minute boil, cut heat and cool wort to approximately 85F.

Once wort is cool, add to fermenter, along with any additional water, aerate and pitch.

Considering you're going with dry yeast, you'll need to hydrate it.

Boil 1/3-2/3 cup of water, cool it to around 90F, add yeast and allow to sit for 15 minutes before stirring it in (cover with plastic wrap to prevent contamination). Once it's mixed, you're ready to pitch.


As far as kegging it, I've had hefeweizens ready to keg after 2 weeks in primary. Check your specific gravity with a hydrometer to get a better idea of fermentation progress. You don't need to clear hefeweizens, so definitely no need for extended primaries or a secondary fermenter.

ok cool, I have edited first post with some of my equipment I have.

2 weeks seems about right for a Hefe from what I've been reading.

Hmmm, not much of a hefe IMHO...too little wheat (65/35) @ 3lb. But this should make you very good beer similar to hefe (let's call it an American hefe). What are you looking for in your hefe?


D's suggestions look good.

two week fermentation should be good.

Fermentation temp around 66-68 for a moderate flavor. NOTE: fermentation temp will significantly change the flavor profile of your hefe.

Boil full wort volume with your keggle...cool fast to 66-70 and pitch yeast.

A suggestion: split the hops boil 60 min for 0.5 oz, and add 0.5 oz 30 minutes into the boil...hefe is all about the yeast and wheat...minimal hops (IMHO)

Another suggestion: keep 1lb of the bavarian wheat malt back for addition at 40 minutes into the boil. what I mean is to boil 2 lb golden light and 2 lb bavarian wheat for full 60 minutes, but only add the final 1lb of Bavarian wheat with 20 minutes left in your boil.

Congratulations on an excellent choice for your first beer...not many things on Earth better than hefe.

Good luck!!

I picked this beer because my wife likes wheat beers, and I wanted to brew some thing she can enjoy first.

im excited I can't wait, now I just need to get some tubing to attach my keggle to my CFC and go at it I guess.

Good luck, man!

I hope everything goes well with the first brew, and I hope your wife digs it!

Just follow the instructions, and don't stress out too much. This is supposed to be fun!

just want to make sure that adding another 5 gallons of water is going to be alright. I have searched and the consensus is that roughly 1.5 gallons of boil off in an hours time

after reading this thread I think the two week primary I was planning might not be the best thing for my beer.
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f163/sec...-weigh-176837/

any input on how long to leave in primary before transferring to the keg.

Jason,

I did not read the entire thread link you posted...just the first few lines that suggested it involved "to secondary, or not to secondary". Ar eyou trying to make the decision regarding whether to transfer to a secondary or not? Or, how long to leave in the primary? Both?

Cheers,
PikledBill
