Default Hoppy Wheat Beer?

Can it be done with pleasing results? Any recipes?

Check out Southern Tiers Hop Sun for a great commercial example. If I ever get around to cloning it, I'll PM you with the recipe.

hmmm. Unfortunately that isn't available in GA. Although I'd love to try it.

Here is the info on Southern Tier's Hop Sun:


I am a fan, and brew an all columbus interpretation of it that I simply refer to as Hoppy Wheat.

My recipe has looked pretty similar to this the last few times I've brewed it:

7 lbs. German 2-row Pils
3 lbs. White Wheat Malt
8 oz. Crystal Malt 10°L
.25 oz. Columbus (Pellets, 14.2 %AA) boiled 60 min.
.75 oz. Columbus (Pellets, 14.2 %AA) boiled 15 min.
1 oz. Columbus (Pellets, 14.2 %AA) boiled 5 min.
Yeast : DCL Yeast Safale US-05

The main differences being a few extra gravity points on my end, I do not dry hop it (mostly out of laziness), and of course columbus in place of centennial.

ETA: One of my early stabs out it came out like this:

I over hopped a Rye Wheat by accident once and it was GREAT

The brooklyner-schneider hopfen-weisse is really good. They list the ingredients at the brooklyn brewery website if you wanted to formulate the recipe yourself.

I made an American Wheat last year with a bucketload of Sorachi Ace.

Make you wanna slap yo' mama!

Three Floyds Gumballhead is another commercial example for you to investigate.

I made a fairly hoppy wheat beer as an experiment and it ended up quite good.

5 lb pale 2-row
3 lb malted wheat
1.5 lb vienna
.5 light crystal

Set it up with S-05 and a cool ferment...
1oz of 11.5% centennial at 60, 0.5oz saaz at 15 and flamout.

Honestly, the finish was a bit too bitter, but the foam tasted AWESOME.. like bitter, delicious candy. Could probably balance the beer by taking some hops off the start and adding them in the middle.

I just made a 1 gallon test batch of NB's T-can wheat beer, which is a hoppy wheat beer. I liked it a lot and plan on making a full batch this summer. Recipe is here:
