Default None-The-Weizen Redux

So after a horrible first PM we went all-grain.... The weizenbock i created tasted really odd and we think we either got Tannins or it got infected. Being the new brewers we are (only started in Jan.) we want to try a lot of different styles. However, I'm stubborn and don't want my only weizenbock to have sucked, so i'm redoing it, this time ALL GRAIN!

Let me know how this looks, i'm trying to go with the grainy flavor of the wheat, with the maltiness of munich and the toasty of vienna, with a slight hint of chocolate malt, and some Maris Otter.

We're doing Single Infusion batch sparging, i'd decoction mash it but i would rather see how it tastes before deciding that.

It looks good to me. Although with that much wheat, you might not need the Cara-pils. It won't hurt to add it, but the wheat will give it enough body and a good head all on it's own.

I just did a weizen and I let it sit in primary for two weeks. I never secondary them. They are the only beers that I don't secondary!

Good luck! Let us know how it turns out.

I'm also going to add some Rice Hulls to the mash to keep from getting stuck... Maybe i'll Nix the Carapils.

Rice hulls, OR since you like BIG beers, I added some 6-row, more hulls, plus you are adding gravity... grain for thought HA HA
