Default Peach Wheat

This is my first recipe post. The beer is not quite ready but has come along very nicely.


Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: WLP 300 hefe yeast
Yeast Starter: Yes
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: No
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5
Original Gravity: 1.045
Final Gravity: 1.010
IBU: 12
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 5 SRM
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21 days
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7 days

5lb Belgain 2-row pale
4lb German Wheat
1.5lb flaked Wheat

.75oz Hersbrucker 60 minutes
.25 oz Hersbrucker 20 minutes

Step infusion 20 minutes at 104 degrees, 40 minutes 140 degrees, 60 minutes 158.

After three weeks, take 5lb frozen peaches and heat with two cups of water to 160 degrees and let sit for 20 minutes. After peaches have cooked bring them back down to room temp and add to carboy. Rack beer on top of peaches. Let sit an additional week then keg or bottle. Two weeks minimum for peach flavor to mellow out.

That sounds like it'll be very tasty. If I lived closer, I'd beg an invite.

Being from St. Louis, are you trying to clone O'Fallon Wheach?

Yes and no. I made this beer for my sister in law who first tried a peach beer at the beer festival in June or whenever it was. I dont know if the one she tried was the Wheach or not, but I assume it was. So, I guess in a roundabout way, the Wheach was the inspiration for this beer, but I have no idea what kind of grainbill, yeast or peaches are used in their beer. So I cant say that it is necessarily a clone.

For future reference, O'Fallon uses the Kolsch yeast for all of their beers. I also think they use an extract for the flavor.

cool, thanks for that info. The folks at O'fallon are really cool. I keg now, but when I was bottling, they sold me a bunch of bottles at cost. Even gave me a mini tour of their operation while I was there. Very nice and cool folks.

I brewed a raspberry wheat last year and used 2 lbs of raspberries and that was PLENTY... 5 lbs sounds like alot... then again, I have never used peaches, but that is ALOT of fruit for 5 gallons

Well, according to Ray Daniels in Designing Great Beers peaches are mild while other fruit, like raspberries and blueberries are not. He actually suggested around 7 lbs of peaches for a peach flavored beer. I used 5 because I knew that 7 was going to be too 'peachy' for me. And I would probably not use 5 again, but I wouldn't go as low at 2, you probably would hardly taste them. I think 4 is probably just right for a peach beer. Also, while mentioning that, this beer has only been in keg for 10 days, so the peach will likely mellow out over the coming weeks and 5 is probably going to end up being just about perfect.
