Ok, so I recently finished my first two batches and I am wondering what you all think about the recipes. First let me say althought i probably should have used a recipe kit to start with, I came up with my own recipes after some moderate research, and would like some input before I start my next batch in a couple days. Obviously I should have asked this question prior to brewing.
Batch #1 Honey Weizen
1 lbs Cara wheat (steeped)
6 lbs Wheat Malt extract Syrup
1 lbs Honey late Addition (15 Min)
1 oz Hallertau hops, .5 60 min, .5 15 min
Wyeast 3056 Bavarian Wheat Blend
i brewed this for a friend whom sent a lot of time in Germany and has a German wife. He likes wheat beers, but is not a fan of hoppy ones.
Batch #2 Basically an American Amber
1lb British Carastan (steeped)
.5lb American Crystal 70L (steeped)
6 lbs Amber Malt extract syrup
1 lb Light DME late addition (15 Min)
.5 oz Brewer's Gold 9 % AA 60 min
1 oz East Kent Goldings 5.5% AA 10 min
Wyeast 1882 Thames Valley II
This one was for me!
So let me know what you think, but please remember these are my first two batches.
