Default Sam Adams Summer Ale

Anyone ever try to Clone this American Wheat Ale? This year's batch is very goodah, and I am thinking that a Home Brewed version would be even better.

Everytime I had this beer I couldn't drink it... It was either skunked or full of DMS.

I still have two in my fridge from two years ago.

Here's a clone from Austin HB.

Thanks Filter. Using your recipe as a Base, here's what I came up with using Beer Smith...

4.80 lbs. American 2 Row

4.80 lbs Dark Wheat

1.00 lb Flaked Wheat

.50 lb Cara Pils

1.05 ounces Hallertau (60 minutes)

1.00 ounce Saaz (5 mins)

1.00 ounce Lemon Zest (Boil 5 mins)

3 grams seeds of paradise (Boil 5 mins)

Wyeast 3944 Belgian Witbier


Now, my only questions would be just what the heck is Lemon Zest and Seeds of Paradise and
where might I aquire them?

Lemon zest is just the grated outside of a lemon, grains of paradise is available at most LHBS.

Here's the recipe I use...I've never done a sisde by side comparison, but it's really close IMHO...

6.00 lbs. Wheat Malt
2.00 lbs. Pale Malt(2-row)
1.00 oz. Tettnanger Tettnang 60 min.
1.00 oz. Tettnanger Tettnang 10 min.
1 oz lemon zest for 5 min in boil
1/2 tsp Grains of paradies for 5 min in boil


I got my Grains of Paradise (sometimes called Seeds of Paradise) from here


Edit: As I'm now thinking about brewing this soon and the way things are going with the hops shortage...Anyne know of a good sub for Tettnang that's widely available??
