Hey all, new around here, been brewing on and off for about 8 years but lately have got into it enough to commit to AG, so in a few weeks (when I get back home) I'm going to dive in. I've got all the ingredients in the basement for a Dunkelweizen since Ive been going crazy with hefes lately.
Now Ive probably done 35 or 40 batches before but I am a bit leery of mashing wheat on the first go around since Ive read of the sticky mashes and stuck wort and messes.
What if I just did this...
10# Vienna, mashed at 158 for decent body
Cascade, at the following schedule
.5 oz 60 min
.5 oz 30 min
.5 oz 15 min
.5 oz 2 min
WLP001 California Ale
Tasty brew says these are the specs...
ABV 5.3 %
What would you call this anyway, sort of a pale ale?
I thought it looked easy and fun, and I could work on my technique before worrying about protein rests with the wheat mash.
