What time of yeast are you using? Sounds like a good dunkelweisen recipe if you're using heffeweisen yeast.

I'd use more than a pound of smoked malt, myself. Maybe not quite haf the grain bill, but a good 35% - 40%. But, I like smoked beers!

Remember, rauchbiers are 100% smoked malt, so don't be too afraid of the smoke.

I'd do a single hop addition, too; this beer is about the wheat, the yeast, and the smoke - not the hops.

1 ounce at 60 would do fine for a hefeweizen. you want a tiny bitterness to balance but don't want the flavor or aroma to overpower all those wonderful goodies your wheat yeast will impart

Okay, so I'm going to do one of these soon...and I'm trying to figure a recipe.

I'm trying to decide which malt to smoke, the wheat or the base 2-row. To me, it makes sense to smoke the wheat, seeing the beer is going to be a smoked wheat. However, I doubt it will make much difference in the long run.

So I'm thinking a grain bill of 50/50 wheat and 2-row, with 50% of the grist home smoked in my cold smoker contraption. I'll also be using the American Wheat strain, as I'm not a huge fan of German weizen strains.

Would you guys add any crystal or adjuncts to this grist?

It might not be a bad idea to add a little crystal to balance the smoke a bit, but there is already going to be lots going on in this beer. What are you thinking for IBUs?

So some crystal 20 perhaps?

Low IBUs...like 20-25. Does that sound okay?

The recipe that is in the Classic Beer Style Series "Smoked Beers" book is this:

1.052 OG
17 IBU

6.3 lbs Wheat malt
3.0 lbs Smoked Malt

.85 oz Hersbrucker (4.0% aa)

Weizen Yeast

Mash temp: 152°


I am doing one of these soon--I probably won't stray too far from the basis of this--but I plan on using 50% smoked malt and probably a fairly low alpha acid American hop with the American Wheat strain.
