Default Wheat Stout

Hey All,

A new home brew shop has opened up locally and he has aspirations to be known as the best store for malts in the area: win for me!!!

Looking through the malts he has on the shelves, I noticed a load of different kilned wheat.

1. Red Wheat: http://www.brewingwithbriess.com/Products/Wheat.htm#Red
2. Caracrystal: http://www.brewingwithbriess.com/Products/SeasonalMalts.htm#Jan
3. Midnight: http://www.brewingwithbriess.com/Products/Bitterless.htm#Midnight
4. Chocolate: http://www.midwestsupplies.com/chocolate-wheat-weyermannr.html
5. Roasted: http://www.rebelbrewer.com/shoppingcart/products/Fawcett-Roasted-Wheat-Malt-%28by-the-ounce%29.html

Of course there is regular white wheat as well.

I am contemplating doing an all wheat stout if people either have or have good thoughts on the idea. I just don't know what an all wheat stout might turn out to be like. If it seems like I get good feedback, going to put together a recipe, but what type of stout?

Then, of course, I take it further: what other styles could possibly fit underneath this trial of 100% wheat beer yet to a "style."

Looking forward to some thoughts.

Cheers,
Scot

I think an all wheat stout is very ineresting. But maybe thats like a super bold dunkel. A wheat saison maybe?

Northern brewer has a wheat porter you may want to consult for some ingredients.

I was going to suggest the same thing, I've made this kit and it's fantastic. It's called Midnight Beatdown Wheaten Porter, or something like that.

Was the beer 100% wheat? How different was it from a "regular" porter?

If a porter is good and possible, I assume a stout should be as well.

I would think the same thing!

The porter isn't 100% wheat, it's a partial mash kit that includes wheat LME and some 2-row in the mash.

If you don't already have a recipe for a wheat stout search around for schwarzweizen and you should come across some. Maybe there's a T in there somewhere. My German isn't very good.

If you have the ability to ferment warm, Wy3724.

That I do have. I can easily get in the 80s. I have used WLP566 in the past and ramped up to 84F.
