Really looking forward to these beers!
that sounds good! looking forward to hearing how it turns out.
side note: I was reading in "Designing Great Beers" that one of the traditional methods for Berliner Weisse was to do a multi-step decoction without ever going to a full wort boil
. Since that seemed way out of my league...and based upon some other research...I decided to go with a 15 minute boil. According to "Designing Great Beers" the lactic acid really shines through with unboiled wort.
Obviously many different ways to get to a great tasting Berliner Weisse so I'm intrigued to hear how it goes for all of us.
