Great. Get yourself some German hops and you should have an outstanding brew.

Instead of the 6.8% for 30mins you could use 3.4 for 1 hour. It's the same. Or use 2 oz of the 3.4% for 30 mins. The choice is yours.

Who did you buy the kit from, seems like they might have given you the wronf hops by mistake.

I have a recipe that needs to be converted. I thought I would run it by the experts. . .

3lbs pilsner malt
1 lb vienna malt
1lb white wheat malt
3-3.5 lb DME (enough to get to 1.046 OG) Added with 15 minutes remaining.

1 oz Tettanger bittering (60 min)
.5 Spalt flavoring (30 min)
.5 Saaz flavoring (30 min)

I am looking for about 26-28 IBU.

I may add some hops for aroma, but that won't change right?

Thanks.

I would use hallertau 3/4 oz bittering, 1/4 oz aroma. Drop the bittering down a bit if you are adding extract late.

I will probably do
.75 Tettanger bitering
1/3 saaz flavoring
1/3 spalt flavoring

.25 or so of spalt and saaz for aroma

Well, there were a lot of proponents and opponents to the late addition extract method. Yesterday i brewed and went with the full 60 minutes. I'm brewing a brewers best continental pilsner. Beersmith put it at about 17 srm, and what is in the fermenter looks almost exactly like yoohoo.

It's a 5 gallon batch with 2 lb of light DME and a 3.3lb can of coopers light LME. For next time, should i have added the DME at 60 minutes and the LME in the last 15? I don't know why, but my SG was 1.036 at 68 degrees. It's supposed to be between 1.044 and 1.048.

Well, I basically abandoned extract when I did a couple of AG's. The flavor was fantastic compared to previous extract batches I'd done before. For the hell of it I tried a late extract with steeping grains Paulaner-like hefewiezen.

I'm sorry to report that I still noticed a tinge of extract tang in the hefe. It's a decent drinkable beer but just not ringing my bell like the AG's.

Who knows. So many variables.
