This is stolen from The Complete Joy of Home Brewing
by Charlie Papazian. It's a darker brew because of the grains used.Phat Fired Weizenbock
1 lb crystal malt
1/4 lb chocolate malt
1/4 lb caraffe malt (debittered black malt)
3.3 lbs light extract syrup
3.3 lbs wheat extract syrup
1.5 lbs amber dry extract
1.5 oz spalt hops for 60 minutes
1 oz santiam hops for 5 minutes
1 oz santiam hops for 2 minutes
German Wheat yeast
- this is a 5 gallon batch recipe
. multiply everything by 0.8 to cut it down to 4 gallon.... or... just use it as is to make a strong 4 gallon batch.
- mount hood or american tettnanger hops can be substituted for santiam
