Please forgive me if this is a stupid question. I have two hefeweizen's I will be doing likely this weekend. They are both a bit different for experimentation purposes but both so far have 1lb Carahell for steeping in the recipe I made up. The question is this - all guidelines checkout perfectly fine in Beersmith, but Weyermann's website spec sheet for Carahell says "Up to 15% of total grain bill for lower-gravity beers". These beers are both almost 5% ABV and Beersmith shows the Carahell at about 15% of the grain bill. The estimated OG's of these two beers is 1.049.
Does 1lb sound ok? I've seen some recipes where Carahell was used and the amounts were typically 8oz so this is why I'm asking.
