I have some ingrediants I want to use up and plan on brewing a wheat beer from extract. Here is what I have on hand and plan to use:
6.6 lbs (2cans) Briess unhopped wheat LME
1 lb honey
1 lb light brown sugar (optional)
1 lb Briess baviaran wheat DME
2 oz hallertau hops alpha 3%
11gr pack of dry Safale us-05
7gr pack dry coopers brewing yeast.
Plan to boil the extracts, honey, and brown sugar for 45-60 minutes.
1 oz hops 60 min
1 oz hops 15 minutes.
Not sure which yeast to use, doubt it will make any difference.
I do a 3 gallon boil and use bottled spring water to make the difference to 5.5 gal.
I will ferment in primary for 5-7 days then transfer to secondary for another 7 days.
I am concerned that i may not have enough hops but there is not much I can do about that til next week.
I wanted this to have a little more body and maybe more alc than the kits offer. Any ideas or suggestions?
