So I have done two batches of pure extract batches and want to move on to doing one steeping with specialty grains and then go forward from there. I want to do an american wheat, what would be a good specialty grain to steep with a wheat and pale extract?
That's a style that often doesn't include any specialty malts - I typically don't use any. A little of a lighter crystal would be okay though, like crystal 10 or caravienne. I would keep it to 5% or about 1/2 lb per 5 gallons. You could also try a little honey malt although I would go easy with it. I don't have experience with it but sounds like it's easy to over do it.
Ok thanks! Yea i just want to do something so i can try it. What's a better one to do it with?
porter or stout. any dark beer is going to be better if you have steeping grains instead of just extract. You could do a dunkelweizen, which is a dark wheat beer, if you want to do a wheat beer with some steeping grains.
