I just picked up a Midwest Supplies "Golden Wheat Beer" 20 minute boil kit.
The recipie seems pretty straight forward as far as ingredients:
Fermentables- 4lbs Munton's Wheat hopped LME, 2 lbs. Wheat DME
Hops- 1 oz Tettnang
priming sugar, and dry yeast... The kit says purchase 2lbs clover honey to make it a "honey wheat" or buy 4 oz. fruit extract for a cherry wheat.
Well long story short I wanted to step my game up a little and think outside the box and make this more my own.... I am not at the level of all grain yet
I have however done a partial mash before... But for this one I thought why not tweak a recipie and add some of my own ideas to it.... So here it is.... I will follow the 20 minute boil how the directions say to it... But I want to add:
-Dark Brown Sugar
In hopes to turn this beer into a "Cider Brown Wheat Beer" lol....
As for the brown sugar I got a 2 lb. bag of dark brown sugar and a 64 oz container of apple cider....
I guess my 2 questions are when should I add the brown sugar and the apple cider? My guess is do the brown sugar during the boil... but am unsure when to add the cider, should I wait till secondary to add that? Lastly is 64 oz too much cider? same goes for the brown sugar will I need the entire 2 lb. bag? Thanks guys!
