To answer my own inquiry on this thread..

I made this recipe about a month ago. Turned out great. I was really looking for something with the residual sweetness of Lienenkugels (sp?) Honey Weiss.. This recipe is an excellent wheat beer. Mine didn't have the honey sweetness I was looking for, but in the recipe's defense, I used cheap honey from Kroeger which probably attributed to the lack of honey presence. I recommend using local honey from you LHBS or from a local vendor.

Excellent beer with a short turnaround time. The honey malt requires some time to mellow but a week in secondary or in a keg will knock that out.

Hope this helps someone!

I brewed this three weeks ago tomorrow, and still activity in the goose neck air lock! Thought about cold crashing mid week but now not sure if I should wait even longer...?

Just brewed a batch of the extract version of this. Couldn't find any glacier hops local so I used fuggles at 60 mins, fuggles and cascade 50/50 at 20 mins and cascade to finish.

Wish me luck, this is only my second brew!

So I just cracked one open for the first time last night and for some reason it tasted a little watered down. I hit all the target numbers (+ or - .001) volume was about right exactly 48 bottles... did I mash too low? any ideas?

I'd like to do this recipe today and have a question about the mash steps. Do I drain the mash tun before sparging? Thanks

Bumping this oldish thread. I'm curious if I could cut this recipe in half for a 3 gallon batch? Sounds really good, except I'm thinking blueberries in the secondary....

LHBS doesn't carry Glacier hops. On hand I have, tettnanger, Willamette, Kent Goldings, Northern brewer, Mt. Hood, and Columbus. Which would be best for a substitution? Thanks.
