I made a 10 gallon batch if this several months ago. I split it into 2 fermenters and used notty in one and US05 in the other. The notty fermented out much quicker and I kegged both with gelatin. They are both extremely clear. The US05 batch definately tastes better and cleaner. I wouldn't do it again with with the notty, it has an after taste that I don't care for much. I'm letting that keg age a few months to see if it gets better. When I do this one again I'm going to bump up the corn a little more and try US05 again and maybe some type of good liquid yeast.

I am making a 5.5 gal batch of this on saturday and I have a few questions:

#1 Says to mash at 152. Is this a simple batch sparge with no mash out?

#2 I haven't done a mash yet with rice but I have used it in a partial mash once and I noticed the rice absorbs a lot of the water. How much additional water should I add to the mash to compensate for water absorption? I typically go with a 1.25qt/lb ratio


#3 My LHBS doesn't have Crystal hops so I was thinking of substituting with Hallertau or Perle. Thoughts?


I am really eager to make this! The last recipe I made of yours was superb.

Right...simple sparge.

There really isn't enough rice to impact your water volumes. I'm not much of an exact science guy when it comes to water. I mash to the right consitency and sparge with enough water to rinse all the sugars.

I think that Perle might be a bit cleaner than Hall...but since there is such a small amount and it's a full 60-minute boil...it really won't make a difference.

Excellent thanks.

I went with Mt. Hood as a replacement for Crystal.

Looking forward to this!

Default All Graining This Recipe As We Speak


Hello All,

Just had a new baby boy and decided to take up homebrewing as my new hobby. I have brewed a few batches using extract so far.

I am trying this one as my 1st all grain batch. Looking forward to trying it out.

I figured I stay up to 3am every night b/c of the new baby so I started my batch at 10pm. Slated to finish at 3:15am. Looks like I can brew at anytime without SWMBO being mad. As a matter of fact she is thrilled that I am staying up with the baby and I am thrilled that I get to brew beer.

Just finished brewing up 11.5 gallons of this stuff!

Brewed it to the letter (30% adjunct, 70% 2-row). No rice hulls needed on my HERMS setup. I've been able to brew 70% wheat beers without any recirculation or stuck sparge issues.

My water's very soft (good for this style). I added some CaCl2 to balance the Cl with the S04.

Was targetting 1.040/65F into the fermenters. Got 1.041/65F. Close enough!
Pitched the hydrated US-05. It's fermenting now at 66F.

Anyone experimented with this recipe and a kolsch yeast? I harvested quite a bit of Wyeast Kolsch II this past summer and need to start using it up.

Kolsch is a great yeast for this beer. Very clean fermentation. Keep it on the cooler side and once the fermentation appears complete, try to set the fermenter into a lagering environment (55-60 degrees) for a week or two.
