Default All-Grain - Lemonparty (Citrus Blonde)

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Wyeast 1056 (any clean yeast will do)
Yeast Starter: If you want.
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.25
Original Gravity: 1.050
Final Gravity: 1.010
IBU: 28
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 4
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21 @ 65
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): Nah
Tasting Notes: A crisp kind-of wheat with a lot of citrus tones, especially from Sorachi Ace hops.

This is my house summer beer, I've modified it since the first time I made it but it's been a crowd pleaser. I originally made it with Citra hops but I've grown not to like them as much, and moved to Amarillo. However, the Sorachi Ace is the real star of the show, with it's lemony character that many casual beer drinkers have not encountered yet, and are shocked by. Despite being only around an ounce of it, it is still extremely present. It's a simple grain bill, the only hard part is the citrus additions (still not hard, obviously).

You may use 100% flaked wheat if you would like, I went with 50/50 flaked/malted wheat to keep the lauter simple.

-----------------------
Batch Size: 5.25
Boil Size: 6.50
Estimated OG: 1.050 SG
Estimated Color: 4 SRM
Estimated IBU: 28
Brewhouse Efficiency: 75.0 %
Boil Time: 60 Minutes
Mash: Single-Step Infusion Mash, Batch Sparge, 150F for 60 mins. I went lower temp for a crisper, refreshing beer.

--------

2.00 lb Malted Wheat (4 SRM) (I use Great Western White Wheat Malt)

0.50 oz Amarillo [11.0%] (5 Min)
0.50 oz Sorachi Ace [10.1%] (5 Min)

It was not the original name, but I have a lot of sick internet-savvy friends who named it this after trying it and it just stuck.

Sure gets the attention of people

I used 1272 (American Ale II) and 1056 (American Ale) the last couple times, as my goal with it was a cleaner beer rather than a wheat beer. I've had a couple people say they were going to make it with a wheat yeast, which would probably be good as well. I would guess something like American Hef would be a better fit.

I would love to see a picture of the end product if you get time. Sounds interesting.

Would also love a tasting review.

I don't know how many pics of the finished product I took, mostly it was just drank heavily. I'll look around - just picture yellow, with a big head because of the wheat

As for a tasting review, here are my notes from the first batch, yoinked and cut/pasted from my homebrewnotes.doc -

"Wow! It's cleared out well, I can see clearly through it, even with the wheat. It smells like kind of a funky lemon...doesn't have much "hop" to it, but the citrus definitely comes through - probably used right amount of fresh zest?
Taste is...yeah, awesome! Dominated by those Sorachi Ace, kind of a lemony and musty blast. Just a lot of citrus in general.
Not bitter, pretty smooth but with a bit of carbonic bite - maybe overcarbonated? Refreshing but not TOO thin.
Time to make this again."
