Default Extract - Kiwi Wheat ale

Recipe Type: Extract
Yeast: Munich
Yeast Starter: Wheat malt. Corn sugar 1 pint
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.032
Final Gravity: 1.007
IBU: UNK
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: Amber
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 12 @ 64 degrees
Additional Fermentation: Bottle fermented 1 month at 64 Degrees
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 20 days @ 64 Degrees then a 2 day rest at 70 degrees.
Tasting Notes: Malty with just a hint of honey

So this beer is delicious and a great one at that.

I do not normally do all malt recipies but I was feeling a little like what the hell, I have 2 hours to kill while bottling another one, Why Not?

So the recipe is as follows

3 Lbs Light DME
3 Lbs Wheat/ Barley LME
boil for 60 minutes
Kill heat
Add
1 Lbs Honey (local stuff for me)
Add
1 Oz Hops to bag
Green Bullet
Pacific Gem
Super Alpha
3 Oz total then boil for 5 minutes with hops and kill heat again
Rapid cooled and then added yeast and let it go

12 days in primary, I like my beer to really rest and be ready
20 days in secondary to rest some more, I always give beers with honey more time to let the yeast ferment the honey.
1 month in bottle to be delicious
very light beer with a beautiful bold but floral hop profile, no bitterness noted on the beer just bold hoppy flavor with a hint of sweetness on the back of the tounge.

Enjoy and Cheers.

FYI the beer is called Kiwi not because there is Kiwis in it but because all the Hops are from New Zealan, should have mentioned that in the post......


BIB....
