Brewed this a while ago with Amarillo & citra subbed in for the later 2 additions. Everyone who's tried it loves it, and last weekend, it took 2nd place in the wheat beer category of our local homebrew competition.

Re-brewing tomorrow night. Love this beer. Thanks for posting.

2 lb Extra Light DME (60 min)
1.5 lb Extra Light DME (12 min)
2.7 lb Wheat DME (12 min)
0.25 lb Munich LME (12 min)

Hops:
0.3 oz Magnum (14.0% AA); 60 min.
0.3 oz Centennial (8.8% AA); 10 min.
0.7 oz Centennial (8.8% AA); 0 min.

I'm thinking it should turn out similar. If anyone has any suggestions let me know!

ghotiblue, do you know the specific malt composition of the Wheat DME you plan to use? Wheat malt extracts I have used before were a combination of wheat and pale malt (55% wheat malt/45% pale malt), so I would suggest using just the Wheat DME as your base and the Munich malt as your specialty grain. With the Munich, be sure to do a mini-mash or steep it in 1/2 quart of 152°C water for 45 minutes to convert the starch to sugar. I think that should get you pretty close!

Thanks for the advice. The Wheat DME is Munton's, so I think you're right about it only being 55% wheat. I didn't realize that, so thanks for pointing it out!

I was planning on using Munich LME, not grain. Are you saying I should instead just steep some munich grain and not use the extract? This is just my second batch, so I don't have any experience yet with partial mash brewing. But I don't mind giving it a shot if you think it will be better.

Oh sorry, I missed that it was Munich LME and not grain the first time I read it. Yes, just use the Munich extract like you planned and that should work great.

So... I attempted to make this beer on Saturday. My LHBS didnt have the 2565 yeast, but instead only had the Kolsch II 2575, so I used that instead. Also I forgot to put in the hops at flameout...It was the first brew on the new brew stand and it got a bit crazy by that time. The brew was fermenting like crazy yesterday though. We'll see how it comes out!

I have brewed this beer several times and have enjoyed each batch. Very tasty.

Has anyone played with the yeast pitch rates related to this beer? I am particularly interested in anyone who has underpitched the beer yeast to get more flavor from the yeast.

I plan on brewing this again and underpitching it to see if more of the flavor profiles come through.

It depends on what you mean by underpitching. Some folks on here would say that a single smack pack in 6 gallons is underpitching. If that's the case, then I have underpitched, and it turned out fantastic (got silver in the Wheat Beer category). I wouldn't say it was overly yeasty - if that's what you're after might want to try even less.

I just brewed his yesterday for my first true all grain batch. I was a little low on my OG but overall he process went well and it's fermenting away tonight. Pretty excited about it.
