Making this tomorrow, can't wait to try it out! My planned adjustments:

  • 0.5oz Belma for FWH - I have a ton of it.
  • 0.5oz Centennial at 10min, 1oz Centennial at FO. This should get IBUs true to style according to Brewer's Friend.
  • Wyeast 3944 (washed 2nd gen) on a 2L starter, since I have it sitting around from brewing up SWMBO Slayer a few weeks ago.

There are likely to be unplanned adjustments as well.

I was going to use harvested oberon yeast do you guys think that would be a good idea?

Also my crawl space is around 67F will that work?

I have a spare pack of Wyeast 2565 and was wanting to make pretty much exactly this beer. How would it taste racked onto some fruit?

Everyone,

I have made this beer on three separate occasions, with three different types of yeasts, all three times, this recipe comes out excellent! I have even added some honey malt. What a flexible recipe.

I used blueberries, at first it didn't taste the greatest. At first it was pretty bitter, I was expecting some sweetness from the blueberries. It has been in the bottle now 4 months and is finally tasting pretty good. I don't have the patience to wait that long for a beer, so probably won't try this one over fruit again. Maybe it would work better with orange since the hops have a citric hint to them.

+1 to this. I made this beer a few times with different hops at least, and every time it was amazing. Temporarily out of the homebrewing game but this may be my first batch when I start up again next year.

After 6 months of sitting in bottles. Tastes just like lemons.

Heating strike water for 5 gallons of this as we speak. Going to brew pretty much true to recipe, except for an extra dose of hops. Magnum at FW, 1/2oz Centennial @ 10min, 1/2oz Centennial @ 5min, and 1 oz Centennial at flameout for a total of 25.6 IBUS according to beersmith. Pitching a slurry of Kolsch yeast.

I made this on Sunday as my first all grain recipe. The process went pretty well and it's fermenting like crazy. I'm glad I used a blow off tube because it would have definitely blew my air lock.

I do have a couple questions. If I don't cold crash, do I need to ferment longer than 9 days or move to a secondary? How do I know if 9 days are long enough?

Then once I bottle, how long should they be bottled before drinking? Is a couple weeks good?

9 days is enough if you check the gravity reading and it's more or less at the estimated FG. Or, if you're doing things by the book, if you check the gravity a few days in a row and it's not moving anymore (and not stuck).

Since it's a wheat beer, I'd check it after a week in bottle and see if it's carbed up. If so, have at it. I know patience is usually advised on here, but this beer is so good when it's fresh and young.
