I found no need for the rice hulls with my system. Have not had any problems running off with this recipe. You may have to add to yours if you get a stuck sparge. Never had that beer. Will have to look for it around here to give it a try.

Just made me a batch of something similar to this; I used 50/50 wheat and 2-row and then honey malt; I've not used the honey malt before so I am leaving out the crystal to see what I get; I did add a touch of victory; hops i used were columbus for bittering and then lots of citra in the latter stages/dry hop. This is a good recipe for a dry hop/fruity/American style brew!

Agreed. Great recipe to experiment with. I'll bet it smells awesome with citra. I really like the flavor of victory, but it can be overpowering if you use too much.

I was planning on doing something similar. My cousin asked me to brew something with a honey and lemon flavor, so I thought an American wheat with honey malt and Sorachi Ace hops would work well. The grain bill was going to be 5# 2-row, 5# white wheat and 0.5# honey malt. For hops, I was going to use a little Magnum for bittering and 0.5 ounce additions of Sorachi Ace at 20, 15 and flameout for a total of 20 IBU's. Does that sound like it would work? I've never used Sorachi Ace before. I also have some Cascade and Citra hops that I could add to make it more interesting.

Also, any thoughts on if 0.5# of honey malt will give a good honey flavor for this grain bill. It's 1.052 OG.

Les, I'd like to know how this brew turns out if you go forward with it. I just did a test brew 1.75 gal, of kinda the same thinking. I used SA for bittering @ 60 cascade @20, and motueka @ 10 and @ 5. I tasted a sample 3 days ago and it tasted good. tonite I think Im going to bottle it. I can't wait to crack one open and see how it turns out.

btw I had an OG of 1.066

I'm actually going to be brewing it tomorrow, so I'll let you know how I make out. I also decided to go with the East Coast Kolsch yeast instead of an American hefe yeast.

I hear that the Kolsch yeast should be good . I would have used Wyeast American Wheat 1010, but this time I used SafbrewS-33 I had on hand for an emergency . I never used this yeast before. I researched it and found It really does not do what the Mfg. says it does. Belgium Style, Fruity esters, and some spicy notes? Most say it comes through neutral I also read that it's been used for wheats. So if it's a neutral yeast, I felt this would good for what I'm trying to do. Even if it gave a little Spicy notes, that mite be good. Tastes great from the 2 Hydro samples I took. OG 1.066 FG 1.015 6.7 % ABV. Cold Crashed it lastnite. Ill give it 2 days, Then bottle. Time will tell.
Good luck with yours.

Should work out good. I've only used sorachi ace as a dry hop. Any clean American yeast will make this a nice easy drinker. Or if you are looking for more of a Belgian then go that route. The base recipe lends itself to many interpretations. Let us know how it turns out.
