Basic Hefeweizen
 
Just your basic, run of the mill Hefeweizen. Use your choice of Hefeweizen yeast and noble hops. Can also be easily done as an all-extract recipe by subbing 6# of DME for the grains.

Can you post a schedule with this?

That recipe is begging for a decoction! Try a single, double, or triple decoction to make this beer shine! You'll be quite pleased with the end result;)

Glibbidy is correct (and Denny's schedule looks good, too). I think an important factor for a great AG Hefeweizen is an acid rest. I could have decocted from protein -> maltose, but decided to infuse. In the future I would probably just go to a single saccharification temp of 150F via decoction instead of separate maltose and saccharification rests.

Mash Schedule

Mash Name: Hefeweizen Single Decoction

Total Grain Lbs: 11.00
Total Water Qts: 11.00 - Before Additional Infusions
Total Water Gal: 2.75 - Before Additional Infusions

Grain Temp: 75.00 F


Step Rest Start Stop Heat Infuse Infuse Infuse
Step Name Time Time Temp Temp Type Temp Amount Ratio

Acid Rest 3 20 99 99 Infuse 103 11.00 1.00
Protein Rest 2 30 122 122 Infuse 210 3.45 1.31
Maltose Rest 2 90 147 147 Infuse 210 6.61 1.91

Total Water Qts: 21.06 - After Additional Infusions
Total Water Gal: 5.26 - After Additional Infusions
Total Mash Volume Gal: 6.14 - After Additional Infusions

Denny's Evil Concoctions 04-17-2007 05:45 AM

Acid rest and the gum and debranching rests overlap so I use a temp that hits all 3.

Glibbidy 04-17-2007 02:48 PM

Are both of you pulling around 40% of the mash with your initial dough in here for the decoction?

Denny's Evil Concoctions 04-17-2007 07:49 PM

I have yet to do a decoction. It's on my to do one day list.

Me, too. It's third on my list, after 777 and my double-IPA.

Anyone want to give me a cheat-sheet on how I would do a decoction on this recipe? Target temps, how much to pull, how long to boil, etc?

I can walk you thru it in May if you can wait that long.

Right here:
