Sounds good. Gonna try this tomorrow.

Do you guys calculate the rice husks when figuring the total lbs of grains for the water needed or do you just consider it 11 lbs?

i rinsed the hulls in hot water before i added them to the mash so they wouldn't asbsorb that much wort

i didn't include them in the total grain calc.

So I brewed this today and it seemed to go well other then me missing my mash temps.

Just to clarify...Original Gravity: 1.052 means a 1.052 gravity reading post boil?

yes post boil and also before pitching the yeast and then take your FG number and adjust for temperature.

Thanks. My mash didn't go that well but I still hit 1.050 so I am happy.

Awesome! Please let us know how this turns out as it's on my list for sure. Before this is Edwort's House Pale ale.

Super excited about both recipes!

Keep us updated on your brew!
Jeff

I just bottled this one last night and it came out awesome judging from the hydrometer sample. Nice balance between cloves and bananas and not too strong flavors from either. I tweaked the recipe just a hair buy subbing Munich in for 8oz. of the Pilsner malt just to add a little bit of malt character.

I ended up being more efficient than normal which was great process wise but my OG is a little out of style at 1.056.

I made a 1L starter on my stirplate with the WLP300 and had a nice clean fermentation held at 64* the entire time. Final gravity was 1.010.

Carbed to style on this one using 5.5 oz. corn sugar for the 5g batch.

Can't wait to taste the final results!

Will do. It is bubbling away right now stinkin up my garage heh.

Is this beer really ready for bottling at 10 days or is that if you are kegging?

Hefes are ready pretty quickly typically. I left mine in primary for 14 days then bottled (absolutely no need for a secondary for a hefe). No diacetyl present, etc. It tasted like it was ready to go.

What temp are you fermenting at? That's the most important factor. If it's on the high side I would let it mellow out for a while in primary.

Been sitting at about 68-70 now since Sat. I also used a american wheat and not a german one since my local store didn't have it. Guy there said it wouldn't make a huge difference but who knows.
