Citrus Weizen
 
6# Wheat DME (60/40 of wheat and pils)
1 oz. Hallertauer hops at 3.2% for 60 minuts of boil
at 15 minutes left of the boil add the zest (the outer part of the peals) of 4 large orange and lemons

1 packet of Nottingham dry yeast.

This has turned out great and the wife even loves it. A very soft, sweet summer beer with the hint of citrus.

Thanks. That clone recipe I got from you is in the fermenter right now and will be bottled either this weekend or next depending on what kind of time I have.
I checked the gravity last night and it was right on and tasted damn good. :mug:
I did change that one up a little though. Did not use the grains you called for but switch it to 1# of crystal 10L and .5# of carpel steeped for 30 minutes in 1.5 gal at 155* then steeped for 10 minutes in 1.5gal (different pot) at 170* . Added the two pots together +3gal and brewed as normal for an extract full boil.

Quick question, when you say 4 large oranges and lemons, do you mean 4 oranges and 4 lemons or 2 and 2?

I handed out 6 of these to guys at work and so far everyone loves the beer and wants more. :rockin:

Sounds great, I'm going to give this a whirl next weekend. Will be pitching on top of my yeast cake from a hefe I brewed last weekend. I'll let you know how it goes :)

No telling where this will end...:confused:

If you use a German Weizen yeast for the banana flavor then add the zest from 4 oranges and 4 lemons, add some raspberry flavoring, then cherry, etc., we can call it a Fruit Cocktail Weizen...:D

Hmm, now you have me thinking.. :D


The strawberry hefe I have going now is really putting off A LOT of bannana which should go great with the strawberries I'm going to rack it onto.

But, I was only joking....:D It doesn't sound good to me.
