Default Citrus Weizen

Recipe Type: Extract

Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: none
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.25
Original Gravity: 1.055
Final Gravity: 1.012
IBU: 15.4
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 7.0
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7
Additional Fermentation: none

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

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.
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?

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...

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...

Hmm, now you have me thinking..


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.... It doesn't sound good to me.
