At what point does a "citrus weizen" become a Belgin Whit?

I've made about 20 gal using a hefeweizen extract kit, and added the zest of two lemons & two oranges, and 1-2 tsp of coriander and sage (each). It comes out about half-way between a Shock Top (draft) and a Blue Moon.

Any problem using US-05 yeast instead of Nottingham? I have some that I might as well use.

I brewed a version of this 2 days ago. I made a couple of mods. Used 2oz of liberty instead (2oz instead of one because it was only a partial boil) and added 1 lb of wheat DME in the last 15min. Used 5 lemons instead of 4 and SafAle US-05.

Bubbling right away and smells awesome.

1 oz Hallertau pellet hops (added at beginning of boil)
.5 oz Sterling pellet hops (added for last 10 minutes of boil)
Zest of 4 oranges and 4 lemons (added for last 20 minutes of boil)

Using German Wheat Wyeast W3333
I'm trying CucuzzaBrew's variation, except I was thinking of using Wyeast 3068 Weihenstephan yeast. Any thoughts on how that might turn out? I'd like to get the banana and clove flavors in there but I hear it's a very aggressive and potentially messy yeast.

Hello, I followed your recipe as my first brew in over 6 years. so far the blow off smells great. I will let you know how it turns out, it will be ready in two weeks. Thanks for posting the recipe.

I know this thread is a couple years old but I had a question... I have a very similar recipe:

6# wheat LME
1# crystal 10
1 oz hallertau
wb-06 yeast

I've never done a wheat beer but from what I understand the wb-06 will create a banana-ish flavor... Have you tried to do fruit with this type of recipe? My wife wants a cherry wheat but I am skeptical of how it will turn out...

Default few more details


kinda of a newbie so be patient. do you add all DME at the beginning of the boil, and do you leave the peals in through out primary. Also, do you switch to a secondary. If bottling, how much priming sugar

This beer smells amazing. I just bottled it yesterday, so I can't give you a report on the taste. I think it is going to be very tasty, but I'll let you know the results middle of March.
Wonder how this turned out. I'll be brewing 2 different 5 gal batches in April, and this just might be 1 of them.

Brewed a small batch (original recipe) recently - 1.5 weeks in bottles now, nicely carbed. Not bad at all, definitely just a hint of citrus, soft and sweet as per the OP. For my tastes just a little too sweet, but downed a glass no problem. My gravities were on target. Did a late addition (last 15 min) for half the dme.
