I just bottled an AHS American Wheat kit, partial mash, adding the citrus as indicated in this recipe. The hydrometer sample tasted fantastic, nice refreshing citrus kick that was still in balance with the rest of the beer. I can't wait until this one is nicely conditioned, chilled, and in my glass on a sticky summer evening. Thanks for an excellent brewing idea!

When you say zest, do you mean the whole peel? If not how do I get the outside of the peel off?

I used a potato peeler.

Update on my batch: This beer is fantastic! My friends keep going back to the fridge for more of it. My wife and I poured a couple on a 95+ degree day last week, and this may be the perfect summer beer. I highly recommend it to anyone interested- tasty, refreshing, and easy to brew. Great beer.

Really happy that you like it. I don't post many recipes unless they are really good, I don't want people making them and hating me for a bad beer.

Made this 2 weeks ago. I didn't bottle/rack it for 2 weeks for a variety of reasons: extended power outage (on a well), car trouble, and plain laziness. I bottled it today and I'm really excited, it's going to taste GREAT. The uncarbonated "beer" from my bottling bucket even tasted good (good enough to drink the 1/2 cup I had left over)! This is largely taken from Roaring Bull Brewery's version on page 2, but I couldn't get Northern Brewer and I added the carapils as suggested.

Default Newbie question -- why use Nottingham here?

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.
This sounds wonderful. But why use Nottingham? Why not use a yeast which puts out fruity flavors?

Because I did not want the fruity/spicy of a Heffe yeast. Wanted it to be clean, crisp and light.
Feel free to do what you want, it's beer, enjoy it.

Ok, pardon my n00bness here. This will be my first attempt at a non-kit brew and I have a few questions. First, If I am doing only a 3-3.5 gallon boil instead of a full boil are there any adjustments that I need to make (ie hops). Second, how do you recommend that the DME be added? Should it be added at the beginning and boiled for the full 60 minutes or should it be split up and some added at flameout? Lastly, I'm a bit confused about the DME. You have it listed as "6# Wheat DME (60/40 of wheat and pils)" Is this a certain type of wheat DME or is this two seperate types (ie 60% wheat dme and 40% pils dme)? Thanks.
