Just brewed a very similar clone a couple of weeks ago. I used Red Wheat (per 3Floyds) and I couldn't find the Caravienne at my LHBS, but they had a Cara-Amber (which after the fact found out it is somewhat like Victory/Biscuit)., so that is what I went with. Hope that doesn't change the flavor profile too much. It smells great!

Has anyone used WLP051 (California V) with this type of beer?? (That's what I went with, my 1st time using this yeast. If so, how were the results??

My dyslexia kicked in and I actually had 5 lbs of white wheat and 6 lbs of 2 row. Mash started at 153 and dropped to about 150 after 75 min. OG was dead nuts at 1.054. Used S04 dry yeast.

Curiously, took a gravity reading today before dry hopping and FG is 1.006. This attenuated a lot more than I expected. The gravity sample tasted good, but not surprisingly it had a lot of alcohol warmth. I don't have any software to easily calculate what OG and FG should have been with the extra 2 row. Do you guys think the FG was so low because of the extra 2 row, or was it more likely something to do with the mash temp/time?

Really looking forward to drinking this in a few weeks after DH and bottling. Thanks for the recipe and any help.
Not your process' fault it looks solid. SO-4 is beast and will munch through sugars, especially if your temps drifted up.

Two weeks is too long. Typically 7-10 days. Otherwise you may get grassy flavored if you leave it too long on dry hop. Mine was great after 7.

I just brewed this the other day with the reviews i've read. Pulled the dry hops after 9 days and it still in the ferm as its currently sitting at 1.020, gonna check next week if it goes down to about 1.016. Had to taste it as it smelled awesome when i opened the fermenter. its a bit watery flavored now, is that normal for this stage in the fermenter? about 12 days in.

So I just opened a bottle of mine after 1 week. I know early but I had to try it after it smelled so good. I was quite disappointed, it seemed to have a pretty sour taste to it, so I'm not sure if I'm just jumping the gun, or something is wrong with the batch. I'll try another bottle in a week to see if anything changed cause it could just be premature, but I'm hoping the whole batch isn't ruined.

Kegging my 3rd batch of this to kick off the warm weather. Love it! Since this is similar to Gumballhead dry-hopped with Simcoe, I now call it Simballhead.

Have been looking at this recipe for a couple weeks and just noticed where MOREBEER has the new WLP200 (mix of 001 and 002). Has anyone tried his yet, or will have to be the first? Havent been able to decide whether or not to go American or English yeast. Figure this is the best of both worlds (no pun intended, really).
