Default Multiple - Honey Orange Hefeweizen

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: WB-06
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5
Original Gravity: 1.045
Final Gravity: 1.008
IBU: 10.5
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 5.4
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 3
Tasting Notes: Nice malty sweetness, just enoughcitrus flavor, moderate banana/clove, med-light body

*NOTE: I know it isn't a real hefeweizen since there is orange in it. I just like the alliteration of the name.

**NOTE #2: I've noticed the recipe statistics don't show up on the HBT app. Here they are for quick reference --

- 5.5 gallons
- OG 1.045, FG 1.008
- Boil 60 minutes
- 10.5 IBU
- 5.4 SRM

Mash
Single-Infusion, 12QT water, 60 miuntes @ 154*F

4.00 lb White Wheat Malt (2.4 SRM) 45.71 %
3.00 lb Pilsner (2 Row) Ger (2.0 SRM) 34.29 %
1.00 lb Wheat, Flaked (1.6 SRM) 11.43 %
0.75 lb Honey Malt (25.0 SRM) 8.57 %


Boil (60 minutes)

0.50 oz Tettnang [4.50 %] (60 min) 7.7 IBU
0.50 oz Tettnang [4.50 %] (10 min) 2.8 IBU
zest of 4 large navel oranges (10 min)


Yeast

Safale Wheat Ale (WB-06)



This one has been made a couple times in the past and my sister recently commissioned it for a housewarming party. With only two weeks to get it done it still turned out spectacular. The yeast can create a decent amount of banana flavor but it suits it really well. The beer has body and character but is still refreshing and very quaffable.

Be sure to not skimp on the honey malt, it really adds something special. As you can tell, there is not actual honey in the recipe; all the flavor gets fermented out. Also, be sure when you zest the oranges to only go as far as there is orange/yellow color; don't get any white (pith) in there, unless you want serious orange bitterness.

For it to come out just as delicious and quick:
- Keep it in the primary for about 7 days
- KEGGERS: Transfer to your keg and let sit at room temperature for roughly 3 days, then get it cold and carbed in your favorite fashion
- BOTTLERS: Be sure fermentation has completed, then bottle as you typically would. Sadly it won't be ready as quick as it would in a keg but give in 1-2 weeks and it should be fully carbed and ready to drink
- Remember, hefe's are best enjoyed young


If you give this a shot please let me know how it goes! It really is a great beer and is pleasing to the masses. Even my BMC drinking sister wants 5 gallons of it!!

That's not a Hefe Weizen...it's a Honey Orange Wheat...

Does the honey malt impart any flavor in that brew?

Yeeaaaah I know but I like the alliteration.

It sure does! It adds a great malty sweet(ish) character that very closely resembles, well, honey. Even if the beer ferments lower than expected and it's very dry overall, that honey malt still shines through.

Thanks. I have a pound, but not sure where to use it.

I'm sure I'll get around to using it this year though.

Right now I'm working on an ale recipe but changing out just the hops.

I want to try this. What do you think of using WLP300 on this? Maybe 320?

Sure. I use WB-06 (scoff at me, everybody!!) so WLP300 or 320 would be great. Go with 300 if you want the banana/clove associated with traditional German hefes. I find 300 produces very similar results as WB-06. If using the liquid yeast I'd suggest making a 1 liter starter.

If you do end up trying this please let me know how it turns out!

I'll just be using washed yeast, but I'll let you know. Might take me a while to fit this into my brew schedule, I never seem to have enough buckets ;-)

Yeah, I'm full at the moment too. But luckily buckets run cheap at the LHBS, even ones with holes up top and spigots down below. Might have to pick up another one... I find myself wanting to make this again

Let me know which yeast strain you use, that way I can use the other one when I make this again

Seeing as I have a bunch of 320, I'll probably go with that. But I tell you what, first one to brew it, post it.
