Default Honey Wheat

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Wlp300
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5
Original Gravity: 1.053
Final Gravity: 1.012
IBU: 16
Boiling Time (Minutes): 35
Color: 11
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7+
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14+

Quantity Grain Use
3.00 lb American two-row mashed
4.00 lb American wheat mashed
2.00 lb Honey Malt mashed
1.00 lb Rye malt mashed

Quantity Hop Form Time
0.50 oz Nugget Pellet 35 minutes

As a note, if you make this, you should probably use some rice hulls with all the wheat and rye.

Roughly 24 hours after pitching, fermentation was going strong so I added 3lbs of clover honey. This will completely mess up any FG/OG readings, but personally, I don't care what the alc% comes to.

I'll post a reply when it's ready to drink as to how it tastes.

I really like the look of this. I think your recipe (or a very close derivative (partial mash, with some of the 2row and wheat replaced by DME to account for my limitations)) is my batch-after-next.

I opened the first the other day, it has very little carbonation after a week, so I don't know whats up with that. As for the taste, it's sweet yet has a sharp alcoholic bite, with as young as it is. Will post again when it's ready to drink. Warning though, my estimate as to what the OG with the honey would have been and then the FG coming to 1.008, that puts it upwards of 8%abv.

Ok, tasted again today, carbonated nicely, and it tasted ok. Honey is very prevalent as well as the banana from the wlp300. Alcohol is still strong, so it's going to sit for a month now before I chill another, I'll give more feedback then.

How did this end up? I'd also like to try to convert this to a partial mash...

sorry for the really slow reply... I liked it but I think I fermented the wlp300 to hot. It is fairly dominated by banannee esters. I would defiantly change the yeast to the American wheat strain.

Definitely let this one age a couple months and withhold judgment until then.

When mine was done, I called it Hefe Candy. I bet your result is similar, though the rye might add a nice bite to it....

My honey wheat used the same amount. I mashed high on mine. The result was an extremely luxurious mouthfeel and some great honeylike flavors. Think of it like a dessert beer....
