Fermented low at 64-66 in the corner of the basement for 14 days.

I have to say that this beer is great. Just carbed it up yesterday with 24 psi for 36 hours.

Cloudy, but it's a wheat. The sweetness from the Honey Malt and the Amarillo and Centennial hops give an nice and interesting interaction.

Fermenting the US-05 Yeast at 65 really made a light difference.

When I tasted the FG sample, I didn't think that I would like it, but I do.

I just bottled some of this in late April. I used Kent, Williamette and Hallertau hops instead because it's what I had on hand.

It came out really good. I was looking for a nice summer afternoon beer and this is really doing the job.

Thanks!

The Amarillo and the Centennial give a nice citrus undertone for summer as well.

The Willamette would probably be nice too.

How much honey flavor do you get? Is it pretty subtle?

slimer 07-26-2009 10:25 PM

The sweetness from the Honey Malt counteracts (and balances) the bitterness from the hops. I wouldn't say it's sweet, it's tasty.

When you read times like this:

Double Infusion, Medium Body Step Time Name Description Step Temp
20 min Protein Rest Add 7.50 qt of water at 144.5 F 122.0 F
60 min Saccrification Add 6.00 qt of water at 206.3 F 154.0 F
10 min Mash Out Add 7.50 qt of water at 198.1 F 168.0 F

does 60 minutes mean 60 minutes from time 0 or an additional 60 minutes after the initial 20?
