I love wheat beer! I bought all the ingredients. I'm a little bit confused on how much to boil.
Steep: Crush malt. Steep in Ĺ gal water at 150F for 20 mins. Sparge with 1 gal 150F water. <--- 1.5 gallon at this point
Boil time: 60 minutes
Bring steeped malt to a boil then remove from flame. <--- Still 1.5 gallon?
Add hops and 1 lb XL DME and dissolve. Boil for 45 mins. <--- Still 1.5 gallon or add more water?
Remove from flame.
Add remaining malt 1 lb at a time and dissolve.
Return pot to flame and boil 15 mins. Remove from heat. <--- How much here? Will this boil down a lot after 45 minutes.
Sparge hops through net on primary. Top off to 5.25 gals with freezer water. Stir in.
I want to get this correct. I get tired of pouring out bad beer.
