Brewed this is the snow on Easter morning, hence the name.

The use of tea came from Brewtopia's similar brew. I utilized black tea (Revolution brand, but Republic of Tea works too per Brewtopia) and steeped this tea in a hop bag for 5 minutes at flame-out. Great peach aroma without a ton of actual peach flavor. Peach flavor is perceived from aroma, but slight IMO. This is a refreshing, summer American-style wheat.

If you use the liquid yeast, ferment on the low side to prevent a ton of banana/clove. This yeast is good though as it lends complexity. I've used S-33 dry as well and its a fairly neutral strain. Any neutral strain could be used (S-05, etc.) as well...

Rice hulls probably not needed although I use some as I bought them and don't need them going to waste.

This has now been in the keg at 40F for about 2+ weeks now and reached full carbonation (15PSI). It has turned out to be a fantastic beer!! Thanks again to Brewtopia for the tea idea. I'd highly suggest brewing this if you like fruited wheats or are looking for a good summer quencher. The fruit presence is there, but not overpowering IMO. It's kind of like the apple sensation in apfelwein. Present, and comes out more as you drink more... but definitely not overkill. In other words, it doesn't taste like you are drinking fruit-juice.

Also, I don't recall the flocculation properties on this yeast, but the beer is still very cloudy at 2+ weeks of crash cooling. I think it's a nice fit for the style. I've brewed wheats before and used S-05, etc. and they come out crystal-weizen like after a couple weeks or a month in the kegerator. I like my wheat-beers cloudy, for the most part.
