Flaked wheat gives it body just like the real thing. If your to dry try using your mash temp. So if your mashing at 152 try 154. Could be your temp is off by 2 degrees.

Thanks.

What about the sweetness - does DME taste more sweet than pilsner/wheat ?

Strike with 3.8 gallons @ 162 (desired rest at 152)
Sparge with 4.2 gallons @ 170

1.5 oz Hallertauer (5%) @ 60
1 oz Grains of Paradise @ 15
1 oz Lemon Zest @ 15
1 oz Hallertauer (5%) @ 5

Pitch yeast and ferment for 14 days. Bottle condition and carbonate with 4 oz of corn sugar.

Taste is almost dead on to Sam Adams Summer Ale. Carbonation was a little low, probably will up to 4.5 oz next time I brew it. I've had lots of compliments on this one and I'm very happy with it. Definitely keeping this recipe on top for the spring when I'm ready to brew a summer ale again.


If you go for this, let me know. I'd be interested to see how it turns out for someone else!

According to the sam adams page for this beer the ibus are 7....no where near 29.

I use .50 Oz hallertauer @ 30 and .50 Saaz @ 10 which ends up at 7.1 ibus, depending on the AA's of the hops. According to the Web site both these hops are in summer ale. I do believe they added the saaz hops the this year's brew.

My version of the clone had just about the same hop additions.

Only 1g of seeds of paradise seems light. Most recipes have around 4g. Crushed I assume.

Btw, I keep seeing flaked wheat. What for?

Nice recipe!

(Edit that should be 2 grams of seeds of paradise) I stuck with 2 grams of seeds of paradise because that is what the Local brew sold them in a packet (Stuff isn't cheap). I since have scored 4 oz of seeds of paradise on eBay for around $15, so i may up it a little. Flaked wheat adds a little body to the brew.
