Default All-Grain - Widmer Hefeweizen American Wheat

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: WLP320
Yeast Starter: 1500ml

IBU: 30
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60

Tasting Notes: Pretty darn close, I didn't have all the hops they use for their ALCHEMY blend.

I think I may do some tweaking the next time I make this and try to get the 3 hops that are used in their alchemy blend that is used for bitttering but I am happy with the results.

Thanks, I did cool for a short while, overnight I think but want to keep a little bit of the floaties in there.

I heard a rumor that they used lactic acid, my guess is in the mash to lower the ph so just make sure your ph is on the low end, 5.1 - 5.2. Also if you could get the hops they use in their ALCHEMY (Warrior and Millennium and lately a little horizon) blend it may be worth it but if not a good clean bittering hop will work.

I can get the warrior and horizon in pellets... wonder if either would make a good sub for the magnum?? any thoughts?

EDIT: http://www.midwestsupplies.com/ carries all three of the varieties you mentioned.... what exactly is this ALCHEMY blend?

From the sounds of it, the horizon thing is only recent and it doesn't sound like there is much of it as far as percentage. I think the main bittering is from Warrior and Millennium so I would use those 2 or like I said, you should be fine with a clean bittering hop. There is a hop taste at 30 IBUs but it is not dominate by any means.

The blend is Widmers propriotery percentages of each of these hops and used as the bittering in a few of their beers. No one knows the exact percentages but I would start out with something like 45% warrior, 45% Millenium and 10% horizon.

That looks good, it looks like you are using beersmith, are you getting 75% effeciency? If so, change your brewhouse efficiency to 82 and then click "Scale" and change it to 75%. You have the same amounts as I had but mine was based on 82% so your OG is a little low.
