3 Weeks in primary, 1.5 weeks on the gas, and this is beer is tasty. Definitely a hint of citrus, definite yeast profile with good mouthfeel. Mine is still a bit more cloudy than I would hav thought. Excellent will brew again before summer.

What is the difference between Belgian Wheat Malt and just normal wheat malt? All I have at my LHBS is the white wheat malt, would this work?

Just got done making this. My hydro sample measured only 1.048, but ithad a lot of trub in it, so i don't know if that impacted it. My mash temp was a bit low (153°) and the grains were bought and crushed a month ago, so that might have had some impact on it, i don't know.

What are the chances i need to worry about blow off since i stepped up and used a 7.5 gallon pail for the 5 gallon batch (had one laying around and it seemed like a good idea). ?

Does anyone use a protein rest for this one? I thought wheat could benefit from one (but it will not fit in my cooler MLT if I do it!). Considering this for my first all grain batch...

I brewed the extract version of this and it was very nice. I kegged it on Thursday and then had some people over on Friday and it got kicked Saturday morning. Everyone gave lots of compliments (hard to tell if they are genuine when they are getting free HB )

But yeah it was a big hit and I really enjoyed it. Im gona take the jump to AG once I get my tax return and I can't wait to make this again and even better.

No rest necessary.

It has an inviting unfiltered wheat look to it and the chics dig it regardless.

Glad it turned out nice. Kicking a keg in less than 24 hours? Must have been brewed pretty well.

Makes the volume manageable then. I got a 10 gal cooler, but was hoping to do a 10 gal batch. Might have to do this next weekend (if I get the last of my AG equipment), and slay my SWMBO too
