Belay my last. I can't stop thinking about how tasty this sounds, and I realized that I have everything I need for a 2.5gal batch except for the juice sitting around the house. I'll have to sub S-04 for the yeast, but I'm doing a half batch of this tonight.
edit: shoot I was forgetting about the wheat...I have flaked wheat or white wheat malt...I normally do AG so I'm not really up to speed on steeping or PM or whatever we're doing here; which should I use?
double edit: Looks like the flaked is the way to go. According to beersmith: Flaked wheat adds to increased body and foam retention
Used in place of raw or torrified wheat for faster conversion and better yield.
May be used in small amounts to improve head retention and body. I'm gonna add 1/2lb 2-row to this to convert it.
Here's the new recipe:
Make 1 gallon of wort from the following...
2oz Flaked Wheat
1/4oz Crystal 3.5%AA 30 min
OG of the wort should be about 1.052
Mix with 2 gallons of apple juice, OG of about 1.054, for a final 3 gallon batch OG of 1.053ish, ferment with S-04.
