    Anyone have any experience with the Czech Budojevice Lager yeast? I made a starter that was
    going really slow and then pitched it in yesterday and it is going very slow. I am getting
    maybe 1 bubble a ...

  • Posted in thread: Unmalted wheat question *Please help* on 08-05-2011 at 05:03 PM
    I am going to do a Wit with unmalted wheat. With the wheat would it be best to just do a rest
    at say 152 for a half an hour with the wheat alone and then boil it for a while, just mash it
    using steps ...

    I plan on using rice hulls. I was told to boil the unmalted wheat for an hour first then add
    all that wheat malt grain and water to use as a mash with the 2-row. Does that sound right?

    he is horr...

    Any of them would be fine. I have tried with all of those and have never seen a whole lot of
    difference due to the low hop usage in a hefe. Go with roughly .75 oz of hallertau and it will
    turn out gre...

    I know.. Why I did it I do not know. Curiosity killed the cat right. I had just pulled it out
