  • My first 2 brews were a wheat beer, which was good, and a Belgain Abbey single which turned out great. Both of those have been drank. I just brewed a Nut Brown, and an Oatmeal Stout w/ Maple syrup. I'm still waiting to see how the Nut Brown will be after more conditioning time. The Stout is still in the secondary.

    I just looked up the characteristics of the Wyeast 4766, and Midwest says it ferments dry. I
    assume it must be dry in the overall comparison of yeasts, but is it sweeter than the cote des

    Thanks for the tip on the mash temp. I think I'll go ahead and leave the recipe as is then. I
    can't wait to try this out.

    of personal taste ...I noticed that in several threads about weizenbock that ppl have stated
    their prefe...

    My previous understanding was that bock was a lager type as well. However, I recently
    discovered that it simply means a strong beer.

    Ya, I was planning on using either 1.5# dark wheat, or crystal 40, and 4# of dark Munich.
