    Please keep in mind that this was not intended to be a clone. DeSchutes uses CC75, which is why

    So a buddy and I are going to attempt to do a 10 gallon batch of a dunkelweizen and split it
    this weekend. I typically only get 60% efficiency w/ my wheat beers so the grain amount seems
    to push it on...

    I'm looking at @plankbr's 5 gallon recipe and something in the IBU calculations doesn't match
    my Beersmith. Here's a line from the original:0.5 oz - Nugget, Type: Pellet, AA: 14, Use: First
    Wort, IBU:...

    I am into my second year of all grain brewing. I buy the grains pre milled from reputable on
    line sources. I use Beersmith for the recipes. Measuring my gravities with a hydrometer, and

    It's not like I was getting overcarbed beer. The foam didn't dissipate well and it kind of
    reminded me of a root beer float creamy froth. Since I removed the wheat, the head issue went
    away. It's just...
