Whoops. I typed the recipe up wrong. The first four pounds of DME are extra light DME, not wheat. Only the final pound (hence, 20% total) was wheat DME.

5488.8

My wife and friends can't get enough of this stuff! Though I've moved to kegging, I find bottling works better with apfelwein. Easier to transport to parties or give away to friends.
