I wanted to do a hefeweizen for my next brew (extract) before I get the rest of my equipment together for an all-grain experiment, so I went to the LHBS this afternoon to see what ingredients I could pick up. After browsing around a little, I decided to combine a few ideas I have seen into a slightly experimental recipe to see what happens...

Orange Blossom Special (Style: Slightly Unidentified)

6 lbs Wheat DME
1/2 oz Amarillo Hops (8%) @ 30 mins
3/4 oz Sweet Orange Peels @ 5 mins
1 lb Orange Blossom Honey @ flame out
WLP400 Belgian Wit Ale Yeast

EST OG: 1.059
EST FG: 1.014
EST Color: 7.1 SRM
EST IBU: 11.0

Any thoughts on this?

Looks good. My only thought was the Amarillo hops and the time you are using them. are they for bittering and flavor?

They are for bittering, and to stay within the IBU range I wanted for this recipe, I only needed 1/2 oz for 30 minutes in a full boil. Wheat beers aren't traditionally hoppy.

I have everything I need to make it ready to go but it will probably be next weekend before I get it made. I bought the hardware I need to build my immersion chiller, so I hope to get that built and tested this afternoon. If everything goes well there I will cook this recipe next weekend and get it in the fermenter.

That's eerily similar to a batch I have in primary. Except I went more of the braggot route, as in half honey have wheat LME. Same honey and hops though.

I did make a clover/wheat lme braggot before, without the late addition hop....which is why I did the late addition hop this time. Still great, though. Weird thing is, after about 6 months, it's cleared.

This Saturday will be two weeks in the primary. Just gave the primary a shake, and the airlock emission....
