I have a desire to make some beer for SWMBO so I get some acceptance with the hobby. Got Cheesefood's Caramel Cream/Boom-Boom Ale in the works.
I am thinkin "Boom-Boom" has more than one meaning now...
Time to get SWMBO drunk off some homebrew and ehh....TMI.
Anyways, Weisen's are easy on the girls with very proper ABV's for above TMI so here is what I came up with and I need some constructive criticism on this recipe.
5gal batch (extract + grain steep)
Starting Gravity: 1.061
1/2# Belgian Aromatic Malt
1/2# Flaked Wheat
---steep for 30min at ~150deg
6# LME Wheat
2# Honey (added at 30min)
1oz Hallertau at 50min remaining (bitter)
1/2oz Saaz at 15min remaining (flavor)
1oz Saaz at flameout for 3min (aroma)
Yeast: Wyeast 3068 Weihenstephan Weizen at 68deg ferment.
3#1oz Oregon Apricot Puree into secondary
3/4-cup corn sugar for bottling
