I followed the original recipe using .5oz of Fuggles (4%AA) and Carapils instead of torrified wheat. Thanks!
no issues at all, you will be fine.

I don't have any DME so I'll need to do an all-grain version. Any grocery store substitute for the wheat?
The torrified wheat is strictly for head retention asthetics, it doesn't do anything taste wise by adding it.

I have seen lows of 1.004 and highs of 1.012. I keg, so I don't worry if I see a 1.012 after a week. A bit of residual is nice. If you bottle, just make sure you let the hydrometer tell you if it's done. 3 days in a row with the same reading should mean it's done.

I made a 10 liter batch of this yesterday!

I used 8 liters of 100% apple juice from the store.

The wort was boiled in 2 liters of water with:
120 g crystal 60
120 g carapils
530 g dark LME
8 g East Kent Goldings

I cooled the wort in a water bath, mixed it with the AJ in the bucket and sprinkled a packet of Nottingham on it. This morning I saw some islands of white stuff floating on top, but not a "full" krausen yet.

I'm pretty excited about this.

Default racking onto fruit?


Excited to try this. I'm thinking of racking this onto some strawberries or blueberries in secondary. Has anyone else done this/have advice on how much to use?

Got it in the fermenter. I ended up with .75 gallons of wort instead of a gallon, but it was 1.132 OG which isn't bad for my first stovetop mash. Apple Juice was 1.044 so my OG is roughly 1.066. Thanks for the recipe. Next time I'm buying DME, too much time mashing that small amount of grain.

I just brewed a batch of this stuff.

us-05
2lbs DME (1 light 1 amber)
1oz flaked wheat
1/2 lb. crystal 60L
eyeballed 1/2oz of mt hood hops
4 gallons tree top apple juice

i didn't take a hydrometer reading, figured i'd just let it do its thing.

smelled great going into the carboy. cant wait to give it a taste. one of my concerns is dose this stuff get to stinking like apfelwein dose? its in my bedroom so i really hope not. altho it is a very small price to pay.

I'm finally bottling my batch tonight. It has been in the fermenter for over a month, so I hope there are no ill effects. Using 3/4c of corn sugar. Haven't bottled anything since I started kegging about 15 batches ago but these seems like the bottling kind of brew.
