Please excuse my ignorance. This will be my second brew and would really like to try this. My question is when purchasing the grains, I would purchase them "Crushed"? I would imagine so, but is that taken care of by Sparge? Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thx

Has anyone bottled this? Would 2-3 weeks bottle conditioned be long enough or longer still?

Opened one of these last night after a week carbing.......at first it was a tad sweet then the flavor really came through! Wow....this tastes really good. I did a slight mod to it.....i put in 1lbs. Belgian candi sugar.......its darker but i gotta say this is an awesome brew! I have to get another batch going soon. I dont see it lasting that long!

Brewed this bad boy tonight. Great recipe - gracias.

Used the red wheat as well and WLP300.

Slight modification - added 2.5oz of corn sugar. Just had it lying around so figured I'd add a little abv and dryness. Cannot wait to bottle this in a little over a week.

with homebrewing, your grain should always be crushed. either at your LHBS or at home with your grain mill.

Glad to see everyone is enjoying this recipe. I am thinking about scaling this upto a 10gal all grain version to do tomorrow.

Just brewed this (my fourth ever batch) up this morning. Looking forward to having this take the edge off of everybody on Christmas Eve at the in-laws!

I'm so stoked to try this recipe. I'm assuming if I like a more estery version, I should go with Wyeast 3068.

Any reason why you went DME and LME for the extracts? I was thinking of doing the reverse, since I can't get wheat LME at my LHBS.

Bottled this after 10 days in primary. Still LOTS of yeast in the bottles. After 5 days it was good and carbed, but tasted like a yeasty hef that was missing something. My disappointment was measurable.

Over a week later, I tried it again and . . . we have a winner! It's a good brew. Can't say I would brew it again (not a huge wheat fan) but this is a really tasty beer to fill in the pipeline.

Is it clearer than before, or just the flavors melded together a bit better?
