Gah! Fine... I'll just do a solid 5oz and be happy.

I took a reading on Saturday and it was 1028 (after 6 days). So this bad-boy is going to go 10 days in the carboy.

Edit: After 8 days... I'm at 1.026 :/ This puppy is going to go to a solid 14-15 days of fermentation (assuming it doesn't stall out)

There's no need to use a secondary for this one. It's a wheat beer... let the yeast float and enjoy cloudy

Also... at 12 days, I'm reading 1.023. Slowest fermentation EVER. Not sure why it's so slow, but I don't care. It's still fermenting, and it smells and tastes like heaven!!

Am I the only one that's had timing issues with this beer?

I'm over 2 weeks, still at 1.021. It's still moving, so it's alright, but it seems weird that it's taking this long :S

Brewed this yesterday but subbed White Wheat for American Wheat. Also used full 2# of grain. Ended up boiling 6 gallons down to about 5.5 with an OG of 1.060. Used Safale WB-06 and she is bubbling at around 72 on the fermometer. Will let you know how it turns out!

Well this mofo took about 4 weeks to fully ferment. I didn't take an OG reading, and it seems like the DME that I get, locally, is way more efficient than most recipes account for. I think that may have been the cause for the slow-ass fermentation, simply that I was starting way higher than anticipated and the yeast had to work overtime to get it to where it needed to be.

I bottled this on Monday and my wife said that it was pretty much the best tasting beer she's ever had... She immediately requested that I make another batch ASAP, since the 5gal I bottled won't last 6 weeks.

I harvested the yeast and am debating on reusing the slurry of 3064 from the last batch or using my WLP300 or WB-06. I like the idea of reusing my slurry simply because it won't last that long, as it sits

glad it finally finished. Likley you had a slow starting (old) yeast, way underpitched, or did not have enough oxigenation.

Glad your SWMBO loved it.

It was most likely lack of oxygenation. I made another batch on Saturday, but the OG was a bit too high, 1.069. I also swapped out a few things and added some wheat flakes to the steep. I also switched out the Cascade for Mt. Hood... just brewed with what I had on hand

I pitched a healthy 1L starter of WLP300, and there's a good amount of krausen, so it's chompin' away.

/edit: I also oxygenated the SHIZNIT out of it, this time around. Spent a solid 6 minutes with a Fizz-X until it was nice 'n creamy looking

Bottled mine about a week and a half ago now. It tastes delicious! Very easy to drink. Will keep on my list of quick, easy, and delicious recipes.
