ok, this is my second brew and based on the results of my first brew and it's carbonation after 1 week, before I popped the top on my Cherry Wheat, I tipped the bottle upside down twice.

maybe i shouldn't have...

beer came out of the bottle upon popping the flip top and the head was tremendous.

the good news, this beer TASTES GREAT!!! Nice Wheat beer with a pronounced Cherry taste and great carbonation... has a nice red hue to it, the picture doesn't show the red so much, but holding it up to the sunlight, it looks marvelous...

This one is not gonna last long... And based on the carbonation, I tempted to fridge some of this...

What do you guys think?



WOW

Whats up with those advertisements????????? anyway......

Just let it sit for a couple more weeks! It'll get better with time. Even just a week and you will notice a huge difference.

At work bro! Lovely pic...except for that blasted Shiner Bock glass! How can you dis' the weisse like that?

I'mma open one at 1wk as well. Probably keep it room-temp until 3wks then shove it in the basement. Haven't popped one yet, but HAVE thought about popping one daily.

Hopefully it's mellow enough for SWMBO...after all it's not called Boom-Boom Hefe for nothing!

Right now I'm on my one-beer buzz from my Ol' ManWinter Ale taste-testing...6.5% ABV... on an almost empty stomach...

No, I wasn't talking about your beer pic, i was talking about the Emu Oil advertisement at the bottom of the page.

sorry bout the Shiner Glass, i do need some clear ones...

My SWMBO loved the Cherry Wheat, even at room temp, that's gotta say something.

The only think disappointing about the Cherry Wheat is the 4.0% ABV, but i can live with it, since it tastes so good...

I will give them some more conditioning time as HurricaneFloyd suggested. I know it will only improve with time and the fact i tipped it over a few times before pouring added to the rather large head.

Here's to your Apricot Hefe, my Cherry Wheat and the Puree

well you probably don't want it. i am still a beginner and have just done 4 brews. the last two were kits that i steeped grains, added DME or LME and hops. but the cherry wheat was just a very basic Coopers Wheat Kit in a can (pre hopped).

the key to the cherry however was some Oregon Cherry Puree... 3 lbs added to the secondary when racking...

i would say get someone else's Wheat Beer recipe or a kit and then add large can of Cherry puree when racking to your secondary...

but since you asked, and i know it's gonna let some of you down, here is what i used...



and
