I brewed a Paulaner Hefe Clone for my second batch. My intention was to steep the grains in a grain bag. Unfortunately after cracking the grains I tossed them directly into my brew kettle. Should I rack my primary into a secondary (carboy) or is it ok to leave the brew as is in the primary? Would this be considered "unfiltered" or did I error and should I just punt?

Unfiltered is pretty much every homebrew unless you actually use a filter. Usually this is to remove yeast. I've never boiled grains, but I imagine you will have some pretty odd flavors. I never advise dumping a beer, so wait it out in the primary and when it stops fermenting, take a sip. If it's unbearable, toss it. If it's only slightly bad, bottle it and let it sit. It might work out, but I doubt it. Boiling grains causes excess tannins to be released in your beer.... not good.

I had a feeling that would be the case. Pretty much a bonehead move on my part and a waste of a lot of time. Oh well, we hopefully learn from our mistakes. Thanks for the insight. I'll give it a go on the small chance it might work.

I would definitely wait it out there probably was not that many steeping grains for a hefeweizen anyway. It will probably turn out drinkable. If it is not the best you could always add lemon or lime while drinking it to try to mask any off flavors.

Recipe?

Depending on what grains you accidentally boiled, it might not be bad.

My Paulener Heffe clone calls only for DME Hops and yeast... I use the recipe from Beer Captured.

I was curious about that too. Most extract Hefeweizen recipes don't call for steeping grains. Just Wheat extract, which is a mix of pils and wheat.

The recipe called for 1 cup of crushed Munich Malt. It also called for 2-3lbs of Wheat DME. I'll probably be sampling the sauce tomorrow and will update with how it tastes. Thanks for the comments.

Bottled the hefe-clone yesterday. Everything seems to be ok and the taste believe it or not is right on. Looking forward to cracking open that first bottle in a couple of weeks.

Yeah 1 cup is barely anything when diluted in 5 gallons.
