1 pound of honey malt if you are going to leave the yeast as-is.

If you want a great summer beer change the yeast to US-05 and add the orange peel at flame-out.

Smoked malt takes over every beer it's in so when you go that way be prepared to make a true smoked beer.

How many volumes of CO2 have you guys been shooting for on this one? I'll be kegging a batch tonight or tomorrow and I see German Wheat listed at 3.3-4.5 volumes but thought I'd double check.

I brewed this up this past sunday. I had the worst brew day ever. For some reason my mash temp was off and was around 165 for the first 10 minutes until I got it down to 154. Then I ripped my bag (biab) on the rtd probe. I ended up putting a spare piece of sheer voile in a bucket and draining it all into that and then rinsing all the grain from my ekeggle.

I wanted to see what the OG was today and its 1.022 3 days after pitching (fermenting around 62 degrees). Hope it doesnt finish too high with my high mash temps. Smells really good though and the hydro sample definitly had that hefe clove taste to it.

Thanks for sharing the recipe.

No worries Bink. That tiny "pre-mash-out" won't hurt a thing. Very little conversion will be accomplished at that temperature for that short of a time. Give it time and it'll finish.

Please follow this up with further posts and pictures if possible.

You are very welcome for the recipe. It's truly my pleasure.

BTW- those nightmare brew days frequently produce some amazing beers. Don't be surprised if it's a winner winner chicken dinner.

I just took another gravity reading at 2.5 weeks in the fermentor. Its at 1.012 which is fine by me. Its gonna sit in the primary anyways for another couple of weeks until I float a keg for it so im not worried about it. Gravity sample is good and has a great clover character but not overpowering. Should be awesome carbed up!

Thanks again!

How does this beer finish so low? Beersmith is giving me estimated FG levels of 1.017. With a high mash like this. What is everyone finishing at?

US-06 can attenuate up to 86%. 14% residual sugar from the OG of 1.055 leaves an FG of 1.0077.

None of the numbers appear out of line to me. But I could be wrong.
