I have been looking to do this extract wheat recipe from John Palmer's book and I want to know if anyone has recommendations on any grains I could steep prior to starting the extract.
3.3 lbs Wheat LME 60 min
3.3 lbs. Wheat LME at knockout
0.5 oz. Sterling Hops (7%) 60 min
0.75 oz. Liberty Hops (4%) 30 min
1 oz Liberty (I am assuming the last few minutes for aroma hops. His book does not say when this is done.
Yeast: Nottingham Dry yeast
Thus, could I improve on this recipe by using some steeping of flaked wheat or other grains? If so, how much, what temp and how long?
Also, if anyone has a copy of Palmer's 3rd edition this recipe is on page 215. Perhaps you can tell when the last 1 oz of Liberty hops should be added.
This is also the first recipe where I have encountered the term knockout. Not quite sure what this might mean other than adding the remaining extract after the boil. I think he implies 10 minutes after the boil has been done. If anyone can tell me if I am reading this correctly or not that would be great.
Thanks everyone for all of your help...
