I don't think it is a coincidence that Weyermann is now selling oak smoked wheat malt. That makes the style a lot easier to brew and you will see more and more of them.

Those of us that purpose built a smoker to smoke our own malt will have to hope that the rustic-ness and uniqueness of our home smoked produces a better beer, justifying the effort, or go the easy route.

I know in a recent interview Lauren Salazar at New Belgium said she wants to start putting out a gratzer so I guess we'll see how these commercial versions stack up.

There is nothing about it in the article. Article was just an addition to this great news.

I know about it from polish sources... So, if you want to read in polish, no problem I can give you a proper link to this information. It was information given by Polish Homebrewers Association.

Altough, this article does not mention about it, I've read that it's author is responsible for making a description of Grodziskie in BJCP - so somewhat it's connected with all case.

DC Brau just did a grätzer bier with Bluejacket in DC. It was a good summer beer.

Had a good Grodziskie brew day. Used 100% Weyermann Oak Smoked Wheat malt. It was only my second BIAB. Still experimenting mashing with induction. (Had only used induction for boil before.) Dough-in at 105°, held for 30 min and then did a slow 45 minute ramp up to 155°. Held that for another 45 minutes. Pour over sparge to hit volume. Little over a two hour boil bittered with Tettnanger to 22 IBU's. Efficiency was a little better than planned, so hit 1.034 OG. Pitched with Pacman yeast around 9:00pm. Fast start with a healthy looking fermentation going this morning.

Probably the biggest style mistake I made was not doing anything with water chemistry. Also a little worried about clarity. I used Supper Moss, but it went into the fermenter cloudy (like other wheat beers.) Hoping that will clear up in the finished beer.

GrogNerd, you pop up in a lot of these Grodziskie threads. What do you (or anyone else) think are my chances of this turning out well? Any suggestions for the rest of the process? I'm a German, married to a Polack. Not that she knows the style, but I'd still like to get it right.

It's an easy style, a SMaSH, so it's hard to screw up. Nothing really special about brewing this as opposed to any other beer, other than an unusual base malt.

If you don't normally mess with your water, I wouldn't worry about it here. If you do, I still wouldn't worry
