Looks really good. Thanks for including a partial mash version.

I have a 3 gallon Rubbermaid MLT. Will it fit 6.5 pounds of grain? I've never tried that much at a time. Anybody know?

That seems doable. But go search for "green bay rackers calculator" and on that page will be a "can I mash in it" calculator.

Sorry for not including a link, I'm posting from my phone.

Looks like it will work.

Would your recommended yeast substitution be the WLP300? I've had bad luck with dry yeast.

300 for more banana/clove like a german hefe, 320 for a clean american wheat

Which would you recommend as a substitute for the dry yeast in your recipe? I'm worried the banana clove would overshadow the honey/orange.

Okay that question is a bit ambiguous. If you mean you're looking for a substitute that is also dry, I'd say anything neutral like US-05 or nottingham.

Sorry, I was looking for a liquid substitute. I went with WLP300. I figure if the orange/honey gets overshadowed by the banana/clove, I'll still have a tasty hefe. If I used the American hefe yeast, I'd worry about there being not enough flavor.

I'll let you know how it turns out. I'm brewing as we speak.

I used wyeast 10-10 and bottled this on 11/7. It is pure goodness.

Great recipe!

Just realized how quickly this one can be consumed. I brewed it in preparation for a trip I'm taking in the middle of next month... would you recommend bottling to keep some of the hefe character around longer? I usually keg, but I realize that a lot of yeast will go to the bottom after a few weeks. I could always bottle from the keg...


What do you think?

Just brewed this up today. I slightly changed the grain schedule just to have the beer finish at 5%, and then since Little Cuties, Clementines, are now out I juiced a pint of Clementines and added it to the end of the boil. Can't wait to see how it turns out!
