The girlfriend says it's her favorite beer I've made. Even better than my English Chocolate Porter I asked?? Yes... make this again. !!

So I upped the grain bill a bit from the original recipe:

5 lb White Wheat Malt
4 lb Pilsner 2 Row
1 lb Flaked Wheat
1 lb Honey Malt

I added citra to the original recipe and used yeast nutrients:

0.50 oz Tettnang 60 min

0.50 oz Tettnang 10 min
0.50 oz Citra 10 min
1.00 tsp Yeast Nutrient 10 min
Zest of 4 Navel Oranges 10 min

The end result is delicious! It's rich, smooth, cloudy, and refreshingly citrusy.
Up front it reminds me of a Bluemoon with an orange slice in it... then the extra alcohol kick and the honey leave an aftertaste similar to Merry Monks.
ABV came to 6.5%

I also used my newly constructed stir plate and made a starter with White Labs WLP300. Started bubbling under an hour!

Fermented for 18 days then cold crashed for 24 hours before kegging.

Very.. Awesome.. Beer.

Next batch this summer I will try a little bit more Honey Malt to see if I can get a sweeter aftertaste.

Let me know if anyone tries this variation!

[Just a tip, if you follow these exact steps use a large fermenter... my carboy sadly lost a bunch of wort due to pretty violent foaming through the blow off hose in the first 24 hours... lame]

looking to try your recipe, sounds good..how long did you you mash and what temp?

thanks

Mashed at 152 for an hour then sparged with 168 degree water for about 15 minutes. I would try the mash at 154 though to shoot for a sweeter finish and bring out more of the honey flavor. I'm still drinking off my keg after two weeks and it's still really good.

Also not really my recipe. I just varied the owner of the thread's original one to get a higher ABV and play with citra which I hadn't used before. Gotta give credit where it's due!!

Awesome! But mine never last that long I like to stick to tradition and make this primarily as a "hey we're having a party in two weeks, please bring beer" recipe. Usually gone in one night. But I will make this as a summer thirst quencher and it still doesn't last very long

Just curious, no one is using rice hulls? No stuck mash??

Yeah rice hulls are always a good idea when using wheat, oats, rye, or anything that can gum up the mash

So, I brewed this a month back and cracked open the first bottle today. It tasted like it would be great, except there was about twice as much beer as there should have been per volume, and had a an unpleasant bitterness in the aftertaste.

This is my first shot at homebrewing, so I probably made some silly mistake, but I'm wondering if anyone can diagnose what I did so I don't do it again.

I made the extract version with .425 lbs pale DME, and .66 lbs wheat DME, and 1/5 the amount of prescribed hops and crystal 20L, and 4/5 of an orange worth of zest.

It fermented for about two weeks at temperatures between 60-70 degrees F, then I bottled it with about 3 tbs of honey 3 weeks ago.

The carbonation is great, it looks just like it ought to from the pictures, it's got a hint of honey in there, but it just tastes outrageously heavy. It's legitimately much better when I add about 1/3 volume of water to it. There's some unpleasant bitterness too, but that could just be the normal amount of beer bitterness multiplied by whatever caused this to be so thick.

Any thoughts on what I did wrong?

What did your Original and Final gravities end up being? Is it too strong in the alcohol or is it too big of a body/texture?
