All that to say, this is a beer that is to be enjoyed young, especially if you're going to keg it. You may even consider keeping your keg on its side as you transport it in order to keep more yeast in suspension.

I'll be sure to do that. We'll have this hooked up to a jockey box so I imagine that the yeast will not settle out completely for a weekend trip?

I have been meaning to use some in an IPA but think it more appropriate in a Hef. Keep us posted and I'll upload pics of your glorious recipe straight form the campsite! Thank god for HOMEBREWTALK Mobile APP!
Oh yeah, HBT app is awesome!

Looking forward to the results.

The yeast might settle out quite a bit but the transporting of the keg will certainly kick everything back up into suspension.

But you don't really want the yeast to settle out for this style. It's in the name: hefe (yeast) weizen (wheat beer.) The special strain of yeast adds a lot of the flavor profile.

Now if you leave the keg alone cold for long enough without disturbing it you will end up with very clear beer. It's then become a krystalweizen or krystalweiss.

I might just reverse the CO2 into the Outlet side to send all the goodies back into the beer rather than the bottom of the corny. Tipping it is just as simple yet not as fun. Sounds like I know what my morning ritual will be. IMO--I really don't think it will last past the first day.

Going to brew this for out by the pool this summer, would you recommend using rice hulls? I'm using a 10 gal Gatorade cooler with a stainless sink hose. Thanks, looking forward to this one for my 2nd AG and first wheat.

Yup. Any time I use adjuncts I use rice hulls just to be safe. 0.5 - 1.0# should do fine.

His was fermented a touch cooler, with some ups and downs during the day. For this kind of beer, the fluctuations may have actually improved it by throwing some additional funky goodness into the mix. It will be cool to compare the two with fermentation temps being the only variable. We each did a 13 day primary, and it's only been 6 days since bottling, but it's already carbed up nicely.
Did you end up doing a side-by-side tasting? I'm quite interested.

I made a batch of this a couple of months ago and it was by far the best tasting beer I have made to date! Not to mention came out at 6.5% abv. My second runner up is a blackberry wheat I made a couple months prior. Kudos to Reno eNVy for the recipe!!! If you haven't brewed this one yet I strongly suggest you try it! If your a fan of wheat beers you won't be disappointed!

I changed it up a little and it came out wonderful. Added a little more zest (7-8 decent sized oranges) and used Wyeast 3638.

Those sound like good alterations. I'm really glad it turned out so well for you.

And thanks for the props!
