Hello all...I'm a noob
to the home brewing scene and I've settled on partial mashing with 2 Mr. Beer fermenters right now. I'm only three batches in experience-wise and my carpool buddy is on vacation. So I turn to you fine folks for advice.
I pulled a recipe from BeerTools for a raspberry wheat. Scaling it down to the Mr. Beer size (2.11 gals), and adapting to what was available at the store, here's what I got:
.68 lbs American 2-row
2 lbs Briess Light Wheat DME
.03 lbs Crystal 20
1 lb Flaked Wheat
.4 oz German Tettnanger pellets (5.5% AA) - 60 min
.2 oz Palisade pellets (6.5% AA) - 15 min
Yeast: Danstar Windsor Dry Yeast (I'm not to keen on buying 5 gallons worth of liquid yeast)
.5 lbs Raspberries will be added during secondary
So, what do you think? Will it turn out okay?
Also, I've never used the flaked wheat before. Can I just steep it like I do the Crystal and 2-Row? I've heard things of starches. Any advice on the fruit?
Typical noob, many questions....
