I went to my local homebrew shop, but since I'm still a newb, I bought 8 oz of Caramalt instead of Carahell (I didn't see carahell, so I figured I must have written it down wrong).

Will using caramalt totally throw this off or is it a decent enough idea to just go ahead with it?

Similar question, I read somewhere that Carahell is just a brand name of Caramel Malt.

Could this: http://store.homebrewheaven.com/germ...alt-p2036.aspx

be used in replacement of Carahell? This seems to be the only Caramel Malt they carry.

Thanks!

Very smooth, tasty wheaty flavor with subtle banana tones in the background. Gonna have to try and hid these away for at least another week or two for my own safety!
It's only been 2 weeks, and I believe I have 12 bottles out of 50 left.

Luckily, myself and everyone who tried it was a big fan. This will definitely be constantly stocked this summer.

If youre only using 8 ozs i cant imagine it would make that much of a difference, and it sounds to me like it would be a very tasty addition!

I just brewed this tonight. I followed the recipe exactly so I'm sure it's going to be great!

I think I timed this one perfectly; it will be conditioned and chilled just in time for the summer!

We brewed this one Friday night using Wyeast 3068. I have it fermenting at 72 degrees using a blowoff tube. It was furiously bubbling for the first 36 hours. It has since slowed down. Is this normal for this yeast and this beer? One other question is regarding the Fermometors when being used with a plastic bucket. Is it accurate regarding the actual fermentation temp?

Based off of the comments in this thread I'm really looking forward to trying this one!

I read the directions at that link but it doesn't mention errors when using a plastic fermenter instead of a glass carboy.

Thanks for the help though!

just picked up my ingredients today, no Briess Bavarian Wheat DME, so I just got the Muntons Wheat DME, 6# of it. I also switched to 3056 Bavarian Wheat Blend, can't wait to brew
