Well what I want to do is use a yeast that won't overpower the delicate side to it like a hefeweizen yeast. Brewing it for BMC's. Anyone else?

Opps excuse me for posting again but got an idea that would better the recipe. Switch the ratio'd to this


Wheat 4 lbs
Rye. 2 lbs
2 Row.1 lb
PIlsner 1 lb


I like the way that looks what is your overall thoughts?

With all that wheat/rye, make sure you have some rice hulls on hand. For a clean subtle yeast I really like 2565 Kolsch, but I'm sure 1010 will do a fine job.

I wouldn't go over 50-60% wheat/rye of your total grist. This recipe change puts you at 75%. Honestly I'd just brew your original recipe. Also the rice hulls are a good idea. I've never had to use them personally, but it can't hurt.
