I did a variation, but it is really good. Probably my favorite wheat brew I have done so far. It reminds me of summer ale off the tap (2 for 1) at Chilis from way back when


11G batch @ 75% efficiency; 1.051 OG

10lbs pils
7 lbs wheat malt
2lbs flaked wheat
1lbs carapils

tett 89g 4.7% aa (60min)
2oz lemon zest (15min)
hallertau hers 40g 3% (5min)
tett 60g 4.7% (5min)
4g grains of paradise (5min)

WLP 051
152F mash

I just bottled this today, and think I had an issue with my yeast or efficiency. Post boil gravity was 1.030 (seems fairly low considering the OP's was 1.051) and Final Gravity at bottling was 1.019.

This just hit me. They were adjusting the grain mill when I was doing my shopping at normally. I'll bet the grains didn't get crushed enough.

Brewed this 3 weeks ago and just opened the first bottle, absolutely amazing. Used WLP020 instead of Wyeast 1007, but that's the only thing different I did in the recipe, taste is spot on. Thank you for the recipe.

I brewed this recipe on Memorial Day. 2 days later my fermenter lid blew off sometime during the day while at work (what a joy). I sanitized and replaced the lid and did 2 more days in primary. I then racked to secondary. Kegging tomorrow. Will pull the first pint shortly thereafter. I will report back. Really hoping this didn't get ruined when the lid blew off.

Relax...

Wheat beers tend to blow off the lid. There's plenty of Co2 in there and enough alcohol
to take care of anything that blows in...

Mine will be ready end of the month. Enjoy...

I make my Sam Adams summer ale with wlp008. That is supposed to be the yeast they use but wlp001 tastes about the same.

My brew is finally ready for tasting.

Alterations to the recipe:
wyeast 1056 American Ale
2 cups DME (to make up for terrible initial gravity.)
Acid malt to adjust ph.

Comparison between commercial and homebrew resulted in:
homebrew sweeter
homebrew a bit more bitter
commercial crisper
commercial has more paradise flavors
commercial yellower.

So I'm going to swap the dark wheat for the light to adjust color. And switch back to wlp008.

What should I adjust to reduce the sweetness? I was dryer (1.008) than the 1.010 commercial FG.
Also, why do we have flaked wheat and dextrine malt. Don't both do the same thing ?
