I am mashing at 154* my 5 gallon version of this now--
60/40 wheat & two row,
saaz to bitter (20 ibu),
2oz of chamomile at 60 min and probably flameout addition too [edit: 0.6 oz at 5 min / store didnt have scale and I eyeballed way low].
1# of good honey at flameout.
and wb06 dry yeast
cheers!

I think WB-06 throws a lot of banana/clove esters. I've got some in my closet that I've never used, but I've read things about it. That might be great, but definitely not what I was shooting for when I made this. With honey and chamomile, I think the neutral yeast wouldn't interfere.

OTOH, I would love to try it with the WB-06. Very interesting. Good Luck.

I have not used wb06 either. I might split- ferment the batch with a second yeast; I have US05, Windsor and Notty.

I brewed this the other day, the mods being that I used ahtanum, wlp005, and I added a half pound of honey malt and only 12 oz. of honey. Obviously I also adjusted the recipe to my 80% efficiency. I picked up a Wolavers Wildflower Wheat to get an idea of a commercial example and after pulling a hydro sample its awesome. This may definitely become a stape in my rotation and I may do a second batch as soon as I can. By the way I got my chamomile off amazon for 5 bucks.

Now THIS is what I'm talkin about. Shot a 98 today, hit the majority of my fairways, had a few pars, and came home to this...

Thank you passedpawn! I'll definitely be brewing this again!

What a way to end a long day!

That looks perfect! Oh, and way to break 100 (I'll never do it, I'm a hack, wutever ).

I'm very curious as to what a variation of this brew would taste like if it was hybridized with a Wit. Maybe some orange zest added in after fermentation.
I might try something like that pretty soon.

also, how do you feel about honey malt instead of honey?

Reason: had a question

If you want orange, just do a wit or American Wheat. That will be too much for this beer I think.

Honey malt would be very interesting. I've used it a couple of times. That stuff smells exactly like honey when the malt is fresh!

This might be a silly question, but where do you buy chamomile?

I got mine at a local place called Palm Harbor Whole Foods. It's a smallish grocery store for very particular (!) people. Loads of organic stuff, etc. I'll bet you have a place near you like that.

I'll bet some of the high-end tea places also carry whole chamomile flowers. There's a place called Teavana that you might have nearby. I've gotten it online (for my tea-drinking habit) at:

You can also grow your own, fairly easily. Look for German Chamomile seeds.
