Im going to leave it in the primary for the duration and then bottle condition. Any suggestions on amount of time to leave in a primary only?
When its finished

Use a hydrometer to take readings. Myself I usually take a reading after 2 weeks. I bottle at 3 weeks usually. But again I take readings so I know when its done.

Readings should be done in succession. Take 2 readings 2-3 days apart after fermentation seems to be over. If the readings are the same, you can bottle. *Only if you don't have any stuck fermentation issues.

.66 tsp wheat flour (5 min)

S-04 or WB-06

Haven't decided which yeast I'll use for this. The fact that I'll be fermenting in the high 60s makes me wary of the WB-06... don't want a banana-chamomile beer :S
Was this for a 5gal BIAB?

Considering making this in a few weeks. (all grain--5 gallon)

I have not had great experience with honey flavor coming from a flameout addition, what are the thoughts on adding .5# honey malt (and dropping down .5# of wheat) and adding 1# of honey shortly after high krausen?

Also, what is the use of the flour? I have never seen that present in a recipe.

Cheers,
Saul

The honey comes through great as the recipe is shown. I wouldn't change it.

The flour is to give the beer permanent haze as it is a wheat beer. Since you're not using hefe or wit yeast it tends to clear after a while.

I added flour to ensure it was cloudy. I didn't want this beer to end up clear, and I heard this trick on some podcast a while back. It definately ended up with a nice golden haze.

I ended up brewing this awhile back, I didn't use the flour, and added a touch more hops, and a very small aroma addition at flameout.

I like it quite a bit, however I think the next batch I am going to go with a little bit of honey malt, and a little less chamomile.

I am planning on doing this batch tomorrow, and will let you know how it turns out!

I brewed a partial mash version of the recipe on Saturday -

3.5 # of two row
2 # of wheat
2 # of Wheat DME @ 15 min
1.5 # if Honey @ 5 min

1 oz Vanguard (5.4%AA) @ 60 min
2 oz Chamomile @ 60 min

Re-hydrated Safeale-05

I completely blew the mashing by hitting the low to mid 160's so god know what this'll taste like, or how much sugar I extracted, but the smell of this thing was AMAZING!

Since I screwed up early in the process by mashing too hot I didn't take readings - maybe get a gravity reading when I bottle just to see how low it gets. Either way, I'm stoked to taste this. It was bubbling like a fiend all day yesterday and barely slowed this morning.

Just tapped the keg. Made it as is no modifications and it is fantastic!! Balance is great, chamomole is spot on IMO. Can definitely taste the honey and has a sweet finish even though FG was 1.010. Outstanding recipe! Winner winner chicken dinner!

Great! Those are the words I used to describe it too. How about a pic of your creation.

I was inspired by this recipe and made a similar brew which turned out fantastic. I have to agree with everyone else, that honey really stands out in this beer. It finished out at 1.010 and surprisingly it is still a very prominent flavour. The chamomile and honey work wonders together.
