Have you tried step mashing this recipe? Was wondering if it would change the whole beer or would come out close the same. Seems a little light on the grain to me so was wondering if stepped would it render more eficiency and possibly stronger beer and darker color.

I haven't tried a step mash with this recipe. I am already getting over 80% eff. and this beer comes out at almost 6%ABV as it is. (5.87% to be exact)

I am sure if you did a step mash you'd get a little bit more conversion. I think the color would pretty much remain the same though. If you were going for a stronger ABV without increasing the color much, add a 1/2lb-3/4lb of corn sugar. That may dry it out a tad, but if you did a step mash, just raise the sacc. rest to 156 degrees.

Figured out what happened. When i baught the grains they left out the white wheat malt. I thaught the grains were light. I should of checked the reciept before i left the store. Next time ill have them put the grains in seperate bags so i can double check.

Sorry to hear that allclene. I am sure it will still come out drinkable, not so much a wheat anymore, but an orange infused pale ale.

Still keep us posted and let us know how it comes along.

Sounds like it is comming along nicely. I am sure the hoppyness (word?) will mellow out with some time. Without any late hope additions, the orange should really shine though.

Awesome! Yeah it does smell fanstastic. I know even in my fermentation chamber I could smell some orange.

Got this one in the keg and it is somewhat hoppier than hoped and doesnt have that wheat notes it should have probably due to the grain that was missing. Its drinkable though gonna redo this one real soon and with all the grain this time
