I am a noob and while racking into secondary found that my recent hefeweizen (though it needs a few more weeks of conditioning) to be rather heavy and almost over bodied. I have not yet learned how to use a hydrometer (which I plan to do on my next brew). I wonder if it is possible to add water during the fermentation or at the time of kegging to make it lighter and more refreshing (if it does not mellow out by that time). To make matters worse I squeezed the hop bags right before pitching the yeast. It made my brew more bitter than I wanted.
I used an all grain recipe of five lbs unmalted wheat and 10 lbs 2 row malt and 3 lbs oatmeal (fully cooked before mashing). I now know that was too much
Thanks for any help or advice.
