*Peach Preperation - Peal and pit peaches until you get 7 to 8 lbs. Place the peaches on the stove on medium heat, stir and mash with your hands until the heat gets to you. Switch to a stirring utinsel and bring the temperature to 170 - 180 stirring constantly. Place the pot of peaches into a ice bath for 15 to 20 minutes. Add the peaches to the primary fermentor, right on top of the yeast cake and all.

I ferment everything in glass, this could happen with buckets as well . I had the peaches clog the air lock and blew the bung and air lock out of the carboy... Needless to say, Peaches and beer everywhere.

I have tried peach wheat before, tho the recipe was a bit different:
2-row pale: 4lbs
Wheat malt: 5lbs
Flaked wheat: 1.5lbs

I pitched it onto 6lbs of frozen peaches, and while it smelled nice for the first few days/week the peach flavor fell flat by the time it had finished bottle conditioning. If I decide to try it again I have heard that adding apricots will help maintain the peach body thru fermentation.

And if you wanted to up the gravity, I would suggest using honey. Tho I say that because I am not a fan of drying out my wheat beers with sugar or rice extract. It would be tricky to pull off without knocking the peach out completely, but it sounds like a fun challenge!
