Brewed this Wednesday
My 14yr old son, many time Assistant brewer, and his novice friend were on the mash paddle taking turns with stirring duty. Never used Kent Goldings before, very sweet smell, like candy. The color of the wort is deeeeeeep red, the extra 1lb of wheat did its job.
This is gonna end up around 5.5% abv and about 15 IBU so really low on the bitterness. Aside from the color it ought to be mild, crisp and easy drinking for all.
I used Kent Goldings hops at 5.5 alpha. Inspiration was the deep red color color and mass appeal, we'll see in a few weeks. Ought to be unique.
2# German Wheat
1oz KG 60min
1oz GK 30min
will dryhop with 1oz more KG after primary is done
Pitched dry with SafAle S-05, vid is from yesterday, today the krausen is 2" thick on both of them and furious churning and bubbling, love this hobby
note on the cider next to it;
Been trying to perfect a sweet hard cider, 5g AJ, 2# bump of sugar, some yeast nutrient and a dose of Nottingham, getting real close to another favorite I think. It tops out around 7.5%, every tester so far has said WOW.
