CrookedTail,
Going to try your recipe this weekend. I just love wheat beers. I see that you keg, but do you have any idea of how much priming sugar to add for bottling? Also, have you ever tried making it with DME?

Thanks for posting,
Dan

I'd probably go with 2/3 cup of corn sugar for bottling. As for using DME, other than your color being a little lighter you shouldn't notice a difference.

I'm glad there's interest in this beer. It's a favorite of mine.

CROOKEDTAIL are you using hop pellets or leaf hops? I was thinking about brewing your recipe this week, and this would really help

Thanks

I use hop pellets.

Just brewed this beer and I'm excited to try it! I'm alittle worried as my OG was 1.042 instead of 1.052. I hope that it doesn't effect the awesomeness of this beer though.

Not sure how that could happen, but I wouldn't worry about it.

Just brewed this and put it in the keg. OG was right on at 1.051, but fermentation stuck and I ended up at 1.017 at the end.

I was surprised using the US-05 that it got that taste I always equate with Belgian beers. Maybe that will change a little after it sits on the gas.

How long, and at what temp did you ferment it? Honey takes longer to ferment, which might explain the gravity reading. Also, US-05 should ferment clean. If you're getting esters, then it fermented at way too high a temp.

Total fermentation, 16 days. It was stuck at 1.018 since the first 7 days.

Temp is a weak part in my brewing process. My best locale is a dark inner closet with the door cracked to let the house heating-cooling system get to it. Not sure of the temp exactly, but it has been warmer than usual this week.

How I long for a basement.

16 days isn't necessarily ample time for any beer to fully ferment and clean up after itself, let alone a beer with some honey in it. I let most of my beers sit for 3-4 weeks before going to a secondary.
