Brewed this exactly 3 weeks ago and drinking it tonight! And itís ready!!
This has a KILLER lemon finish from the Sorachi Ace Hops and the cut lemon peel and orange @ flame out
This is for a 12 gallon batch All Grain
Mash Thin!

11# 2 row
11# wheat
1# C15L
1.5# rice hulls

Mash @ 152* for 60

I mashed in w/ 9.5 gallons (like I said thin) @ 164* to rest @ 152* for 60 Min

Citra .5 oz for 60
Sorachi Ace .5 oz for 15
Sorachi Ace 1.5 oz for 5

Add 1 oz cut dried lemon peel and 1 oz sweet orange peel @ flame out!

I used WLP029 German Ale/ KŲlsch Yeast fermented @ 66 and I am LOVING IT!!!

I love this beer. Best I've brewed in a looong time..OK OK OK only I've brewed in a loooooooong time!
Cheers
Jay

Definitely brewing this soon, I've got 4 oz of Sorachi Ace I need to get rid of, I'll probably sub out the Citra bittering addition with Sorachi.

I just made a citra wheat. Quite a bit different tho. I hopped it up with 4 oz leaf citra. Smells great but who knows.

I just polished off a keg of Citra Wheat (fairly hoppy at 40IBU) - my wife said it was the best beer I've ever made. (Previously that title went to Denny's Bourbon Vanilla Imperial Porter - apparently she has eclectic tastes).

Anyway, I was thinking of subbing in a bit of Sorachi Ace the next time I brew it to get a bit of lemony finish - and also thinking of using either American Wheat or Kolsch yeast instead of 1056. Good to know yours turned out well!

I really dont see any reason why not to bitter w/ Ace as well. MMMmmm I'm loving this beer!

Came in at 1.052 OG and FG 1.012 (Fermenter 1) to 1.014 (Fermenter 2)

Cheers

Sounds like a great recipe and I have a bunch of Sorachi that I need to put to use (also have Citra). My go to wheat is a NG Cracked Wheat clone but this sounds tasty so I will give it a shot when I brew my next wheat beer.
