.0625#(1 0z) bonlauder munich(dont laugh!)ha
1/8 tsp gypsum in mash(optional)

10 g(.3 0z) belgian organic cascades @60 Min.
7 g(.25 oz) " " @ flameout

I mashed at about 153 deg. .Did a 5 min. sparge with 170 deg water Boiled with2.2 gal water.Added half the wheat extract last 15 min, turned out to be a great maltiness and very mild bittering, but giving a wheat beer a maltier approach.Good flavored wheat beer good aroma darker in color but good tasting givin that 5 weeks bottle conditioning.
Final gravity is 1.012. Fermented low temp so no typical bannana flavors and didnt notice clove either.This wasnt estery at all really,was pretty clean with a nice maltiness.Good medium fully body also.

For a even lighter tasting beer,( this was med -full bodied) i wouldnt be surprised if you dropped half- 1 pound of wheat extract malt and an oz each of the carmel malts that it would still be a great beer.I also wouldnt mind trying another quarter to half pound munich in the mash while dropping some of the wheat extract malt. Dont be afraid to round these oz of malt up or down though,i only used this technically from my scale which isnt exactly accurate anyway.Its not like i hit a 1.02 final gravity or something,this yeast attenuated pretty well.

this is after quite a while but still tastey. Grainy pic( thought it would be smaller which it should) massive head which i couldnt fit all into this 24 oz hefe glass from a 16 oz bottle,its got a good maltyness for a wheat also a nice sweetness for a wheat. It is fairly clear despite this terrible pic. Im pretty happy how this ages as well considering. This size batch is perfect for a 2 gallon fermenter.
