I am brewing the Litehaus Bully Wheat clone and decided to mix up the hops some. I really like citrus notes in some of the beers i drink and I think they would only accentuate the refreshing nature of a light wheat beer.
6# 2 row
2.5# white wheat
.5# flaked wheat
.25# honey malt
70 minute boil
60 min .25oz magnum
5 min .125oz citra
5 min .125oz sorachi ace
dry hop .125 citra on day 7 for 7 days
dry hop .125 sorachi ace " " "
I may add one ounce of lemon peel at day 7 but I may not as I want to see how the lemon of the sorachi comes through
According to hopville.com this will give me 14.4 IBU's which should be about right for a beer of this type.
I have thought about bumping the dry hop to .25oz each.
