If I steal your recipe I'm going to drop the S from the second word in the name.

Quick newb question - if your just steeping 5lbs of flaked wheat, are you getting fermentables from that? I thought you needed to add some 2 or 6 row for enzymes to convert the starches.

Could do this as a PM

I would do this as a partial mash at minimum. The Wheat malet and flaked add too much to the body of the beer to risk missing out.

As for Flaked Wheat requiring 2 or 6-row enzymes for conversion? That sounds right.

I've done a similar wheat just using 6lbs of straight Munton's Dry Wheat Extract and you can steep a half pound of carapils if you want more body.

I tapped my AG rendition of this a couple of days ago -- lowered pale malt by .5 lb, used slightly lower % williamette, & added an oz. of sweet orange peel to last 30 mins of boil

did a long secondary

you were right -- swmbo is a huge fan
thx for the inspiration



edit: included pic -- lighting sucks

Glad she like it. Looks like it turned out nice.

When you get down to the last 50% of that keg, the beer should clear up nice. That's a great looking beer goblet for that style.
