This is the first batch of this recipe I have made so I would like to make sure I don't screw it up at thios point.
I fermented mine kind of low and the krausen didn't even THINK about falling for week and a half. I'm doing a second batch and I'm going to wait till it looks like it is starting to clear before moving it.

I'm looking to do partial mash version of this beer. I put together these ingredients and was wondering if anyone could comment on whether they think this will produce something close to the all grain version. I would be putting the DWE in at the beginning of the boil and adding the LME just before flameout. Your thoughts are appreciated!

3.33 lb extra light LME
1.00 lb DWE

2.00 lb Wheat Malt
1.75 lb Pale Malt (2 Row)
0.50 lb Crystal Malt
0.50 lb Wheat, flaked
0.25 lb Caravienne malt

1.00 oz Williamette Hops

1 Pkgs White Labs WLP400

I made this again a couple of weeks ago. This is mt 3rd all grain batch. This time I got the mash temp right on the money at 154 deg. F. Pre-boil gravity was ~1.04, post-boil was 1.052. I didn't use a Belgian yeast, I had some US-05 on hand so I used that, I measured the gravity after about 2 weeks and it was 1.010. It's clearing in the secondary right now and I plan on bottling it this wekend. I'm looking forward to it in about a month or so. I'll post again to publish the results. Wish me luck!

This will be a completely different beer with US-05. Probably an awesome beer still, but very different.

I'm hoping I'll like it. I screwed up my first batch by mashing it waaay to hot. Well, it was my first all grain attempt after all. The beer still came out drinkable it was just a little on the tangy side I'm guessing due to the yeast. I used WLP410 - White Labs Premium Series Belgian Wit II and because I mashed it too hot the F.G. only went down to 1.020. I have much higher hopes this time.

Making this right now! Its a great Sunday morning here in FL and My wife is excited to try this one. I am about 30 mins into the mash. It is sitting a little warmer, at 158.

Can anyone tell me if I will get alot of off flavors with a ferment at 68-70 rather than at 65?
