To everyone else, are you seeing a hazy beer as your results or do your brews look like what BM posted?

Thanks!
If you're referring to the pic in post #9, that beer is actually pretty hazy. Wheat beers in general are going to be hazy (or beers with flaked oats as well).

My other beers get crystal clear though the use of Whirfloc, gelatin and cold crashing.

I'm going to brew a 10 gallon batch of this tomorrow. I've never done any wheat mashes before, I have a barley crusher, do I crush the wheat any different than the pale malt? Or do i just dump everything through my barley crusher like normal and do a normal mash and batch sparge? Thanks!

Crush the wheat malt. Not the flaked wheat. You will need to set the gap narrower for wheat malt. It is a smaller kernel. I usually will double crush wheat malt, with a slight narrowing of the rollers the second time through. Flaked wheat just gets tossed into the mash tun directly.

Anyone try this with a little clear Belgium Candi Sugar? I was thinking about adding 8oz to the original recipe.

Thoughts?

my thought would be to make sure the sugar doesn't destroy the body of the beer, rendering it thin and cidery. if i were going to make an 8 oz sugar addition, i would mash it at the higher end of the range (156 was the high end if i recall).

Holy fermentation Batman!

This stuff is violent!! Brewday went pretty well. OG was a little light, but I ended up with 5.6 gallons of wort. So I guess I'll have more beer!

@Biermuncher,
Have you tried Midwests Grand Cru kit? It is one of my all time favorite beers. The wife loves it too.
