hey bm did you get a chance to look at that pic i posted? it looks a little lighter colored than yours but i did use dry yeast, any seems like the crazy fermentation has subsided but the krausen hasn't fallen, it was very vigourous but didnt last long maybe also bc of dry yeast

Yeah I saw it. Looks like you were on the verge of a real blow off.

If the sides are gooped up with yeast sludge, give the carboy a slight rocking to knock that stuff back into the beer. Sometime enough yeast can beach itself on the wall to cause fermentation to slow down.

BM, me again with another question, I ordered some isinglass to use on this batch but I am not sure how to to use it, but i may not use it bc i was reading that you shouldn't use finings on this style of beer, but anyway it would still be nice to know how to use it. it is just a pouch of jelly looking stuff

I'd say skip it on this batch of brew. The wheat should give a nice cloudy color. Not sure how it would affect the flavor.


Speaking of flavor, i tasted a small bottle of this last night, three days after bottling. Still flatter than a 12 year old girl, but tasted delicious! can't wait for this one to carb

I am giving this a run this weekend and am ordering from AHS. This is my first non-boxed attempt at an extract.

I am using the following(from a previous post ):

3 lbs. Wheat DME
2 lbs. Extra Lght DME
8 oz. Caramel 10°L
8 oz. Flaked Wheat
4 oz. Caravienne malt
1 oz Williamette hops

I am assuming that I should combine the flaked wheat,carmel, and Caravienne malts in a single grain bag and steep those ?
Does this recipe sound right ( it differs from the extract version that BierMuncher posted) ?

Thanks a bunch!
Larry

Biermuncher, for the sake of Begin authenticity, would using Belgin 2-row make enough of a difference? Or just stick with the US?

Go with whatever you have. This is not a strict style...but more for public enjoyment.
