Hey guys,

I'm not new to mead, but I'm brand new to beer. I've got an American
Wheat cooking in the closet now, but I had an idea for a braggot as
my next brew. What do you think of this recipe?

Wheat Braggot

1 can Wheat Malt extract
3 lbs Honey
1 oz. Hallertauer hops
Ale yeast

Target OG: 1.055
Yield: 5 gallons

30 min boil in 1.5 gal of water with extract, oz hop addition @ 30
min, oz hop addition @ 5 min. Remove from heat and stir in honey.
Cool to temp and pitch ale yeast.

thanks guys!

Should work, good choice for the hops IMHO.

How did this work out? I would love to combine my two favorite beverages.

I can't comment directly on MikeRLynch's recipe above but a few years ago I did something similar.

I brewed a 12 gallon batch of a Hefe (60% wheat/32% pilsener/8% munich) and had small amount of wort left and some local clover honey lying around so decided to mix up the following.

The grain amounts below are an approximation but when I entered them into a online recipe calculator the OG came out to a 0.001 difference. So they must be close. You could easily convert this to extract.

1 gallon batch
OG 1.090
FG 1.018

.25 lb wheat
.20 lbs Pilsen
.10 Munich

Boil this 1.5 gallons of wort separately
.25 oz Tettnang hops added at 60 minutes

Cooled wort to 70 degress
2 lbs Clover honey

Lalvin K1V prepared and pitched
1 Minneola Tangelo
8 raisins

Use 1 pack of K1V wine yeast then dry hopped with 1 oz Tettnang hops.

One of the best things I've ever brewed.
