Subscribed!! Is that the holiday beer with peach/peach flavor. If I remember it was a pretty good beer. Can't help you though. Sorry.

It is a dunkelweizen -- I think it's fermented with an American wheat strain rather than a weizen strain -- with peaches and roasted pecans added in secondary.

Yes that is the one! My wife isn't much of a beer fan but she loves it so I want to make it for her.

*Shiner Cheer or as I'm going to call it "Joy"*

-Basic Dunkelweizen + Joy - 5 gallons/Mini Mash/60 min boil

1 oz Brewers Gold Hops (1/2 @ 60, 1/2 @ last 15mins)
4 oz Honey Malt
4 oz Cara Wheat
4 oz Red Wheat
4 oz Chocolate Wheat
1 3/4lb 2-Row
4lbs Wheat Malt Extract

(+)11.5g Safale S-04 yeast -make starter: added to PEACH juice (8 oz), heated for 45mins @155 degrees

(+) 8 oz Pecans --start with halves soaked overnight in salt water(to promote enzymes that improve flavor), slow roasted till dry, soaked overnight in vodka(to remove oils), slow roasted till dry, break up into quarters, leave over night, slow roast until barely starting to smoke, and then remove from oven, then add to grain bag and start wort. 45 min mashing.

Brew as normal.

At bottling Add 1 oz Pecan liquid beer flavoring, and 1 oz Peach to priming sugar(4.5 oz corn sugar)
*This is amusing the taste/flavor ratio is 2:1 - Pecans:Peaches (Pecan extract is 2x stronger than Peach)

I formulated this recipe and am going to boil on Saturday!!!
I will report back with gravity, and final product in 6 weeks or so...

Would anyone disagree that the taste/ flavor ratio in Cheer is 2:1-Pecan:Peach ??????

I say run with it and see what happens! I've not had the stuff in years but it ressurected in my thoughts when a friend talked about it. She's big on the cheer and I've got in the bottle now 9 or 10 beers so it's time to brew one for someone else.

Do you have any updates on the concept of this?

Or hell if you haven't brewed it, I'm right down the road from you if you want to try an all grain batch. I'm off the 35 and Walzem area in San Antonio. Should just be a simple conversion since you did mini replace the 4# LME with 6# of base grains.

That seems like a lot in the peach and pecan departments but let us know how it turns out. I've never had good experience with using peaches -- tends to produce a sort of muddled flavor -- but you may have better luck.

Change: I added the roasted pecans (80 grams) to the secondary- idk what I was thinking adding to the mash..

bottled on the 13th, everything seemed ok, nice aromas
OG 1.047 FG 1.012 ~4% abv

lets see how this turns out and go from there

yeah, i only used half of "recommended" on the extracts, i dont want a "flavored beer" just notes of flavors, but at bottling, i would say its prob still too much peach... we'll see.. im going to give it 3 weeks and then another in the fridge...

Awesome awesome! I picked up the supplies to do an all grain version from the LHBS I'll wait for your flavor notes perhaps if I can keep the person that wants it off me long enough to do so and then give it a whirl. If you determine anything in the interim, please let me know. I suppose you can take it slow and add some peach or pecan to the secondary as you go and see how it smells and tastes throughout uncarbed. However you're running the infection risk playing that game.
