This is spot on, IMO.

I don't know the scare around decoction. It's not that hard and it really makes a huge difference. MO and caravienne come very close and make great beer, as well as other adjuncts, but seriously, nothing comes close to decoction.

I have brewed this beer a few times now and noticed a big difference when I skipped the decoction. I think it only took an extra 30-45 minutes for the brew. Not a big deal.

Can I ask why you made this a 4 gallon batch size. This will be my 1st attempt at scaling a recipe (I want to make it 6gal. 1/2 gallon waisted in brew kettle and half gallon waisted in fermenter 5gal in keg.). Wanted to make sure your ingredients were actually measured for 4 gal not 5 or 6

My brewery is designed around 4g recipes. I end up with four gallons of beer inthe fermenter. You will need to scale the recipe and adjust the efficiencies.

Thanks Boerderij, I'm really looking forward to trying this out. I totally screwed up my 1st extract wheat and now I have plenty more beers under my belt and have been doing all grain for at least 5 of those.

I can't tell you how grateful we newbs are to you recipe creators for giving us good beers to brew. Thanks!

Thanks for all the suggestions on brewing an Oberonlike beer. I am now tasting what turned out to be a great brew, although next time I will cut back on the dry hopping amounts from 1.5 oz to 1.0 oz and duration from 5 days to 3 days. I did a decoction that brought my efficiency up to 82%. The recipe I used for a 5 gal batch was:

Pony Oberony

Recipe Specifications
--------------------------
Batch Size: 5.00 gal
Boil Size: 6.90 gal
Estimated OG: 1.068 SG
Estimated Color: 4.3 SRM
Estimated IBU: 16.9 IBU
Brewhouse Efficiency: 82.00 %
Boil Time: 60 Minutes

Ingredients:
------------
Amount Item Type % or IBU
6 lbs 4 oz Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 57.01 %
4 lbs 4 oz White Wheat Malt (2.4 SRM) Grain 38.01 %
8.8 oz Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2.0 SRM) Grain 4.98 %
1.05 oz Saaz [4.00 %] (30 min) Hops 10.3 IBU
1.05 oz Saaz [4.00 %] (15 min) Hops 6.6 IBU
0.50 oz Centennial [10.00 %] (Dry Hop 5 days)
1.00 oz Cascade [5.50 %] (Dry Hop 5 days)
1 Pkgs American Wheat Ale (Wyeast Labs #1010)


Fermentation was at 67F for 3 weeks and another 5 days for the dry hopping. The American Wheat Ale yeast turned out great with a robust white head and good lacing.

I forgot to use whirlock so the brew turned out a little cloudy but I enjoy a cloudy wheat beer so all was good.

The hop aroma was very grassy and a little too pronounced. Good but a little over the top. Side by side comparisons with Oberon were a little darker, more hoppy aroma and more cloudy. I was going to harvest the Oberon yeast but ran out of time to step it up in time to brew. I enjoyed this brew better than Oberon and am going to try another batch in a month or so.

My dogs name is Capone and his nickname is Pony Rony so we named the brew Pony Oberony.

Question to those of you who use the decoction method. I just want to make sure I understand this method correctly before I try it. Do you add "x" amount of water at or around the 100F mark (protein rest); drain off and add some more water at a higher temperature, drain off and add yet more water at even a higher temp, drain off and then sparge?

I chose a double decoction mash in BeerSmith and it looks like I would end up with over 8 gal. in the BK, but I'm sure I'm missing something. Also, do you recommend the single, double or triple decoction and why? Please help.
