Tasting Notes: Slightly carbonated refreshing with a nice caramel flavor and a good balance of hops.   

I got the idea to make a beer like this after having a beer that was very similar from Germany. It was not a typical IPA as it still had the malty characteristics of a good German Weizen, however it was almost perfectly balanced out by the cascade hops, without being to much of an IPA. The best way to describe it would be walking a tightrope between the two styles.

The name of this beer translates to: Good Wheat IPA, I just liked giving it the German touch

  • 1 lbs Caramel Wheat Malt
  • 1 lbs Caramunich Malt
  • 5.5 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) Belgian

Mash:

Mash 9 Gallons @ 153 F, for 60 min
Then bring to 168 F for 10 min

Mash 6.5 Gallons @ 153 F, for 60 min
Sparge 2.5 Gallons @ 168 F, for 10 min


Boil for 90 min.

Ferment for 14 days in the primary, 14 days in the secondary, and dry hop on day 9 of the secondary.

Reason: Updated the name
