I'm trying to come up with a recipe for a Wheat IPA. I'm using some ingredients that I already have for a base Wheat beer but I want to try something different with a little hoppy character.
Here's what I'm thinking so far:
8oz Carapils [in stock]
8oz Crystal 20 [in stock]
6lbs Wheat LME [in stock]
1oz Simcoe @ 60min
1oz Tettnang @ 30min [in stock]
1oz Hersbrucker @ 5min [in stock]
1oz Cascade @ 2min
WLP300 Hefeweizen Yeast [in stock]
1oz Cascade in Secondary (Dry Hop 1-2 weeks)
I'm open to changing the addition times and even the hops. I'd like to use what I have in stock if possible. Thought the Crystal malt would add some sweetness to offset the bitterness from the hop addition, not sure if I should use all 8oz or less, or if I should use a different malt altogether. Thinking the Simcoe/Cascades could add some extra citrus notes (always good with Wheat) and raise the IBU's.
Let me know if you have any suggestions. Thanks all!
