Cool, thanks. I think I'll try the red wheat as well.

Hey All,

I am dying to brew a real german hefeweizen! This is making me excited. EdWort this recipe sounds great, but I am an extract brewer... I have been playing around with my recipe calculator and came up with this:

I am calling it "Wolkigsud Hefeweißbier"

German CaraMunich I 0.50 lb (7.7 %) In Mash/Steeped
Extract - Pilsen Light Liquid Extract 2.00 lb (30.8 %)
Extract - Bavarian Wheat Dried Extract 4.00 lb (61.5 %)

German Hallertauer Hersbrucker (3.5%aa) 0.8 oz Loose Whole Hops 45 Min
German Hallertauer Hersbrucker (3.5%aa) 0.2 oz Loose Whole Hops 15 Min

Expected OG: 1.051 SG
Expected FG: 1.012 SG
Expected ABV: 5.1 %
Expected IBU (using Rager): 11.7 IBU
Expected Color: 7.4 SRM

I added a bit of caramunich to make it interesting, don't know how this might affect it. My main question is; what is the proper ratio of wheat malt to regular malt extract?

What do you guys think?

Also instead of caramunich I was thinking maybe carared, but I don't really know the difference between the two haha

You can brew it with 100% wheat malt extract since it is not all wheat to begin with. Works fine according to some extract brewer friends of mine.

Hey Ed how has your versions with red wheat compared to german wheat other than color? Im making this with red wheat today. I upped the red wheat and pilsner by a bit..Im still trying to home in on my effeciency. I would rather be on the high side than low side. We shall see.

No comparison IMHO. I'm about to cut back on my grain, as my efficiency has pushed the beer to 6%+ which is out of style. It hammers quickly when you hit the 80s in efficiency.

How does this look for a double batch? I want to use Pale instead of Pils malt, but I'm not sure about the ratio. I assume it'll work...

1.00 lb Rice Hulls (0.0 SRM) Adjunct 5.00 %
14.00 lb Wheat Malt, Ger (2.0 SRM) Grain 70.00 %
5.00 lb Pale Ale (Crisp) (4.0 SRM) Grain 25.00 %
0.45 oz Magnum [12.75 %] (60 min) Hops 9.9 IBU
0.25 oz Magnum [12.80 %] (10 min) Hops 2.0 IBU
2 Pkgs Hefeweizen Ale (White Labs #WLP300)

I would not count the rice in my ratio. I would also make it more like a 60/40 ratio of Wheat to 2 row. Pils is required for German authenticity though. Any reason why other than that's what you have?
