I am using the 2 row because I am trying to use it up and I already have the Wheat on hand. Does this look better?

That looks better. Be sure to soak and rinse your rice hulls before you add them, that way you won't waste any of that precious wort.

Ok good. I never thought of pre-soaking them. Great tip!

Ed,

Would I be able to use White Labs WLP300 in place of the Wyeast. It is just easier for me to obtain that yeast. It seems to be along the same Lines. Thanks.

Should be OK. I heard it was the same Weihenstephan strain.

According to http://www.mrmalty.com/yeast.htm WLP 300 and Wyeast 3068 are the same yeast.

Would it be wrong to substitute sterling leaf hops for the hallertauer hops? The LHBS is out of the hallertauer. I didn't know if this would totally change the recipe. Thanks

Should be OK, but watch your IBUs, Sterling is about twice as strong as Hallertau. Depending on the Alfa % you will want to scale back to about 1/2 for each addition.

I used 1/2 cup of Wheat DME and 16 oz. of water to make the starter wort. It will work fine for 5 gallons. Step it up to a quart if you are going to split it between two 5 gallon fermenters for a 10 gallon batch like I do.
