Every once in awhile I get an itch to try something crazy so I think my next experiment will be a 100% wheat beer. I've only done some light searching at this point but there's not a lot of information out there from guys who have done this. There's this HBT post
which also has a link to a good Basic Brewing video.
Most of the posts have focused on BIAB. I definitely see the merit in doing it this way, but I kinda want to try it with my existing setup (keggle w/ false bottom, fly sparging).
My typical mash in procedure is to continuously recirculate as I slowly pour the grain in. I like doing this because it catches every little grain particle that falls through the false bottom. I never have stuck mashes, and that's including a 50% oat beer I did without any rice hulls.
But I think for this 100% wheat I will use rice hulls. Before I begin adding grain, I'll get the pump recirculating, and dump a couple big handfuls of rice hulls in so I can get a good filter right on top of the false bottom. I'll also mix in some hulls with the grist before mashing in.
I'm also planning on doughing in at 1.25qts at 125* for a protein rest. I'll probably rest here for 20min or so, after which I'll add an infusion of boiling water to get to about 155*. After 45min of saccharification I'll pull a medium-thickness decoction with the intention of getting to mash-out. Cross my fingers, and then start sparging and running off!
I'm going to aim for a 1.060 beer but plan for like 60% efficiency so if it's higher or lower I won't be beating myself. Probably make it in the vein of an APA and pitch with 1968 (the house yeast).
Brew day is scheduled for Mar 2nd or 3rd so look for updates then! Feedback welcome.
