1lb. Pilsen Malt
8oz. flaked wheat
8oz. flaked oats
Combined then separated in two grain bags.
Steeped for :45 minutes at 155* - 160*. Lightly lifting occassionally throughout steep.
(Boiled 2 cups water and cooled, covered down to 70*, then rehydrated Safbrew T-58 yeast.)
Removed grains and brought to a boil. Removed from heat.
Added 1lb CBW Bavarian Wheat DME and 1oz. Styrian Golding pellet hops.
Returned to boil for :40 minutes.
Removed from heat and added 5 additional pounds of CBW Bavarian Wheat DME + 1 oz. Coriander, .5 oz Bitter Orange peel and .75 oz. Tangerine peel.
Returned to boil for additional :10 minutes.
Cooled to 65* with IC.
Strained wort into bucket and then poured between bucket and kettle several times to add addtional air.
Poured into 6.5 gallon carboy. Topped up to 5 gallons with fresh water. Plugged carboy and shook vigorously for several minues.
Took a wort sample for OG and added yeast. Added airlock and covered carboy with towel.
OG was 1.110. Is this even possible? I plugged this recipe into an online program and it should have had an OG of 1.050 max. With this measured OG I would have had a 200% efficiency with the steeping grains.
What say ye?
Sorry for the long post.
