I just brewed my first Berliner Weisse on Saturday. I am following the method used by Morkin for Alferman Imperial Berliner Weisse except that I am extract. I am at the same OG (1054).
Mainly I am hoping people can look at my pictures and say "yea that looks normal" or "that looks horribly wrong, dump it before it grows legs".
My starter was 1/2c crush grain and 2c of ~120 F water. I let it sit covered with foil for about three days. I have a picture of the starter.
I "mash hopped" with my steeping grains. Added extract and raised temp just to a boil before cooling. I added the starter at a temp of ~120 F.
Everything then went into a heated water bath and has been at 85 F since.
I will taste it tonight to see if it is sour. If so then I'm planning to cool to ~75 F and add rehydrated T-58.
Here is a link to the pictures.
I indicated elapsed time in the title of each picture. At 33 hours this morning things actually looked more like krausen to me. Its a little hard to tell with the condensation.
Thanks in advance for the help.
