Greetings!

I had a thought last night for a New Zealand style wheat ale. Let me know what ya'll think.

OG: 1.055
FG: 1.015
ABV: 5.24
IBU: 38
SRM: 7.0
Style: 6D American Wheat Or Rye Beer

Malts:
6lbs UK 2-row Pilsner
5lbs Rahr White Wheat
1lbs Weyermann Caramunich 1

Hops:
1oz Moeteka 7% 60min
1oz Nelson Sauvin 10min

Yeast:
WLP320 American Wheat Ale

Should be a somewhat hoppy, crisp, and fruity wheat for summer!

Cheers,
Jason

I just brewed an American wheat that has a similar grain bill. Bittered with Nobel hops and finished with Nelson and amarillo. Two oz over the last 7 minutes. 12 gallon batch. Should be tasty.

Mmmmm, that sounds delicious.

Maybe I should do a hop stand with another ounce of Nelson (and maybe some more of the Moeteka) to get that killer hop flavor/aroma?

Lighthouse Brewing here in Victoria, BC has a Wheat IPA that uses Riwaka and Rakau hops and it's damn tasty.

Kinda sorta. I do a backwards BIAB where I start adding grain at 120 then heat slowly to the mid 150's. I've found it easier to hit my targets that way.

I used a single infusion with rice hulls. Also used a portion of Vienna as the base malt. Only 18 ibus here. This one is for a party.

I've noticed in low doses the New Zealand hops impart a earthy flavor.

Really?? being from there and living there, i kinda get a fruit sald style brew, the motueka maybe give a small spiciness, as its a saaz variety, along with riwaka.

sauvin i find gives a white grape, sauvignon blanc unique flavour.
then hteres lots of different varieties from there, ie. pacific which is a hallertau variety, and give an orange marmalade flavour

It's not a bad flavor just something I've never tasted. Maybe it's that. I smoke so I can't say I taste that well.
