Hey TL...I've got an aunt and some cousins in San Angelo. I'll have to hollar at you if I ever manage to get over that way. Do you have a LHBS anywhere near you?

While wheat contributes proteins that may cause cloudyness, I think the haze most associated with wheat beers (particularly Bavarian wheat beers) is caused by low floculating yeasts. Long boils can serve to precipitate these extra proteins-- removing them from the wort.

the haze comes from the high protein content of wheat. the fact that the vast majority of wheat beers are unfiltered also contributes to cloudiness because the yeast sediment will make it cloudy. that said, there are filtered wheat beers that are crystal clear. however IMO the yeastiness in wheat beers is a desired feature of their taste, removing the yeast can be detrimental to the beers overall flavor profile.

small world. we were through there when we evacuated from Rita. it had been a couple years since i'd been. my mom's maiden name is Rees. she actually grew up in Westbrook, but all her sisters and their families still live in the area.

have you hit the Big Spring Brew Pub? i wanted to stop so bad when we went through, but didn't get the chance.
