Weakest fermentation I've experienced so far with US05. Hopefully it picks up soon, or I'll start thinking I did something wrong!

I brewed this using all Amarillo and it is excellent. This is only my second batch of homebrew and everyone who has tried it liked it. I will definitely make this again, thanks for the great recipe!

Probably going to brew this tonight. Never tried a wheat IPA before.

Hey CU...When you are doing this AG are you using your recipe, 60/40...5 lbs wheat, 3.5 lbs 2 row, 1 lb caravienne, or are you using what someone else on here came up with after some advice from the brewery...8lbs 2-row, 3lbs red wheat,1lb caravienne?

As you know my first PM was your recipe, and now I'm planning it for AG and was wondering which you think might get you closer to what your "inspired" clone was?[/QUOTE]

It is not Gumballhead. If you want gumballhead follow the advice of others. This is sweeter with more body and a different hop note. It was only inspired by the thought of an Amarillo hopped American Wheat Ale. With my efficiency a 12lb. grain bill would be a pretty big beer! It's your money and your brewery so make whichever recipe you want. I'm sure once the Amarillo and Simcoe hit the pot it'll all be good

It's not Gumballhead -- it's even better!

Brewed this past weekend. Fermenting now around 62-63 degrees. Using the grain bill from the first page I was a little low on my sugar extraction. I hit 1.046, which was spot on with what my brewing software said. Depending how it tastes I will add a bit more grain next time.

I just dry-hopped this carelessly wit the 2oz of Simarillo! I just dumped it into the carboy! That's how I do it!

So, how long are most of you letting it dry hop?

7-10 days worked out pretty well.
