I'd like to try it, but can't source the caravienne locally. Any suggestions for a substitute? Crystal 15?

I'm not far enough along in my brewing career to start suggesting subs. for belgian crystal grains. Yer' in freaking Denver man! Colorado is the american homebrewing capital!

Sorry. Vienna is a lighly kilned munich malt, so .75 lbs. of caramunich would maybe be a good sub. Maybe .5 lbs. vienna and .5 lbs. belgian crystal 20.

I've been fortunate enough to always have the caravienne at the LHBS when I'm there. Today they were out of white wheat AND 2-row(1 lb'ers)! I used regular malted wheat and 6-row. First time deviating from recipe on the fourth batch I've made of this. I still think that the combo. of the hops and the caravienne give the "candied citrus" hop profile that makes this so delicious, but I haven't messed with it yet to find out different. Let me know how it comes out!

I'm about half-way through the mini-mash now

I ended up doing a more american-style, citrus wheat beer instead. might come back to it though.

What would you say is the difference between the amarillo/simcoe combination, and just amarillo?

Never made it with all amarillo. If I ever get to brew enough to build some stock up I'm going to try it that way since that is what the original GBH uses.

This one always seems to be a crowd favorite around here too. Glad you like it dwf.

Did gravity numbers and tasting fall in-line with my descriptions?

We're finally travelling to Three Floyd's tomorrow so I should get to try the real thing. Should be interesting to see how it compares.
