Fermented low at 64-66 in the corner of the basement for 14 days.

I have to say that this beer is great. Just carbed it up yesterday with 24 psi for 36 hours.

Cloudy, but it's a wheat. The sweetness from the Honey Malt and the Amarillo and Centennial hops give an nice and interesting interaction.

Fermenting the US-05 Yeast at 65 really made a light difference.

When I tasted the FG sample, I didn't think that I would like it, but I do.

I just bottled some of this in late April. I used Kent, Williamette and Hallertau hops instead because it's what I had on hand.

It came out really good. I was looking for a nice summer afternoon beer and this is really doing the job.

Thanks!

The Amarillo and the Centennial give a nice citrus undertone for summer as well.

The Willamette would probably be nice too.

How much honey flavor do you get? Is it pretty subtle?

The sweetness from the Honey Malt counteracts (and balances) the bitterness from the hops. I wouldn't say it's sweet, it's tasty.

When you read times like this:

Double Infusion, Medium Body Step Time Name Description Step Temp
20 min Protein Rest Add 7.50 qt of water at 144.5 F 122.0 F
60 min Saccrification Add 6.00 qt of water at 206.3 F 154.0 F
10 min Mash Out Add 7.50 qt of water at 198.1 F 168.0 F

does 60 minutes mean 60 minutes from time 0 or an additional 60 minutes after the initial 20?
