I'm not familiar with the beer, but I'm guessing it's not a wheat beer. Probably ~1/4-1/2lb of the wheat malt primarily for head retention.

Even when I brew a "lighter" beer I will add up to 1 lb of wheat malt for body and head retention.

The Pilsner malt is malt, not malt extract. And of that 8lbs of extract 4lbs are LME. But I'm still not sure what that adds up to...

Yeah, ProMash is giving somewhere between 1.084 and 1.091 at 70% efficiency for 5 gallons (depending on if the second 4 lbs is LME or DME)...

1.045 is what I get if it is all DME and 10 gallons...

How much are ya making???


mikey

Oh, and that don't count the wheat
