well brewed my first wheat beer today.. i plan on adding raspberry in the second fermentor.. (btw.. im still trying to figure out how much to put in.. suggestions welcome!)
3.3 lbs light malt extract
4.95 lbs wheat malt extract
1 oz tettnanger hops (3.7% AA) (15 into the boil)
pitched Wyeast #3056 Bavarian Wheat
2.5 - 3 gallon boil...boiled total 60 mins.
racking into a 6.6 carboy.. can i just say..dang that stuff had some head on it.. ill be watching it very closely!
not real happy with my OG it was only 1.03 needless to say the recipe stated 1.052 .. looks like ill have a weak beer but im hoping the fruit will ferment some and help the alcohol levels out some..
also..is it really common for wheat beer to appear to have SOO much stuff in it? ill post a pic so you can see.. im excited and looking forward to it.. needless to say.. one more girly beer for the Sailman to have to put up with! oh well the lagernot turned out awesome.. hopefully this will be drinkable!
the wheat is on the left; the sweet mead that is fermenting is on the right (been bubbling now about a week!)
