With half of my family originating from Bavaria, I’ve been exposed to wheat beers from a young age, and would often proudly pour them for members of my family. I remember the unusual glasses, the lively bubbles, and the golden color of the cloudy liquid underneath a thick creamy head. It was a...
Last weekend I attempted to brew an (almost) all wheat beer utilizing some leftover grains/extract to clear up some space in the pantry. Long story short, I did not have enough ice to throw in wort to cool it down rapidly to 70 F. So I left it at room temperature overnight (~18 hours) to cool...
here's the deal. I am planning on brewing a honey wheat ale this next week and I am trying to figure out how to incorporate some un-malted Hard winter white wheat. Why you ask?? Well it comes from my in-law's farm and I'm trying to get some 'local ingredients' incorporated into this...
I am going to brew a witbier this weekend, but I am struggling to find flaked wheat here.
The recipe is 50% Pale Malt 2-raw // 40% flaked wheat // 10% flaked oats
Anyone has already successfully substituted flaked wheat for a witbier in the past?
I have seen somewhere else on the...
I've brewed a Weizen from extract before and it wasn't bad, but the liquid wheat malt extract I have yields a clear, light bodied beer that is low on the typical Weizen flavors. This is not surprising, since the LME lacks a lot of things you get from a proper mash containing significant amounts...
Hello all. I am in the fermentation stage with this beer, despite not having a ton of info on Voss Kveik and the flavors it imparts in wheat beers. I also have not brewed with Raspberries in the past, and would like some advice.
Just a bit about brew day-
We hit our OG right on the button at...
My wheat beers lose the banana flavour after a few months, can anyone suggest any measures to preserve it for longer? I'm going to try storing colder but would be interested in any preservatives I could add or any other tips or tricks. I do bottle condition so nothing that will kill...
Made a wheat beer the other day...

So preparing for my third brew (first hefeweizen) and was looking over the ingredients I was given by the local home brew store. I saw I have a bag of flaked wheat, is this something that should be included with the mash in the initial wort boil?
Or something added right at the end...
I've been having some trouble when brewing Weissbier. Been cooking up 20 L batches of weissbier with a pH after boiling of around 5.2.
Pitching one 11.5 g pack of Fermentis WB-06 at 16°C, oxygenating for 2 minutes at 4L/min and fermenting at 20°C.
Unfortunately, I end up with a pH...

I recently gave a friend a really simple extract recipe for a honey wheat beer that I had a lot of success with. The recipe calls for a pound (16 oz) of honey in the last 5 min. of boil. My friend made it and told me his original gravity was 1.063, but it should have been around 1.036. We...
