    Aspects of Brewing a Wheat Beer

    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...

    Very fast fermentation of (almost) all wheat beer with yeast starter of Safale WB-06

    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...

    Can you get ferulic acid from Weetbix?

    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...

    Flaked Wheat

    Hi All, 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...

    Trouble with honey

    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...
