Save your specialty yeast and make it a plain old vanilla American Wheat beer first then flavor it...cubbies said:Sort of tough to make a weisse unique because if you go too far out of style, you are no longer making a weisse.
However, you have options. You could add fruit to the secondary. You could add a substantial flavor hop addition; maybe a Cascade addition at 20 minutes. You could add a number of spices including coriander and grains of paradise. Or you could add some dark crystal malt and give it a malty character and darken the color.
The possibilities are really endless, but like I said, you would not really be making a weisse anymore.
I agree. If you are looking at add ins, a generic american wheat would be a better base.homebrewer_99 said:Save your specialty yeast and make it a plain old vanilla American Wheat beer first then flavor it...
