Tasting Notes
Crisp, refreshing, light-bodied wheat ale with nice smokiness.
I brewed this as a summer lawnmower beer. Simple and easy to brew. Oak smoked wheat and a bit of acid malt for pH adjustment. The traditional recipe calls for Polish Lublin hops, but they can be hard to find, so I used Perle, which I had on hand. Shoot for around 30 IBU. Any clean-fermenting ale yeast is fine, I used US-05.

5.5 gallon batch

Ingredients:

6 lbs. Weyermann oak smoked wheat malt
0.25 lbs acid malt

Water: Balanced Yellow, in Bru 'N Water

1 oz. Perle @ 60
0.5 oz. Perle @ 15

Mash at 150F BIAB, no sparge
60 minute boil

Chill to 64, pitch US-05 (or other clean ale yeast), aerate.
Ferment at 64 for about 14 days. Cold-crash and package.
I bottled, priming to 3.0 volumes.

Beer was about 3.5% ABV. Smoky but not overpowering, and enough hop bitterness to compliment that smoke. Finishes clean. Very sessionable and a great warm weather refresher!

Enjoy!
