I took the g/f to a brewery/restaurant today for some food and brew sampling. I found out that her favorite beer is an unfiltered wheat ale, which we both love.

Which leads to my next question. Can someone give me a link to brew an unfiltered beer? Also, can you brew an unfiltered beer using extract/with specialty grain?

She was never really was a beer person until I opened the doors past swill. lol. Now I want to brew something that she will enjoy. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Very few people in this forum filter their beer. The equipment is fairly expensive. And yes you can brew these types of beers with extracts. One of the major reasons for filtering is to remove yeast, and with wheat beers the yeast is a big part of the overall character of the beer. Do you know what type of beer it was?


I have posted a link to the wheat section of the recipe section of this forum. I can't comment on a specific brew, because I haven't brewed any. But I would highly recommend you look at any recipes from Edwort, Biermuncher, Yuri, or Homebrewer_99 just to name a few. These guys all brew beers that have received postive reviews on this forum.

We went to two rows. Here is their link. http://www.tworows.com/brewery/index.php

The description of the brew was:

Old Town Hefe Weizen (wheat ale)
A bavarian yeast is used. This brew gives a spicy taste with a hint of clove, vanilla, and banana.

I was thinking it was different b/c of the cloudiness.

Again HB_99 is faster than me. I was actually going to recommend your Paulaner recipe and a couple hefe yeasts.
