I'm wanting to brew a REALLY big beer in celebrations of Montana's HB400 going through, raising the ABV cap to 14%. I've never done anything this big so please let me know what changes I should make, if I'm an idiot, etc. My biggest concern at this point is whether the 3068 can handle it or not. Thanks

The more I look at this, the more I wonder if it's more of a wheat wine than a Weizenbock?

I just kegged my first PM Weisenbock:

4.00lbs White Wheat
2.00lbs Cara Munich II
0.50lbs Caramel Wheat
0.50lbs Chocolate Wheat
1.00lbs Rahr 2-row
0.50lbs Flaked Wheat

2.00lbs Wheat DME
1.50lbs Dark DME
1.00lbs Corn Sugar

Double Step Mash, 150*F for 30min, 154*F for 30min
Batch sparge twice, half of the water each

0.75oz Hallertau Hersbruck 8.7% @ 60min

Safbrew WB-06, 2pkgs, rehydrated
Aerated the mash

Added DME and sugar @ knockout

SG @ sparge (mash & sparge) 1.037 @ 80*F
OG = 1.072 @ 78*F
FG = 1.012 @ 66*F
ABV = 7.86%

That is some TASTY brew! Lots of coffee and chocolate background tastes.
