Hop character is derived from a heavy bittering addition. Perhaps the most widely brewed American style ale. It has a straw-yellow hue similar to a pilsner, but is less hoppy, a bit sweeter and uses pale malts and a small amount of wheat. Chocolate malt, roasted barley and a touch of smoked malt bring this full-bodied, malty ale to completion, Wheat malt and European hops create the recipe for. A nice, hoppy character is balanced well against this roasty, full-bodied beer. Tips are provided for several steps, suggesting that you might want to do a larger boil, make sure the grains can move around in the steeping bag, keeping the steeping temperature in range, etc. Although nearly black in color, this beer is medium-bodied and finishes dry from the roasted barley addition. I'm a big fan of the Belgian Tripel style and have yet to find a recipe that I am happy with. I assume the displacement of the wort chiller and the fact that there is an intentional space under the valve (to avoid picking up particulate matter) accounts for this. Start the boil and add the LME, DME, and sugar once at a rolling boil. (I would do these things anyway.). In the last post, I shared an overview of The Grainfather, recommended equipment to use with it, and an overview of the brewing process. Medium-bodied, malty and finished with a distinct hop flavor. Light-bodied with a smooth finish, our Weizenbier features an authentic dry wheat yeast. This beer is very drinkable and is most enjoyable fresh, just after bottle conditioning. In my case, I added an ounce of Czech Saaz hops (3% alpha acid). Nice balance of caramel malts and specialty grains. Smooth clean finish with moderate carbonation level. All things considered, I am happy with the kit. 0000010639 00000 n H�\�͊�@��y�Zv/�h�ֽ-��np1?�3���I�q��O���&�9!U~Gn���nߵ���}}��;�]3�k����vٲpM[O�O�w}��,O���/���ge��_��u��a������?�&�mwv��G�n��/���­׮���Cߪ�{u�.��=�����OiϿ��Ct����L�7�:Tu���r���+�ҵ�b���� The malt bill is based on wheat extract and flaked red wheat and will provide a light copper color and ample head retention.

That's above the kit's estimated 1.083 to 1.086. Although not mentioned in the instructions, I took out my oxygenator and gave the wort two minutes of oxygen to ensure that the yeast had plenty to work with in this high-gravity beer.

Pricing the same items out, and adjusting the price so that I'm counting only what would be used in the recipe (e.g., you have to buy an ounce of hops at $2.49 but only need a half ounce, so I counted $1.25), it worked out to a total of $45.23.
