I am planing what to put in my rum barrel with the barley wine that's in there now comes out and that thought combined with plans to brew a hefe with/for my wife. The synthesis being a wheat wine/hefeweizen partigyle brew day. something along the lines of...
12 lbs munich 10L (Great western)
20 lbs malted wheat (I would use raw but I don't want to have to cereal mash 20 lbs of wheat)
Mash this at 148 for 90 minutes
Cap the mash with 1 lb crystal malt for body and add 'sparge' water to hit 160 for 20 minutes
So my question to you all is what hops should I use for this? I imagine using something like a hallertauer for the hefe, although I would love a domestic option as, like I said, I like to keep it local as much as possible.
What for the wheat wine? What's a good domestic alternate for hallertauer?
