Title: Wheat stout, because...why not?
Post by: kraftwerk on June 18, 2012, 11:33:52 PM
Hey all, this is a recipe of a wheat beer that started as a Dunkel and ended up somewhere between an porter and a stout. The short explanation is that I screwed up my grain bill badly, and through much advice and guidance by the AHA community, I was able to pull off a pretty tasty beer. More details in this post: http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php?topic=12021.msg158227#msg158227 (http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php?topic=12021.msg158227#msg158227)

Anyway, here's the recipe:

5.5 lb Pale malt
5.0 lb German wheat malt
1.25 lb Munich I
14 oz Blackprinz

1.0 oz Mt. Hood
1.0 oz Citra

Wyeast 3068 Weihenstephan
Whirlfloc & Yeast nutrient

Protein rest @ 122 for 30 min
Sacc rest @152 for 30 min
Mash out @168 for 10 min

fly sparge and 60 min boil

Mt. Hood @ 0:00 and Citra @ 45:00

The next time I try this, I'll use Safale US-04 English ale yeast and probably English or German hops. Turned out pretty decent. I keg conditioned with 3/4 cup priming sugar and an extra shot of CO2 after crashing. I hope you enjoy and please post if you try this or something similar!

Looks more like a Dunkelweizen with citra hops....

you had me all the way ... until the citra hops.  ;)

Also, no reason to bother with whirlflock on a wheat beer IMO.

Haha, yeah it's just what I had on hand at the time. It's barely detectable, anyway.
