Commercial Beer Reviews / Schneider & Brooklyner Hopfen Weisse

Go and- no wait! Run and get yourself a bottle of this nectar. This is suddenly my favorite beer. Aggressive citrus hop character and florally perfumed.

A collaboration between Schneider and Brooklyn breweries: "...a delicious blend of Bavarian craftsmanship and American ingenuity... A pale weissbock robustly dry-hopped with the Hallertauer Saphir variety..."

I just blended about 2 ounces of Malheur 12 with a bottle of the HB. Figured it would be a pretty decent blank canvas for the Belgian beer.

The beer turned it brown- fixed that. Made it much more interesting and flavorful so I guess that takes care of the "rich" part.  ;D

Just got two bottles that I will probably try on Christmas if I can keep my hands off of them!

Don't know why they are cheaper. I found them at Whole Foods. I was curtly told "sold out" at the the other place.

I went and bought some of these wonderful beers last night.

The dunkel Ur-Weisse was significantly tarter than the helles Brau-Weisse. So maybe it is the wheat. I guess mashing higher might not result in pronounced "sweetness" but perhaps a maltier and not as dry brew.

Pull more beers off it and then see how it tastes. You might be getting some of what's settled out in the first glasses, and that can taste funky. It's better to keep them stable and cool as possible.

Had a similar problem recently.

Not finding much info on how to do a tincture.....

  On a high level, soak in vodka, strain and use the vodka which is now infused with the plant goodies.

 For example, take 5 or 6 mint leaves and crush. Cover with vodka and leave for a couple of days. The liquid is tincture of mint.

Better if the "mint" was 100% dry before soaking and ground to a fine powder. For best extraction 2 gram per 1oz of high proof alcohol such as Everclear. Strain through coffee filter.

I prefer my hefe's and wheats in the 30+ IBU range. And maybe try mashing a little higher to retain some sweetness to balance the tart along with or instead of crystal? BTW does a weizen normally call for crystal? Munich or Vienna would be my first choices.

Thanks Jay for the response.  I see what you're getting at.
I'm surprised this hasn't generated more comments yet.  I expected to get hammered.

This approach isn't new and people use these methods. No one's gonna hammer you.

Another is to take some malt grains, in proportion to their intended use and chew them. Maybe 10 gains. That gives a good indication also.

Pretty darn good idea that one. And I brew right next to mine.

No one needs to be spitting teeth. 

He didnt help anything with his filmed assault.  He should focus that energy on divorcing the woman to make sure she doesn't get any insurance money if he were to die of the cancer.  Then, sell everything she owned, take the money and just go to vegas and blow it on hookers and blow.  He coulda filmed that instead and hurt her much more.  Life is to short to be focused on people who will hurt you, especially in his case. 


And, I haven't seen the rest of the video but it doesn't look like he got the best of it anyway. Didn't look to me like he delivered much of a punch if it even landed and was almost on the ground after that. Hopefully there's no children involved. Sad. Sad. Sad. Humans suck sometimes.

Reading the youtube comments was an experience I can't take back. :P

It's sad and pathetic. I'm totally not surprised. And- she'll probably telling everyone how "it's her husband's fault she cheated".
