I am looking for some ideas/feedback for an American wheat. My previous attempts have been great but very clean, crisp, with not a lot of wheat character. Those attempts were 50% belgian pilsner, 40% white wheat, 10% flaked wheat. I want to beef up the wheat/malt character but keep it very simple this go around.
60% wheat (Rahr or Weyermann Spelt?)
40% two row? pale ale malt? something English?
Hop 1 20 min - noble or noble-like
Hop 2 5 min - citrusy American - Cascade, Amarillo, etc...
*Malt - Any recommendations on a good American 2 row or possibly a different base malt? I have been using primarily continental malts for the last year...
*Hops - I am considering something noble or noblish (sterling, crystal) at 20 min and something American at 5 min. Any thoughts?
*Yeast - I have 05 in there kind of by default. I will likely use something dry that I have on hand (05, 04, K97) but am open to recommendations
*Water - normally I would probably shoot for a mash pH around 5.35 and a 'yellow balanced' profile. Should I bump up the pH a bit and give 'yellow malty' a shot?
So basically I don't have a recipe....
. If anyone just wants to share some tried and true recipes that would be great too.
