Thought I'd chime in and say that I have tried 100% wheat, and its one of my best drinkers. I used 100% red wheat, and Kellerweiss that I cultured from the bottle. I do BIAB so I didn't need the rice hulls. The taste is a little different than with a portion of barley (at least in mine) in the sense that the beer is much richer. I'm not sure why, but process wise I seem to get slightly less (from normal 75% down to 70%) efficiency with this brew. But, I don't know if that is common with large wheat bills or just my own quirk. I really love the rich taste of the beer though. Definitely try it if you like.I thought there was not enough enzymes in wheat to get conversion. which is why you add some barley, a handful of 6-row even, not so much for flavor but for diastatic power. did it attenuate well? What was your OG-FG/ABV?
I cover decoctions on pp. 37-43, including several popular mash schedules on pp. 41-42. I normally do a hochkurz decoction for my pilsners.What book is he referring to?
Charlie P's Delerium Oat Rosemary IPA. Zymurgy Jan/Feb 2012. I was walking around our herb garden with a homebrew last month and pinched off some rosemary and waved it around while tasting my pale ale. Seemed interesting, then i found this recipe and decided to give it a try. I'll let you know haw it turns out.Well after dry hopping for about a week (after fermentation) I kegged. It is wonderful! The oatmeal gave it plenty of body and maltiness, while the hops seem to dominate. the Rosemary is there in the aroma and lingers through the finish but isnt all in your face. I cant wait to taste this after I carb. I bet this beer will pair well with grilled chicken Yum!
I am planning on Brewing every other Saturday while my girlfriend is at work... I was also wondering if anyone else does something similar?Wish i could get my (wife) to work Saturdays.
My understanding is that MrMalty is very reliable. IMO it is better to overpitch a little than underpitch, particularly in a lager type beer.+1
