Need Help Building a Grodziskie/Grätzer Recipe
« on: May 25, 2012, 10:48:23 AM »
Hi All,

I was thinking of brewing a Grodziskie/Grätzer up this weekend, and was wondering what percentage of Oak-Smoked Wheat Malt others have used for this. My grist is just going to be 100% of it, but Weyermann's site says to use it up to 80%. The only description I have read of the beer also says it should be fairly hoppy. So, should I cut the smoked malt down to 80%, and does the hopping look right?

This is a 3-Gallon Recipe

Ingredients
Amt Name Type # %/IBU
4 lbs Oak-Smoked Wheat Malt, Ger (3.0 SRM) Grain 1 100.0 %
0.25 oz Perle [8.60 %] - Boil 60.0 min Hop 2 11.9 IBUs
0.75 oz Celeia [4.50 %] - Boil 15.0 min Hop 3 9.3 IBUs
0.50 oz Saaz [4.00 %] - Boil 15.0 min Hop 4 5.5 IBUs
1.00 oz Celeia [4.50 %] - Boil 5.0 min Hop 5 5.0 IBUs
0.75 oz Saaz [4.00 %] - Boil 5.0 min Hop 6 3.3 IBUs

WLP001

Beer Profile
Est Original Gravity: 1.037 SG Measured Original Gravity: 1.037 SG
Est Final Gravity: 1.007 SG Measured Final Gravity: 1.010 SG
Estimated Alcohol by Vol: 3.9 % Actual Alcohol by Vol: 3.5 %

Thanks a lot,
Kyle

Just saw this post. I smoked wheat malt over oak and used 100% smoked wheat malt. I bittered to 44 IBU's using Saaz all the way. The recipe was from Radical Brewing by Mosher, the beer turned out great.

Thansk a lot!

Yeah, Mosher's recipe is what I was basing mine off of, which is why I was curious about Weyermann's usage rate.

Sounds like I am good to go for this weekend then.
