I have my first self-designed brew in the fermenter - been there 7 days tonight. I picked-up a six-pack of Paulaner and Weihenstephaner Hefe's and both are great, so I knew what my first brew had to be. Here's what I used:
Batch size - 2.125 gallons
Boil size - 1 gallon water plus LME
3.3 lbs. Midwest bulk Breiss Wheat LME (65%/35%)
.25 oz. Hallertau pellet 3.8 - 1 hour
Wyeast 3068 (I used 2.1 oz. (weight))
The calculator predicts this to be:
ABV 5.2 %
Very basic, but from what I can read on the style, it's supposed to be. It has been fermenting at exactly 67.8 degrees F. I don't have a hydrometer yet, but it's still bubbling the airlock about every 10-15 seconds. I plan to carbonate to 3.5 to be safe since I am bottling it. I also have a tip on a used kegerator and hopefully in the future will be able to move to 5 gallon batches and keg it!
Comments are welcome - I'm here to learn........
