Not sure why, but it seems like my weizen beers always turn out clear. Here are the details...
Wheat- Dingemans, 5 lb
Lager Malt-6 Row Briess, 5 lb
Saaz-Pellet, 0.25 oz, 120 min
Perle-Pellet, 0.4 oz, 30 min
Step mash, 133° for 15 min, direct heat to 148° for 20 minutes, finally direct heat up to 155° for 30 minutes. o.g. 1.048, no filtering. After ~ a month or so in the keg, I get perfectly a clear weizen pour, and not much head retention either. Serving temp is about 45°, and I hand wash my beer glasses.
I thought weizens were supposed to be a bit cloudy!!! Thoughts?
