Recipe of the
Wonderful Wheat Ale
- 6.6 lb. Briess Wheat Extract
- 2 lb. clover honey
- 1 lb Briess Victory malt
- 1 lb Briess Wheat malt
- 1 oz Mt. Hood hops
- 1/2 oz Willamette hops
- White Labs Hefe-Wiezen liquid yeast
- 6 oz. corn sugar (priming)
Place cracked grains in bag and steep in 2 gallons cold water at 150-170 degrees F.
for 20 min., then bring to boil and stir in malt extract. When boiling begins, add
1/2oz of both the Mt. Hood and Willamette hops. Boil for 30 minutes (rolling boil), then add the
honey and the last 1/2 ounce of Mt. Hood. Boil an additional 10 minutes.
Remove heat, cool wort and strain into primary fermenter. Top off fermenter
to 5 gal. level. Stir wort to add oxygen, then pitch yeast.
When visible signs of fermentation have ended, siphon beer into
secondary fermenter and allow to sit an additional 7 days.
Bottle beer and let sit for 2 weeks. Chill and Enjoy!
