    Did you post that recipe Kelsey or have I not been paying attention - quite possible with everything that's been going on...

    RDWHAHB - WHAT ARE YOU DRINKING IN 2019?

    just having a crack at the earlier Hefeweizen - more like 5.5% ABV and I think that my latter one may be overdone - it is so Bock-isch... maybe a bit too much malt and high ABV.. around 7.7% but pretty heavy!

    Too true Kelsey - it's clear when it's raining here... hefeweizen but in the fridge 24 hours and thought it would be nice to see how it tastes ohne yeast ; )

    Mead...

    Benny Brewing Legend - did you use any u-beaut yeast for your magic drop or just throw in a few sultanas and a bit of bread yeast? Seems like there are all sorts of flash yeasts available - and SC suggest a cider yeast too - what yeast did you use Master Brewer?

    Thanks v much Lusty - very good inf. Was thinking if I added the Oats - for the starch - it might improve my head retention - which is v poor on a pure Dry Malt Extract Brew it seems... I tried a brew with v little Liq Malt -- all malt -- but most input via DME -- and the head retention was pretty poor... was thinking of rolling some oats and stewing up a la porridge - for a better head retention... but maybe not such a good idea... guess I could try and report back If that starch we are discussing does not help head retention then certainly would be waste of effort. Yeah that last WB sucker in the picture is pretty winter-hefty ish. Was thinking of doing a Stout with the added oats... was thinking oatmeal stout maybe aids in the creamy mouthfeel and head retention with a porridge frame of reference in my mind - but maybe that is just wishful thinking?

    I reckon it looks Festive RowBrew mate - and if it tastes good WGAF! Am looking at going into the Malt Cracking All Grain Legends Gang - still dribbling out the concentrate brews for the time being but keen to pick up on the tips... Did you use all that fancy stuff the guns use - like Whirfloc and Isinglass and Brewbrite Polyclar... I could send you some proprietary polycationic coagulant from the Plant if you like ; ) Reckon it would knock your particulates out easy... clarify yer beer but best not to drink it then - just take a photo and pour down the loo and clean out the S-Bend ?!

    Hairy can you store kegs for long periods of time in cold room/fridge as long as they are just well gassed up? [am only a basic Bottler at this stage in my brewing development]

    RDWHAHB - WHAT ARE YOU DRINKING IN 2019?

    Greeny - using stored yeasts from previous brews - do you just add a certain amount directly to the ready Wort or do you fire them up beforehand with a bit of dex or malt or other? I have a nice bottle of WB06 in the fridge for the future and am wondering how I would pitch in best way possible - and could I use WB06 in a Barley Malt based brew?

    Good luck with your Weissbier! What Yeast did you end up going with? My Hefeweizen turned into Weizenbock with a few extra kilos of LDME... is recent in the bottle but tasting good. But is only an extract brew... not AG excellence like yours ; ) Good mouthfeel and great head retention... used liquid malts... seems dry malts don't generate such good mouthfeel and head retention...

    thomas coopers wheat can yeast ?????

    And thanks Lusty also for your help... as you will see in the thread... seems to have gone ok with WB06

    Hey there Greeny, The latest iteration of Hefeweizen is more of a bock bier - is pretty big - so the use of the SAF ALE WB06 is not strictly the only difference... but it is a good drop... I used dex drops for convenience in the bottles... otherwise full malt... is a pretty good strong brew... And I think the higher temps have given some cloves... good stuff. Might be good next time to try some Mandarina hops. Cheers and thanks for all the good advice along the way!
