    Hopping Hefeweizen

    Lusty, have you used this in a Hefeweizen? I have some in the freezer and I am thinking of using it in an American Wheat Ale.

    Hopping Hefeweizen

    Perhaps some noble hops late in the boil or flame out would be ok but personally I’m not a big fan of a lot of hops with a Hefeweizen yeast. If I am doing a hoppy wheat I would do a US style wheat ale or perhaps use a yeast like K-97. But some people like it and you will never know unless you try it. And welcome aboard!

    Saunders Malt Extract English Bitter

    This thread was pretty tame. This forum is usually quite civil; even Lusty is fairly polite when he disagrees with everyone. There have been some threads that have disappeared (along with some members). But given the amount of activity on here, I'm surprised (and thankful) that everyone is pretty cool.

    The Friday Night 6 Pack Session

    Rover is a good beer and a good price.

    Ingredient query

    Just to clarify, it isn’t because malted wheat doesn’t have sufficient diastatic power, it’s just wheat on its own is a soggy mess. Probably ok if using a bag and can squeeze it.

    Ingredient query

    Also wheat malt extract is usually a blend of wheat and barley; around 50/50. When mashing wheat malt it is best do mash it with a barley base malt so that should work well.

    What are you listening to right now????

    I’m listening to Triple J’s Hottest 100 of 1995. I’m stuck in the past. Also listening to a heap of Ash and the Lemonheads.

    I did partial mash brewing for about 12 months before shifting at AG. Nothing wrong with it and I made some awesome beers. I moved to AG because I had the capacity and capability and the partial mash beers were taking almost as long to make. Just make what you want and enjoy it (and move to AG ).

    King Keg S30 valves leaking🤬🤯

    Perhaps try your luck on the Jim’s Beer Kit forum as it is UK based.

    Mashes and Steeping

    No, they won't get lost in the mash with the base grains. It is easier to do it all together. I know some people steep dark grains separately but that is usually a cold steep so not to extract tannins.

    What's in your fermenter? 2019

    I am brewing an ESB next up. I need to get some more Wyeast 1469 for it.

    What's in your fermenter? 2019

    It was probably both that helped. Definitely up the Maris Otter and go with an English style yeast next time. You will be much closer.

    Coopers Commercial Yeast

    I read that in a pirate voice. I hope that is what you were aiming for.

    I love Azacca. Use it late, flame out and dry hop.

    Old Milwaukee - yes or no?

    They make some great beers but unfortunately the Lager is the only one we get here. When I was at a Celtics game in Boston last year I had a Sam Adams NEIPA and it was the best NEIPA I have tried. They have much better beer at sporting events over there.
