Yeah it looks good Chad, the roasted barley would add something I think. Although do you need more than 200g of wheat malt to be a wheat ale?


Is this the beer you posted before and the discussion led to steeping vs mashing wheat malt? (sorry, too lazy to do a search). If so, I guess there were no ill effects. Could you taste the wheat malt?


I will Waitabit for your response.

Hi Hairy,


You might be right about needing more wheat to call it a "wheat", but I just thought the name rang so well that I had to go with it.[innocent]


This is not the brew I posted about earlier. That one is my Willamette Wheat Ale with 500g of wheat malt. I have yet to bottle that one but it is showing promise. I racked it over to a glass carboy the other day. It is cloudy but like Paul said "who cares?"[cool]
