About a month ago we thought we should re-visit wheat beer. This is something that we have visited before but not for a couple of years. Today we cut short our bottling period by a couple of day to see how it tastes.
So here is our quick look review:
We wanted a cloudy appearance and got it. The beer looked pretty much like any German Hefeweizen. Maybe slightly clearer.
This beer had was 60% wheat, which is quite high. We used a Safbrew WB-06 Yeast as it ferments well at room temperature and gives a nice fruity flavour. We add a mixture of three types of hops including Leafed Mittelfruh.
There was a lovley lemony aroma to the pint, and then that beautiful yeasty, wheaty malt flavour, and then it finished with spicy and citrussy hop . However, despite the taste being good, it was all little bit too similar to other beers in the market.
So this brew needs quite a bit of work before we can start scaling up. Back to the recipe board we go!
