Title: Alcatraz wheat beer
Yield: 1 Servings
3 lb Dried wheat extract
2 lb Wheat malt
1 lb Barley malt
1 lb Dried malt extract
2 1/2 oz Mt. Hood hops
Wyeast Wheat beer yeast
Make a yeast starter two days beforehand. Mash the three pounds of
malt a la Miller. Boil for one hour, adding 1-1/2 ounces hops at the
start, 1/2 ounce at 30 minutes, and 1/2 ounce at 5 minutes. Cool
and pitch yeast. Ferment. Bottle. I primed half the batch (5 gal)
with 1/3 cup corn sugar and the other half with 1/2 cup clover
honey. After two weeks, the beer was great. The beer primed with
honey, however, was way too carbonated. All you can taste is bubbles.
In direct taste tests, this beer has more body than WheatHook, and
is slightly sweeter. Compared to EKU, the beer is similar, but EKU
Wiezen is slightly sweeter. Original Gravity: 1.057 Final Gravity:
