Recipe #32 - Bavarian Hefeweizen With Steeped Grains

 This past year I've brewed seven wheat beers using Mr. Beer extracts and assorted types of yeasts. Some recipes have included a lot of adjuncts as well, like orange, grains of paradise, clove and coriander. In this next batch of wheat beer that's being planned now I want to include steeping wheat malt into the recipe. The purpose of adding steeping grains to my recipes is to add more complexity to the finished beer while I learn the basic concepts of brewing great tasting beer with grains.

I used qBrew's default 'Witbier' style guidelines to crunch the recipe's numbers.

Recipe Size 2.13 gallons: Estimated  IBU=21, SRU=5, OG=1.045
1/2 pound Wheat Malt steeped at 153F for 30 minutes

1 Can Whispering Wheat Weizenbier (HME)
1 Can Golden Wheat (UME)

1/2 ounce Hallerteur pellet hops boiled for 10 minutes
1/2 ounce Hallerteur pellet hops finishing

11.5 grams Fermentis Safbrew WB-06 dry yeast
Pitched at 70F and fermented at 68F
