Weizen/Weissbier With Thick Floating Krausen
I poured a sample into a small glass for tasting and the beer came out free of trub or krausen with a light amber color that was cloudy, as expected for a German wheat beer. There was already a very slight hint of what I could best describe as lemon present in the samples I tasted. I imagined myself pouring this beer into a tall glass and adding a slice of lemon before drinking it.
Weizen/Weissbier Sample With Residual Co2
I used my Bottle Priming Calculator to help figure out how much priming sugar would be needed to hit the correct Co2 volumes for an Weizen/Weissbier beer style. The bottle priming calculator takes into account the temperature of the beer at bottling, the type of priming sugar used and the small amount of Co2 that is already in your fermented beer. You look up the level of carbonation for your style of beer according to BJCP Style Guidelines.
Weizen/Weissbier Calls For 3.6 to 4.48 Co2 Volumes Of Carbonation
This bottling day turned out to be a good day, I bottled up my wheat beer without incident and I now have eight more 1 litre bottles carbonating down in the basement where its nice and cool. Right out of the fermenter the beer went into the bottles with no need to rack to a secondary, cold crash or mix any gelatin or use any other methods to clarify my beer, so again I'm really happy about that.
