Recipe Name: Alcatraz Wheat Beer Submitted by: Administrator
Source: Source Description:
Ethnicity: None Last Modified: 2/22/2014
Base: Comments:
Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

3 Pound(s) Dried wheat extract
2 Pound(s) Wheat malt
1 Pound(s) Barley malt
1 Pound(s) Dried malt extract
2 1/2 Ounce(s) Mt. Hood hops
Wyeast Wheat beer yeast
10 3/25

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: Recipe By
