Classification: wheat beer, weizen, weissbier, all-grain

This is my most recent favorite all-grain recipe.

Brown/Golden ale. Light, refreshing and a nice aroma of chocolate malt for interest. Could be made with extracts by using 1 can each of pale malt and wheat extract syrup (or powder). Easy drinking beer.



Treat 7 gallons water with 1/4 ounce gypsum. Mash in 8 quarts at 170F for a target of 156F. When beer is fermented, prime with 1/2 cup sugar, fine with 1/2 teaspoon of gelatin, keg or bottle.
