wheat beer, weizen, all-grain
Source: Dan Morey (firstname.lastname@example.org), HBD Issue #1351,
In this recipe, wheat made 27% of total grist. I would note
that this beer was fermented warm (77F). The beer was very tart and
had hints of cloves in the nose. I have also made an *American Wheat*
(about year and a half ago) with wheat making 43% of the grist,
fermented with Nottingham dry ale yeast at cooler temperatures (62F).
This beer had the very same characteristics, tart with a hint of
clove! I still beleive that the yeast plays the greatest role in
producing this clove character, but I believe that the wheat plays a
large role in this flavor than generally accepted in homebrew
circles. One final note, a group of brewer's in my homebrew club did
a not so scientific study of the affects of yeast. One yeast, EDME
dry, produced a wheaty characteristic (though the beers brewed where
not wheat beers).
