We just made a cherry wheat beer two weeks ago. We followed an
all-extract recipie from Charlie Papazian's New
Complete Joy of Home
Brewing called "Cherries in the Snow" with a little modification.
WARNING: This recipie is strictly from memory.
- 1 3.3-lb can of light malt extract syrup
- 3 1-lb cans of wheat malt extract syrup
- 1/2 lb crushed crystal malt
- 2 oz Hallertauer hop pellets (boiling
- 8 lbs. crushed sour cherries
- Wyeast weizenbeer yeast
Bring three gallons of water to 160-deg F. Steep the crushed crystal malt
for 45 min. Strain out. Bring to boil. Add the malt extract syrups and
boiling hops. Boil 1 hour. Remove from heat. Add the crushed cherries
to the hot wort and steep for 10 minutes. Pour the lot (cherries and all)
into a primary fermenter and cool to yeast pitching temperatures. Add the
yeast culture ans ferment 5-7 days in primary. Siphon the beer off the
cherries into the secondary fermenter and let go another seven days or
until fermentation is complete. Bottle with 3/4 cup of corn sugar.
