This beer was a bit cloudy and should have some Irish moss. I'm not
really sure what the honey added to this beer (more experimentation is
in order). However, it turned out so well that I won't omit it in the
future. This was a very good extract-based recipe (it well nigh
- 6 pounds, Williams wheat extract
- 1 pound, crystal malt
- 1/2 pound, toasted barley
- 1 pound, honey
- 2 ounces, Cascades hops (boil)
- 1/2 ounce, Cascades hops (finish)
- 1 package, Wyeast wheat yeast
Make a 2-quart starter before brewing. Steep crystal and toasted barley
in 4 gallons water for 40 minutes (use grain bags to make this easier).
Add extract, honey and bittering hops. Boil wort for 1 hour. Remove
from heat. Add finishing hops and steep 2 minutes. Chill and pitch
yeast. After 3 days, rack to secondary. Bottle after 8 days.
