Here's my honey-wheat recipe (extract). The yeast I used was cultivated
from a Fransiskaner Hefe-Weissbier. I'm unsure if this is a bottling
yeast, but the resulting beer has a light body and good head retention.
A nice drinkable summer beer (IMHO).In retrospect I'd be inclined to use 1
lb of a stronger honey (Australian blue gum ;-) and 1lb of dry malt extract
to give better body.
- 1 can Munton&Fison's Premiere Weizen
- 2 lbs Light honey (strawberry clover)
- 1 lb Dextrose
- A suitable Weizen yeast (preferably liquid)
- 3/4 cup sugar or equivalent malt extract
Boil honey, Weizen extract and dextrose for 15 minutes in 1.5 gal water.
Tip into fermenter, and add water to make up 5 gal. Allow to cool and
add yeast. Fermentation should be complete in around 3-4 days. Bottle
with priming sugar.
