We recently completed 2 Bavarian Hefewizens. We basically riffed a little bit on the stock extract kit, to the first (bottled 6/2) we added a bottle of blackberry extract at bottling. To the other we added ~6lb of Cherry puree to the primary (bottled 7/5.) The blackberry is really tasty. The cherry is drinkable but I wouldn’t call it good.
So anyway, I know hefe’s are yeasty, and yeast can be a laxative, but these things are unbelievable. And I’m not talking about getting hammered here; I’m talking about one or two. I hesitate to drink them if I have anything to do the next morning. With these I do not rouse the sediment to serve “mit hefe”, I pour gently and leave the sediment behind; and still, when morning comes it’s worse than broccoli tacos.
The BJCP doesn’t mention anything about this style turing your insides out. Both blew the top off the primary, but got cleaned and resealed. Could this do it?
WHAT DID I DO WRONG???
