So if you’ve had Abitas strawberry harvest then your on the right track. I want something a bit more bread/cake/wheat. I looked at what they use and it’s technically a Pilsner with wheat. I bit of mt hood hops and strawberries. So I made up a recipe, hoping to increase the “shortcake” flavors. This would just be a 1 gallon test batch. But what I am wondering the most is with the specialty grains. Change them? Amounts? And should I use a clean yeast like Safale 05 or something that will help with the fruit/bread like German wheat frm white labs.
1.2 lb briefs Golden light DME. 80%
1.2 oz wheat, flaked 5%
1.2 oz belgian Munich malt. 5%
1.2 oz biscuit malt. 5%
1.2 oz caramel 10L. 5%
O.20 oz US tettnang. 60 min
Saale 05 or the German wheat /German pilsner is also a thought.
I just want it to be crisp. Sweet. Shortbread like and easy to pound in the pool. Something I can drink a ton of when it’s hot and not get smashed.
Thanks for any input. Oh also for the strawberry I’m just gonna try the LD Carlson extract. I’ve used the watermelon and have been very happy with it.
