So this is my second batch of beer I am going to brew so I thought I would give you my idea behind the beer before I give the ingredients. My goal…we will see if it works out…is to make a citrus forward wheat beer that isn’t very bitter with a mid-range hop punch and a smooth finish.
Pale 2-Row Brewers Malt 5 lb
White Wheat 5 lb
Centennial .5 oz at 60 mins
Cascade .5 oz at 15 mins
Centennial .5 oz at 0 mins
Cascade .5 oz at 0 mins
Citra .5 oz at 0 mins
Coriander 0.5 oz at 5 mins
Sweet Orange Peel 0.5 oz at 5 mins
1.5 pounds of cane sugar at 15 mins
Yeast: Safale US-05
So with all that being said, here are my targets prior to brewing:
Original Gravity 1.062
Final Gravity 1.015
I added the cane sugar in the recipe last minute because I wanted a beer north of 6%, anyone have any ideas of another type of sugar I could use to bump the ABV that wont cover up the hops?
Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
