Great Tom! Glad to hear it worked out!

I haven't made this one in ages... maybe it's time! Smile

Kal,
Yea it's definately time to brew it again, especially since summer is coming.

I brought a keg of this to a party over this past weekend and about 2.5 gallons was consumed. It was a big hit.

On a side note:
When Comparing this next to a bottle of Weihenstephaner, it's pretty close but somehow the commercial example has some amazing yeast fragrance.

That's interesting, because I find I prefer mine over the commercial version. I find mine is much fresher tasting. At the end of the day the recipe only tells part of the story. Process is important too. Cheers!

Hi Kal,
I've brewed 4 or 5 of your recipes on my clone of your setup now, all with fabulous success so far! I have this weissbier in the fermenter, doing a lovely job of bubbling away. My question is, do I need to transfer this one to the carboys/brite tanks like with the pale ale and NEIPA etc. or can I go straight from fermenter to keg?
Thanks, as always, for sharing your skills, knowledge and experience! Mug

Glad to hear that the beers are turning out great and you're enjoying them! For this beer go straight to kegs or bottles. No finings prior to packaging, no brite tank/carboys. Cheers!

Kal, Having successfully brewed your Belgian Wit, I am about to brew this one. What about crash cooling? Is it usually done with this style of beer? I was thinking a couple of days crash cooling could remove some of the excessive yeast, but still leave sufficient flavour and cloudiness.

Sure - you can do that. You'll be doing that anyway when you chill. There will certainly be enough in suspension even with a crash chill before bottling/kegging.

Just brewed a fresh batch.. Only real change from last was I am using RO water now, so I am matching the recommended water profile vs having to guess what the city is sending this month.

As before, it went from 1.045 to 1.012 in about 3 days.

Recipe has been re-written and moved to our new site. One thing I've changed is to alter the grain bill to be 50/50 (instead of 60/40) wheat/pilsner as I find I enjoy it more.

See: https://shop.theelectricbrewery.com/pages/weizen-weissbier

This thread will remain open for questions. Cheers!

Kal
