Rick came in with a couple bottles of the Berliner Weissen Beer he recently brewed. He said that was the easiest beer he has brewed and that it was immensely bright and tasty.
Rick first pitched White Labs Berliner Weisse Blend Yeast and then 4-6 days later he pitched Wyeast 1007 German Ale yeast.
2.5 pounds of Dry Pilsen Malt Extract
2 pounds of Wheat Malt Extract
5 gallons of water
1 ounce Hallertau Hop pellets
1 Whirl-floc tablet
White Labs 630 Berliner Weisse Blend Yeast
Wyeast 1007 German Ale Yeast
5.5 ounces of priming sugar
- Combine 2.5# of Dry Pilsen Malt Extract with 2# Wheat malt extract in 5 gallons of water.
- Bring to a boil and add 1 oz. Hallertau Hop pellets, a whirl-floc tablet and boil for just 15 minutes.
- Cool to below 80F, pitch the Berliner Weisse Blend Yeast (WLP630) and let ferment at 70-80F for 4-6 days.
- The “stuff” floating on your brew is pretty nasty, but necessary, so don’t let if scare you!
- Add the Wyeast 1007 German Ale yeast and allow it to finish fermenting out from roughly a 1.035 SG to about a 1.010 FG.
- Prime with 5.5oz. priming sugar and your Berliner Weissen is ready to enjoy as soon as it carbonates. REALLY simple and remarkably tart and tasty.
