Brew #15: KevätWehnä (Hefeweizen)

March 14, 2012

Did some calculations for the first time how fast 20L Braumeister ramps up the temperature between mashing phases – 1 minute 18 seconds per degree Celsius without any insulation, lid closed.  Also, even with 50% wheat in the grain bill there were no funneling problems and no wort shooting out. Everything went very smoothly although I did come short the OG by 3 points – I’ll put that down to sparging with 6L against less than 5 kg of grain. 22L into the fermentor, 1L left in the kettle (no Protafloc). Happy days!
