Brew #42: Hefeweissbier

April 6, 2013

No-frills hefeweizen with some Weyermann’s acidulated malt added, hoping for that sour tart flavour evident in my first wheat beer. Mash efficiency at 81 per cent, always a bit low when brewing a wheat beer. Wort crystal clear.

Overshot the gravity by 3 points, oh well.
