Improvenents on my weizen

Post by brhenrio »

Traditional wheat beer.

66% white wheat malt
33% bohemian pils
Wyeast 3068
0.5 oz hallertau blanc FWH
0.5 oz hallertau blanc flameout

I got the flavours i wanted from the yeast, and this was a very good beer, but it was missing one thing, would have liked a little more citrus flavour, especially in the aftertaste. Suggestions?

Sure. How much of a citrus flavour do you want? Use an ounce and go from there.

Background noise is kind of what im looking for. You can detect it but it isnt dominant.

I have seen a lot of people dry hopping with 4 ounces per keg or even up to 8 ounces. In my opinion that would be way too much for this style.

I brewed a hefe last year using wet hallertau hops I had just harvested. I did an addition at 30 minutes and at flameout, I threw in a handful of wet chinook hops. I used wb-06 yeast and the beer was fantastic. It had this slight lemony tang to it that lingered on the palate, but wasn't at all overpowering and the yeast character still came through. I'm about to brew this beer again with wet hops and will try adding in a bit of chinook at flameout.

If you want a citrusy character to your wheat beer, perhaps you could try a small whirlpool with centennial or chinook or another citrusy hop. A dry hop with citra may be too overpowering and could cover up those delicate yeast notes.
