Weiss-Bix (beer kit + grain recipe)

This recipe takes an original and creative approach on brewing a German Weiss style, using a beer kit and Weet-Bix™. Thanks to Brew for Africa customer Robbie Cooper for this one! Makes 20 litres.

Ingredients

Method

Bring 3 liters of water to the boil and add the Weet-Bix, optionally using a grain steeping bag.. Boil for 30 minutes. Strain (or remove the grain steeping bag and squeeze it). Let cool with the lid on the pot. Add the boiled Weet-Bix liquid to the beer kit in the fermenter, but only top it up with cold water to 20 litres and pitch the fermentis yeast. Discard the yeast supplied with the beer kit or put it aside for use with another brew. Let ferment as usual and bottle. Let mature for at least 4 weeks.

Note that the flavour produced by wheat beer yeasts is very much dependent on the fermentation temperature. For WB-06 the recommended fermentation temperature is 15-24°C. At the low end of this range the yeast will produce more phenols (resulting in spicy flavours of cloves) while at the high end the fruity esters will dominate (resulting in banana-like flavours). An intermediate temperature will produce a balance of the two.
