(I’ll put a picture of the finished article in when I remember…)
What is it with me and wheat beers? I like them, but they seem to want to conspire against me when I make them.
Here’s the original recipe here: https://yeastismybitch.com/2015/05/26/hefeweizen-mk-ii-in-a-braumeister/
This time around I got the carbonation pretty much how I wanted it, the mouthful is generous and creamy and the yeast brought forth lashes of banana and bubblegum.
It’s a beautiful luminous pale golden with a nice haze and everything…
So what let’s it down you may ask…
Well it’s a little light on the bitterness…so it’s lovely in taste but doesn’t have that subtle bitter edge that should really set it off and balance the sweetness out a bit.
And the head. Oh good God, the head…It has a really nice head to start off with…and then it collapses, spectacularly, to leave a really odd smattering of very dense foam islands…a bit like broken cloud on a summer’s day…so Christ alone knows what happened there.
The next one will be great, I’m sure. I might also do it with WLP300 – not because it’s better than the Mangrove Jack’s yeast, but because it’s just plain mental – and I like that in a yeast!
