If you are using English grains then avoid the first steps and start at 64c , Many malts are highly modified and mashing in at low temps could harm the beer , so I use malts that are less modified and are ideal for step mashing and decoction (when i bother) such as weyermann or dingeman (maltmiller sells em) . Yes you can brew this way when doing BIAB , in fact it is easier than 2 (or 3) tier vessel brewing as you can adjust temp as wanted . :thumb:

Thanks pittsy. This looks like a tasty recipe. Have you lowered the wheat % ?

Hi Nick yeah just a little , not for any real reason just the way the recipe ended up . All brewed on Sunday , hit my mash temps and did my time as per recipe spot on . Og was 1047 though . Have skimmed first lot already this morning , going in for another skim in a bit , so hopefully a good supply of konig yeast .

smells like wlp351 bavarian yeast , sulphur ish , slight with some nicer smells but didn't wish to lap it up long enough to find out other smells . Always wait till off smells go before kegging btw to anyone reading as it'll take longer to go

Wish I'd have thought of that before I bottled mine. I doubt the sulphur smell is going anywhere :whistle:

Don't know what happened there :shock:

Anyway, many years ago I bought about 16 bottles of beer, all different and all from southern Germany, my mate worked there at one time. We were going to have a beer tasting (piss-up)

After an excellent night we found a clear winner ............ it was a bottle of Konig Ludwig Weissbier. Wished I'd bought more!

Hi Rui as far as using the yeast from a bottle of konig went then it was great , no problems , but i must admit I like the wlp 380 better . Well worth giving it a go , not sure if Schneider uses weiss yeast to bottle condition , many use lager yeast .I would bet the schwaben brau use weiss yeast to bottle condition but that's just a guess .
