Sneider Meine Hopfenweisse

Postby rlemkin » Tue Nov 11, 2014 15:27

Today I'm brewing up a rough clone of Sneider's Meine Hopfenweisse that was brewed in collaboration with Brooklyn Brewery. It's an 8.2% wheat beer with Hallertauer Tradition and then Saphir hops added late. Thanks to Rob for the idea!

Hoppy fireworks – a new wheat beer style. Shiny golden, slightly reddish strong wheat doppelbock.


4.5l - OG 1.080, 40IBU- 67% efficiency - Brewtoad:https://www.brewtoad.com/recipes/meine-hopfenweisse

800g Pilsner
800g Wheat
150g Pale 2-row (didn't order enough of the above)

Perle - 2g/l - 90 minutes (sub for Tradition)
Saphir - 9g/l - 0 minutes - 30 minute hopstand

MJ Bavarian Wheat yeast

Mash at 66.5c

---

Mashed in and will start boiling soon.. hopefully ready and tasty for christmas :cheers1:

4.5l in a pot on the stove doesn't make for good pictures..

Here's the ghetto flower pot/foam mash tun ;)

It may not make good photo's but the foam idea is a good one. I've been planning something bigger on the same lines ........ it's the lid that tricky :?

Not yet.. a bottle shop near me has this and I need to pick one up. This was the only way I could think of to use up my leftover wheat yeast and Saphir hops :). There are two versions of this beer.. the other uses Amarillo and Palisade.

The Saphir hops do smell lovely, Lemon and maybe a bit of tangerine.

A lemon type aroma/flavour could work , :hmm: More of a fruit involved process i would of thought but you don't know till you try . :D

For the food compost.. for context that's 1.75kg of grain next to the hops.. no wonder my efficiency was horrible.

I envy you. But then I sort of don't, because there's a bottle of the real thing on my stash for Christmas :)

I swear I replied to this, but Chrome is up to no good.

Yeast stalled at 1.020, but eventually did well and went down to 1.010. Reckon it stalled because of the low ambient temps of ~16 Strikes me as quite low for a wheat beer? So that's 7.5% even with my atrocious efficiency on brew day.

Bottled it last week. Low temperature seems to have brought out the bubblegum from the MJ Bavarian Wheat yeast, but with a big - almost candied? - sweet fruit taste and light lemony citrus. It's intriguing and quite promising, but will be good to test once it's fully carbed!

I've still not managed to get a bottle, at this rate I'll have to send it to you for an opinion ;)

Hope it went well twobottles? This got pretty reviews at the brewclub. Definitely quite intense at 7.5%, so toning it down a bit was probably a good idea.

Considering re-brewing this myself in the near future. It was very smooth and balanced given it's strength and the mouthfeel was pretty great..
.
To bring it a bit more into line with the actual recipe I'm aiming for an OG of 1.076 and FG of 1.013/1.014.

First of all I need to find some cheap Saphir hops..

Well it's been how long? I finally got a bottle of this. Pleasantly surprised with the original recipe. It's pretty damn close. I'm pretty pleased to say either of the recipes will get you close . The original recipe was definitely too hoppy and not quite strong enough.


So, a new recipe. Hops down by ~1/3, schedule changed and a change to the mash temperature.



Meine Hopfenweisse (Doppelbock)

Original Gravity (OG): 1.076 (°P): 18.4
Final Gravity (FG): 1.013 (°P): 3.3
Alcohol (ABV): 8.20 %
Colour (SRM): 4.2 (EBC): 8.3
Bitterness (IBU): 40 inc. hopstand

50% Pilsner (DE)
50% Wheat (UK)

2 g/L Perle (US) (7.8% Alpha) @ 90 Minutes (Boil)
1 g/L Saphir (DE) (2.6% Alpha) @ 10 Minutes (Boil)
1 g/L Saphir (DE) (2.6% Alpha) @ 5 Minutes (Boil)
3 g/L Saphir (DE) (2.6% Alpha) @ 30 Minutes (Whirlpool)
2 g/L Saphir (DE) (2.6% Alpha) @ 4 Days (Dry Hop)


Single step Infusion at 67°C for 60 Minutes. Boil for 90 Minutes

Fermented at 20°C with Bavarian Wheat
