Lawnmower Hefeweizen v2.0

Postby robwalker » Thu Jul 09, 2015 20:44

This is basically Lawnmower Hefeweizen again but with 75% Wheat Malt/25% Pilsner Malt instead of 50/50.

Pretty much ready to drink once carbonated. The quantity of wheat does make a big difference to the beer - it's somewhat more tart/sharper/grainier with stronger esters, whereas the original version is easier drinking. I'm not sure which I prefer, but I love both. Feel free to sub bittering hops for anything you have to hand, and experiment with different weizen yeasts.

Yes, you've inspired me and I need a quick brew next month. Will probably go for a 60/40, single step, with wlp300 straight in 20L, no starter. Maybe just Bobek or something else noble but not really low AA.

Sorry to bring a post back from the dead! Im looking to brew a Dunkelwiezen at the weekend and am wondering how the Mangrove Jacks M20 compares to the liquid yeasts?

I've never tasted this yeast but I asked the same question here and Tim seemed to like it.

Never enough time....

It makes a good beer with all the appropriate esters in good amounts and balance. Being a yeast driven style, liquid probably has more to offer, but the dry makes a good beer if you're like me and can't be arsed.

Hmmm..... Tempting, it's half the price of liquid and if its just as good - especially since this is a Dunkel, the malt has more to bring to the table so it might be good.....
