While patiently waiting for my American Amber Ale to finish brewing, yours truly went back out to the local homebrew shop to pick up some more ingredients for my next brew day! I’m planning on making a nice, hearty 3-gallon batch of a Dark Afternoon Wheat beer. As usual, I’ll be using the all-grain technique to brew this beer.
Here’s the final recipe I came up with:
- 3 lb. 6 oz. of pre-crushed Briess grain
- 2 lb. 4 oz. Vienna
- 2 lb. 4 oz. Red Wheat
- 10.5 oz. Cara-pils/Dextrine
- 7.5 oz. Crystal 60L
- 4 oz. Chocolate
The next brew day is set for tomorrow. My wife accompanied me to the brew shop to help with collecting the grains and milling them, and she even seems excited to help me out tomorrow with the next batch! As usual I’ll keep you posted with the results!
