Homebrew 11: Golden Strong Wheat Monday, March 03, 2014, 09:33 PM

The recipe for this beer is below. It is inspired by Uniboue Don De Dieu(oops, see note 1). I foundsomewhat of a clone HERE which I used as a base with a few changes. Most notably, I changed the yeast and I used cane sugar. The yeast I went to is the one from Duvel Brewery which is a classic golden strong.

My plan is to brew it and let it sit in primary for 6-8 weeks (at least 2-3 if not more in the chamber). I will then bottle and condition for another 6-8 weeks. I plan to ferment around 68.

Note 1: I_wanted_to do a Don De Dieu clone but I this recipe clones La Fin Du Monde. Oh well, itshouldn't matter. That is also a good beer.

I actually took these on the computer while I was going.

Fermented at 68F until March 7th (I think). Then cold crashed at 1*C until2014-04-24

2014-04-24 Bottling:

The final beer tasted rather awefull. I do not know if it is doomed or if it just need more time given the high alcohol. The taste wasn't of the harsh alcohols but rather maybe a bit cidery (could be from the sugar). I guess we'll wait and see but I do not have high hopes
