Wheat beer recipe


I have 5 packs of wheat DME. Any great suggestions as to what recipe I should use make them into something tastier? Thanks, Hippocampus

About 60/40 ratio wheat malt to pilsner malt. Halertau hops boiled for 60 mins. No flavour or aroma hops. Aim for an OG of about 1.045.

Mini-mash a little corn for sweetness, and I'd drink to that. :)

I make mine all grain. Can I add corn for sweetness into the grain bill?

What form corn do you use for mashing? Dried corn like what is used for popcorn? > "Al Klein" wrote in message > news: snipped-for-privacy@4ax.com... > >>On Sun, 24 Apr 2005 00:40:33 +1000, "Josh Button" >> said in alt.beer.home-brewing: >> >> >>>About 60/40 ratio wheat malt to pilsner malt.

No idea. Never used corn. For sweetness, I usually go for crystal malt. But I like my wheats light in colour, so I don't want to add any colour to the mash.

Corn and halertau - can life get any better?

Most places that sell grain also sell corn, oats and wheat in forms ready for mashing. Or I suppose you could boil whole kernel raw corn, but I've never experimented with corn.
