Got stupid high efficiency. Had planned this at 11 gallons, ended up topping up fermenter with 2 gallons of spring water to bring it down to 1.047, and yeild 13 gallons. IBUs took a hit, and went from 10 to about 8.
Had also planned the hop additions @ 45 & 15 minutes, but when it came time to knock out there was no cold water (brewing at Sockeye for Big Brew.) Ended up boiling for an additional 15 minutes.
Brewed for 2011 Treasure Valley Organic Homebrew Challenge. Could not source organic pilsen malt locally and had to substitute with organic 2-row.
Bottle conditioned 2 cases, and kegged the rest. Flat and warn it was boring, but clean and refreshing. Moderate banana/clove/citrus aroma. Body seems light for 1.014 beer. Wheat leaves a bit of a citrus tart in the finish. Anxious to try it carbonated to 3.2 volumes of co2 and cold.
