Cream of Wheat, January 30 2010
5 Gallons, All Grain, Single Infusion Mash, 90 Minute Boil
6 lbs. Red Wheat
3 lbs. Pilsner
Single Infusion Mash at 148°F
1 lb. Dried Rice Extract (at 20 minutes, not intentionally)
1 oz. Hallertauer for 60 min.
White Labs WLP810 San Francisco Lager Yeast (vial straight, no starter), thanks Kara!
OG: 1.058 @ 66°F
FG: 1.013 @ 64°F
Tasting Notes: Easy drinker and wheaty-yummy. Cranking up the CO2 to about 13psi to give it more sparkle. Hopefully, that will also strengthen the delicate wheat aromas. I typically achieve a lower final gravity but I'm thinking that WLP810 doesn't attenuate a well as WLP001. Also, maybe I simply needed to pitch a higher quantity of yeast.
