Lazy Sunday Candi Wheat (X04)

The idea for this brew presented itself after doing some research into various brewing adjuncts- specifically Candi Sugar. After reading how simple the process is to create this adjunct I decided to drag out a sauce pot and try my hand at inverting some sucrose molecules to make some amber colored candi sugar syrup.

Honey Bunny Sweet Wheat Update

If you were paying attention to the end of the post about the brewing of the Honey Bunny Sweet Wheat you may have noticed that there was a pretty steep drop in gravity from 1.069 to 1.010. This corresponds to a simliar spike in the final ABV of the beer, and terms of taste the higher alcohol content is absolutely front and center. I don’t know at this point if the high fermentation level was from the large amount of DME, a highly attenuative yeast, or from the yeast feasting upon the easily digestible honey sugars but nonetheless there was a higher than expected level of alcohol in the final beer.

Honey Bunny Sweet Wheat (X03)

Not very much to say about this brew. While I’m still planning out the construction of a lautering tun the itch to brew once again kicked in, but I was in the mood to just make something a little less challenging. Therefore, after a little searching around I settled on a honey wheat. While I’ve never really been a fan of wheat beers up to this point with the inevitable heat of summer bearing down upon the region I figured now would be as good a time as any to attempt expanded horizons again.
