Re: All-grain Paulaner Clone - German Wheatbeer

Post by tizoc » 2 months ago

Bottled this one yesterday, color was great. I tasted the sample I took to measure the FG (1.006 btw) and it tasted very Paulaner-esque, but there was something off, I don't know how to describe it but I didn't like it much. I hope it gets better after the bottle conditioning and carbonation.

One issue I know I had was fermentation temperature, which was around 25-26C, it is something I'm trying to fix because fermentation temperature has been an issue in all my 3 brews so far being that it is summer here. I brewed an IPA yesterday and so far I have been able to keep it at 19-20C by putting the fermenter in water with some ice bags that I have to change a few times a day.

Well good job with it... Remember that having Consistent Temperature is as or more important than having the exact proper temperature. Sounds like you've got a pretty good system worked out... A basement or cellar would be great. And a temperature controlled fermentation chamber even better. But we don't always start out with what we will want. Anyhow, good job putting time and effort to controling your temperature. 

One additional thought is to "brew with the seasons"... Saisons in the heat of the summer with your temp control. Lagers in the winter. Ales in the fall and spring.  ;)

Ouch. Well, I'm sacrificing constant temperature here to lower temperature. My range right now is 19-22C (during the night, without me around to replace the ice, it reaches 22C, the rest of the day it is at 19-20C). The alternative is a constant 26C. I just wrapped the fermentor in a cotton t-shirt now to see how well it does, may save me the work of replacing the ice bags very couple hours.

I like the putting the fermenter inside a garbage can of water to regulate and hold temperatures. Then when necessary adding ice bags a few times a day... With some yeasts it will be hard without doing this to get the temperature down.  I used to do this before getting a temperature controlled fermentation vessel (chest freezer with temperature controller).

The Hefeweizen recipe in BCS recommends fermenting at 17C. I brewed this last month with good results. It was fermented in a 4 cubic foot Danby freezerless refrigerator with a Inkbird temperature controller.

Just wanted to drop by and thank for this recipe!
I tried this recipe (with some small adjustments to the available ingredients and my small pot) and it turned out great!
Already did it a second time, with the added bonus of washing the yeast from the first batch.

cheers
