Elderberry Wheat V

Fifth time around for this one. This time no fancy dual yeasts, just Bavarian wheat yeast, which has proven to be the tastiest for this brew. Hops will likely be willamette, but I’ll see what’s in the freezer come brew day.

  • 4 lbs, 8 oz pilsner malt
  • 4 lbs wheat malt
  • 1 lb flaked wheat
  • 0.5 lbs 20L crystal malt
  • 8 oz dried elderberries (boil, 20 minutes)

EDIT and update: fifth time around comes out great. Lesson:: Stick with what works.  No need for mixing yeasts, use Bavarian wheat yeast. Recipe has proven true, so leave it. Don’t fit what ain’t broken.
