German Weissbier with too much head

Recommended Posts

German Weissbier in the droid today. Second time but forgot to comment on the first, however brew log tells me I rated it highly. Look forward to it again.

Nice one Mark , always a good drop . Have done it a few times. I going to have some of the last batch i did where i put the fermentation temp to 22 to bring out the esters and make it more like a Hefe . Will let you know tonight since they are 5 or 6 weeks aged now 🙂

Will be interested in your opinion as I’m not sure about “extra” esters.

More wanted to push the banana sweetness to go a good Hefe . Always like the banana/clove/wheaty flavors of a good weissbier 😄

Will update tonight . I have a bottle of the original Weissbier i did and a higher fermented Weissbier in the fridge to do a side by side. The original is a few weeks older though so maybe not true representation.

What have you changed from the original?

Talking to Liam from Brewart he said best way was to play with fermentation temps.. so moved the temp from 17 - 22 degrees . Next time I will try changing the propogation temp , as i still added yeast at tap temp water ( 30ish degrees) next time i will add at propogation temp 🙂 . This lion city i currently have in has behaved heaps differently to last time with that change

What a bloody top drop this one is. Kegged 14/6, to the Brewprint recipe other than instead of 3 x X2 did 2. Has it effected the taste, don’t think so. Just an enjoyable beer. Ps really suits me as don’t enjoy too much banana/esters flavours.
