Beer recipe - Belgian Wheat Beer
ABV 5.5% Color 8 EBC Bitterness 28 IBU
Belgian Wheat Beer is traditionally considered to be a summer drink. It is usually consumed as an aperitif with a slice of orange or lemon.
Glass: Pint Beer Chalice
Temperature: 4-8 °C
For better filtration, add 1-2% Rice hulls. To promote a good banana aroma, under pitch slightly (0.5g/L), low or no aeration, no head pressure, and ferment at high temperatures (22-26 °C). To promote clove-like aroma, as WB-06 is a POF+ yeast strain, do the opposite. And to boost it, do a ferulic acid rest in the mashing.
