I've done 2 100% wheat batches, and just brewed two more, with a recipe along the lines of this one.


  • 6# can of Irek's Unhopped (orange print on label)
  • 1# Crystal barley Malt 20 lov (for steeping until boil)
  • 1# Wheat malt (also for steeping)
  • 1.5 - 2 oz Hallertauer Hops - I'm not a big hop fan, and this comes

For one I also added 5.5# frozen raspberries, though that started out almost like raspberry soda, it mellowed well, though a bit tart. I also use honey for priming instead of afterburner corn sugar. Steep the grains in a couple gallons of water over high temp. Strain out just before it starts to boil. Add the Ireks and boil hops (and honey) boil for an hour, add finishing hops last
