Black Coffee Wheat

Beer Style: Dunkelweizen (15B)
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons



I called this one black coffee wheat because of the almost coffee like flavor. Most of my friends love it as do I. This one is keeper. It did seem to improve with age (if you can keep your hands off it). I have been tempted to add more roasted barley for a stronger roasted flavor but have not done it yet, maybe next time I brew this one.


  • 8lbs Wheat LME
  • 3lbs Light LME
  • 1/4lb Chocolate malt
  • 1/4lb Black Patent
  • 1/4lb Crystal 80
  • 1/4lb Roasted Barley
  • 1oz of Hallertauer 60min
  • 1/2 oz Hallertauer 30min
  • 1/2 oz Hallertauer 5min
  • Heifeweizen ale Yeast

Additional Instructions

Primary Ferment: 1 week
Secondary Ferment: 2 week

Soak all grains at 150 degrees for 30mins. Remove grains and add LME and bring to a boil. Boil for 60 mins adding hops as listed. Cool and pitch yeast. Ferment until done and rack to secondary. I left in secondary for 2 weeks and then tried to age for awhile, but it tasted so good ended up drinking it all.
