Earlier in the afternoon Kim "smacked" the Wyeast yeast pack to release nutrients for the yeast to feed on. The package inflates to show that the yeast is healthy and active.
|Wyeast 3068 Weihenstephan Wheat|
The recipe for the Bavarian Hefeweizen is the following:
- 6 lbs Wheat malt syrup (additions at 60 and 15 min)
- 1 lbs Wheat dry malt extract (at 15 min)
- 1 oz Tettnang hops (60 min)
- Wyeast 3068 Weihenstephan Wheat yeast
The fermentation bucket started bubbling within 12 hours and had a scent of bananas. This beer only ferments for two weeks. In the meantime, I'm trying to get enough bottles.
