Weizen up Duncan

posted on

The third brew on Brewton was a dunkel weizen, which requires a fairly complicated mashing schedule: 6 temperature points and different times at each temperature. Luckily the software I have developed makes it fairly easy to set the temperatures and I just had to sit with a stop-watch to record the time intervals. Eventually my software will manage mash times, rest periods, etc and I just need to feed a beer recipe into the software. But that is a way down the track.

Everything seemed to work out ok and my yeast starter ended up fermenting out of control and blowing out of the glad wrap. Apparently the yeast I used (Wyeast 3068) has a habit of fermenting like crazy. Ended up fermenting out in 5 days which is a new record for me. I have bottled them and they are sitting in boxes waiting for transport to the swap day.

And here is shot of the lava flow of the yeast puking.
