Brew Day – The Maple Wheat Experiment

We brewed a 3-gallon batch of a wheat beer with a hint of maple. Yessir, we done did.
I wanted to create a refreshing wheat beer, but with a hint of something other than citrus, which is what all the craft wheat beers seem to have. A friend suggested maple and soon an experimental recipe was created.

Had to start off with a picture of the brewing setup…

Then we added the chiller to the boil (to sterilize it)…and then to chill the wort to the yeast pitching temperature range.
