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…


Here’s a picture of Eric, while we were waiting for the wort to boil…

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

The final product. Now we wait.
