BJCP Style 15C

This is a simple but award-winning extract recipe for a wheat-bock beer. This brew took first place in the 1995 Bluebonnet Brew-Off Wheat Division, winning the stein-trophy that you see on the left for one of the Meisters of Brew members.

6 lbs. Pale Extract
4 lbs. Wheat Extract
2 lbs. Clover Honey (unpasteurized)
boiling hops: 1 oz Saaz Hops 2.6 Alpha (60 min)

1 package Wyeast #3056 (Bavarian Wheat)
.5 cup Corn Sugar (for carbonation)

1. Pour 2.5 gallons of clean water into your brew pot and bring to a boil. Remove the brew pot from the fire and add the extracts and honey, stirring. Return to the fire and bring to a boil.

4. Add .25 oz. Saaz aromatic hops and boil for another 10 minutes.

5. Remove from burner into an ice bath, and chill to ~80 degrees. Pour into primary fermenter, and add distilled water to bring to 5 gallons.
