The LisaWeizen Wheat Ale {Extract}.

Written by the hubs,

This beer was made in honor of my mother-in-law’s (Lisa) trip to the NW for the Holidays this year. The NW and Portland, in general, are known for it’s hoppy beers and it always seems like when family from less hop forward beer regions come to town their pallets are challenged to find a beer that they are accustomed to drinking. To steer them away from their more ‘domestic’ ways I decided to make a light American Wheat beer. It turned out pretty good and should be at peak freshness when the Root Cellers’ Mother arrives tomorrow.

Here’s the recipe:

Grains & Extracts

3 lbs Pilsner Liquid Malt Extract

1 lb Briees CBW Bavarian Wheat Dried Malt Extract (DME)

1 lb Pilsner Malt

1 lb Wheat Malt

8 oz Crystal 40

4 oz Cara-Pils/Dextrine

Hop Schedule
.5 oz Mt. Hood @ 60 minutes

.5 oz Mt. Hood @ 30 minutes

1 tsp Irish Moss @ 15 minutes

1 oz. Cascade @  5 minutes


1010 Wyeast American Wheat

OG: 1.050

FG: 1.012

Fermented at around 66 to 68 for 14 days in the primary. No secondary.

Drink it up!
