Beer recipe - Special Wheat Beer
|ABV 6%||Color 35 EBC ||Bitterness 25 IBU|
This Special Wheat beer is brewed with a lager yeast. This unique combination creates a refreshing and very drinkable beer with subtle fermentation aromas well balanced with herbal and spicy hop notes.
For a better wort filtration, add 2% of rice hulls to the mash.
Also, don’t forget this is a lager yeast and the fermentation temperatures have to be appropriate for it.

Step 4: Cold Aging and Packaging
Cold age the beer at -1°C for 5 days, remove the residual yeast, and carbonate until 2.8-3.0 volumes of CO2. The beer is ready to package and drink. Enjoy!
