Alrighty, I have a couple of small BIAB batches under my belt, and have sorted out my processes.
Have also invested in a 40L pot and an immersion chiller.

Comments, suggestions, abuse welcome. I already have the ingredients.

Am I right in thinking Brewmate doesn't support step mashing?

Try fermenting the 3068 at 17 deg. I got that tip from Brewing Classic Styles and it throws a good load of banana out at that temp. :beerbang:

Hey mate,

Did you make up the hop schedule yourself?

Most recipes i've seen for Hefeweizen's have a single 60min hop addition of either Hallertau Mittlefrueh or Hallertau Hersbrucker

with a ferulic acid rest, i get lots of clove and not much banana at all @ 17 deg, i get more banana @ 19 deg if pitching the recommended yeast cell count

stick to a simple 60% wheat malt 40% pilsner malt grist

a single 60 min bittering addition to 15 IBU of your favourite noble hop

Did a bit of searching around, a few Franziskaner clone recipes have late editions of Spalt and Perle. I substituted the Spalt with Hallertau.

Noted re the temp! Mr Malty tells me I need a 1.2L starter.
Most of the Franziskaner recipes I found have 70% Wheat.
