I'm all for late hops waggstew especially with Citra
You only have 40ibu with a 1065og beer? No fwh nor 60min addition with this one.
The bitterness is definitely higher than the calculated 40IBU. I chill by immersing my pot in the sink (immersion chiller is on the xmas list) so even the 0min addition will throw some IBU's. The 30min will end up being more like a 45min etc.

The recipe is pretty well as is from the homebrewtalk website but I have slid the later additions closer to 0min to capture more aroma.

Love a good session ale, and that look like the dog's. Just 1 question, why dry hop with citra when it's not in the main hop schedule? Actually 2, do you really get nil IBUs from the steeped hops?
the whirlpool hops do get ibu, its only minimal and when I WP for 5mins I don't include them to the total Ibu count. Plus the recipe calls for a flameout addition and I do a whirlpool.

The Citra with this is an awesome player.....you get a massive pungent citrus aroma on the nose and then you get all that amarillo/centennial flavour on the palate that is smooth.

Putting down a lagerery thing for summer.

ESB I think. Got 1272 and 1469 arriving tomorrow. Enjoy having apa and esb on tap regularly, got a summery ale, tripel and alt all conditioning and a mild on tap.
Saison and lager coming up in the next few weeks to prepare for unpleasant weather, plus another alt (all weather drink that one).

Hey,

I love a hefe, really quaffable beer that is polar opposite to the IPA, IIPA hop heavy beers I have all the time.

A higher % of wheat is what Ive been tempted to do on my next hefe, normally its a even split with wheat and pils/ale malt but with a 2% melanoiden addition, tried a few without it and prefer the mel malt in that style....why the carapils?

I did the carapils because I like a little more substance to my Hefes. I'm by no means an expert wheat beer maker, or even an expert at anything brewing, but I really enjoy that little bit more body and flavour that carapils gives when I can't do a step-mash.

I also like to use more than 50% wheat in my Hefes, just for the flavour it gives.

This was an extended mash by the way, as I left work at 3pm, heated strike water and milled and mashed and managed to get back to work by 4pm. I think an extended mash with more wheat and less Pils is a good idea as the wheat has no diastic power (starch conversion) to speak of.

If I had the time, I'd probably have done a step mash or a decoction mash, which would probably render the carapils un-necessary.

I like that increased wheat %, I think I may try it. Usually my witbier a are about 60% + wheat so why not the hefe. The melanoiden at 2% really adds that body you need, it's replicates a decoction and makes the beer better. Try it on the next one.
