Mark, aka TDA asked about my Wheat recipe so here goes. I hope this is nice if anybody else makes it, I bloodywell enjoy this style (SWMBO thinks I enjoy it just a little bit too much!

It's a partial mash and relatively easy I suppose. the key thing is of course the yeast. The mash needs a protein rest etc but note that I only mash a kilo of cracked wheat with a kilo of Pale malt - just for the enzymes :p . I stop the sparge when the SG gets down to about 1010. You'll also see I have pretty ordainary efficiency. My new mash setup isn't quite what I want yet and I'm still experimenting a bit.

That's great Trev. I may convert the recipe to AG and give it a bash down the track. I will be sure to let you know how it goes.
