This is a recipe I created for a club competition, and what you see below is the original recipe scaled up to 11 gallons from the original 10 gallons (accounts for packaging losses better). I like this beer, though it was distinctly lacking any honey character and I think the info I’ll take from the experience is that it takes more than 4 lbs of honey in 10 gallons of beer to have a meaningful flavour impact.
I split the batch and fermented half with WLP023 and the other half with Bootleg Biology’s Baltifunk Mega Blend, which came from a collection of dregs from the Milk the Funk meet up at HomeBrew Con 2016.
I have created another version of this recipe to act as the beer I shall probably make in the future should I want a basic wheat beer on tap, as a neutral base for yeast testing, and as a sour base for golden sours.
