Ingredients:

Malts

4 lbs Pale 2-row Malt

4 lbs. Red Wheat Malt

Hops

1/2 oz. Halletauer 5%a, 60 minutes

YeastWyeast 3191 PC Berliner Weisse Blend (contains Ale yeast, Brett, and Lacto) or White Labs WLP630 Berliner Weisse Blend (contains German Weizen Ale yeast and Lacto)

Other: 12 oz. rice hulls (to help with sparging the sticky wheat mash)

Instructions:

Mash all grains with rice hulls for 1 hour at 148 degrees.

Sparge at 170 degrees.

One hour boil with hop regimen above.

Ferment at 65-68 degrees.

Rack to keg or secondary and age for 4 months. (Test small sample monthly to see how sourness progresses. Longer aging will increase the sour flavors.)
