Dunkleweizen Fermenting

One of our new brewers, Ben Blackstock, wanted some help with his first all-grain brew and came over last weekend. We brewed ten gallons of Dunkleweizen for next month’s meeting. We nailed the OG at 1.051. I used WLP300 and he used WLP351. We will see how different the two beers end up. Here is a pick of his in the carboy fermenting at 68 degrees to get more fruity notes.

    Update: tonight we checked the gravity on both of our brews. Jay’s still had a nice krausen while mine had settled out. the gravity of each were in the same range 1.020. Not there yet. Jay’s brew had more banana. My brew had a little banana and some clove.
