Due to popular demand, here are the recipes for the Hefeweizen I brewed on Chaos Communication Camp 2011, and for the Double IPA I brought to camp for tasting.
Let's start with the Hefeweizen. Target volume was 30l. Grain bill:
- 3.0kg pale wheat malt
- 2.4kg Pilsner malt
- 0.6kg CaraRed malt
Bring a volume of 22l brewing liquid (that's water for the uninitiated) to a temperature of 45°C. Add the coarsely ground malt. Rest for 15 minutes. Raise temperature to 68°C. Rest for 60 minutes. Check completeness of conversion using iodine, wait longer if necessary. Raise temperature to 78°C, then lauter. Sparge with 22l of sparge water, also at a temperature of 78°C. Bring wort to a rolling boil. 15 minutes into the boil, add hops (I used about 15g of Amarillo). Boil for another 45 minutes. Remove trub using whirlpool or filter, cool down, pitch yeast (I used the Wyeast 3068 "Weihenstephan"). Ferment for about 5 days, carbonate to about 6g/l.
And now for the Double IPA. Target volume is 14l. Grain bill:
- 3.0kg pale ale malt
- 0.5kg Melanoidin malt
- 0.5kg CaraRed malt
