Est .10g water retained per grain lb; 18% boiloff per hr
Therefore, starting vol of 6.5g - 1.2g lost in grain = 5.3g post-mash.
Add 3.5g sparge = 8.8g pre-boil.
Lose 2.37g during 90min boil of 8.8g, yields 6.42g before chill, wStrainer
...just above the 6.0g recipe fermenting bucket target to be safe

Notes
  • Mill grain twice. Dont use 2-row or Maris Otter
  • Yeasts: White Labs WLP300 or Wyeast 3638 for banana; White Labs WLP380 Hefeweisen IV for clovey. Drier options are: Fermentis Safebrew WB-06, Danstar Munich German WB Yeast.

  • Dont leave heat on after meeting mash-in temp (163).
  • Sparge and drain while boil kettle heats up.

  • Ferment toward top range of the yeast tolerance, ie 68-73F

    Other recipe notes:
  • Color should be SRM 3-9; IBU 10-15 (KCBierCo is 13)
  • Boil 90mins to reduce DMS -- Dimethyl Sulfide (DMS) is a sulfur compound produced during fermentation of beer that has the aroma of cooked or creamed corn. Boil hot, boil long, cool fast, and dont cover during boil or until cooled. See https://beerandbrewing.com/off-flavor-of-the-week-dms/
  • Consider open-bucket fermenting -- Bacchus and Barleycorn said NO WAY, youll get all kinds of other stuff active and wont end up with a Hefeweizen.
