This recipe is from Sam Calagione's book Extreme Brewing. It's called Wildflower Wheat.

The original recipe used Vanguard hops. I used a suggested alternative I had on hand at the house - Hersbrucker.

IBU's were 15 in original recipe. I used a tiny bit more because the hops, while frozen, are well over a year old.

Passed Pawn took IBUs up to about 23 in his, and used Cascade. He got good reviews on his adapted version. For my first try at this recipe, I decided to stay in the original IBU range and adapt later.

I had some Pacman recently rinsed, so I used that yeast. Passed Pawn used S-04. Sam recommended WLP320 or Wy 1010.

I use 100% RO water and build my water from there.

I use BrewVint yeast fuel as a yeast nutrient additive - it was not in the recipe.

My personal mash regimen is a first step for 15 minutes at 131, then up to sacc temp - in this case, 154. I didn't add that to recipe because most don't use a 2 step. Passed Pawn uses single infusion and has had fine success with that.
