brew day.
last night i spilled a bit (maybe 1/2 pound?) of wheat on the floor, replaced it with half pound of 2 row. im going to leave the recipe as it was originally because i dont know exactly how much wheat was spilled. probably minor detail.

also axed the phosphoric acid in lieu of acid malt

updating recipe yeast - used to be witbier but i decided to go manchester this time. witbier phenols maybe dont go with raspberry and i was using manchester for blueberry earlier this week anyway.
dusting off this recipe for the uncap hang suite project. only thing im changing is adding our tap water to the profile and will prob need to adjust pH

?? 2019
I just realized I accidentally added 1 more lb wheat that I was supposed to use for another beer. Adjusted the recipe to include it and adjusted efficiency.

======raspberry wheat mods 5/9/19 ===========
last time i did 1056 which was pretty clean. i think this time ill try something more traditional, there is a wy1010 american wheat? or maybe use one of the german ones....? recipe from wedding beer was wy3333 german wheat.

removing the coriander and orange peel.

also adding 2.5 lbs raspberry. will get frozen, thaw, blend, and add after fermentation is going.

======initial notes 2/21/19===========
pieced together from 1)
2) my extract recipe from last two years :

going more for the blue moon. alternatively was thinking about trying for the super white super hazy allagash white but im not sure teal and nana like that one as much.
