Notes

From Leah Dienes, owner/brewer at Apocalypse Brew Works in Louisville, Kentucky. First brewed this as a homebrewer in 1989, to recreate a smoked Hefeweizen she enjoyed in Bamburg, Germany.

This beer won multiple medals at homebrew competitions, including the President's Choice Award at the FOSSILS' Smoked Beer Competition.

The malts she used were from Weyermann. There is no info on water chemistry, so you might recreate the water chemistry from Bamburg, where this beer originated.

She brewed this with a step mash - starting at 148F and holding for 15 minutes, than raising it to 152 for the remainder of the 90 minute mash.

The original gravity target number is accurate - 1.053. Adjust brewhouse efficiency or grain bill to make it fit your system and process.
