As a homebrewer, this blog will primarily be about beer. However, I will often digress from beer and talk about anything else that comes to mind.

She Likes a Beer!
I have written before about how my wife isn’t a big beer fan and only drinks Miller Lite and Corona Light.I have brewed several beers with her in mind to try to find something she likes.I’ve struck out every time.She has a couple of friends that are fans of craft beer and she had lunch with them the other day.They went to Sine’, which had a Sam Adams tap takeover that day and she ordered their Dunkelweisen and was so excited to tell me that she enjoyed it.I have never had Sam Adams Dunkelweisen.Heck, I don’t think I’ve ever seen their Dunkelweisen, but the first thing I did was hit the Sam Adams website to get some info because of course I’m going to brew one.The information I could glean from their website: 12.6P (@1.051), 5.1% ABV, 13 IBUs, two row pale, wheat malt, carawheat, carafa, Mittelfruh, and a yeast I had never heard of, W-68, which appears to be a Brewing Science Institute yeast.I’ll probably have to stick with WLP300 as it doesn’t appear that BSI caters to homebrewers.
I already had a hefeweizen planned for later this month, so I will probably continue with the plan to brew that and then harvest the yeast for the Dunkelweizen.
