Hersbrucker recipe

Recommended Posts

I ordered some hops last week that still aren't here. So, I need something to brew. I've got 8 oz of Hersbrucker and I was thinking about 5 lbs of wheat malt, 4 lbs of Munich with a .25 oz FWH, .50 oz 20 min addition and .50 addition at 10 minutes. Gonna use Nottingham yeast.
Also considered 5 lbs of pilsner rather than wheat.
Sorry this looks like this, using my phone without BeerSmith.
Input is welcome!
Thanks!

some kind of german lager maybe? or a kolsch type beer since you're using nottingham. ferment on the low end so it comes out clean.

won't you have to boil longer with the pilsner? not sure where you are i live in the south and cook outside (covered porch). not sure i'd could stand an additional 30 min outside. i'm fairly drippy after 60min. ;)

Yep Jim, right hear in, at the moment, steamy Virginia! I believe we slid down to the rainforest this summer.
Hasn't quit raining and humid as hell!
95F on my covered patio at the moment and about 92F or so tomorrow.

I don't mind the heat. I still tolerate it very well so the extra 30 mins is no problem!

Thanks for the input guys!

This is probably my finished product!
