Mr Beer Wild Wheat - 1 yeast or 2?

Recommended Posts

@MRB Josh RI am brewing the Mr Beer Wild Wheat Recipe.  In the instructions it says to add the yeast from *both* the American Ale (Std Mr Beer Yeast) and Bavarian Wheat (wheat beer yeast).

I have followed the recipe.

 

Is it correct to add both yeasts?

 

If not, and I have already added both yeasts, what temperature should I keep the fermenting LBK at?

 

Thanks - PS this question was also presented on today's live twitch stream re brewing infections and how to handle.  Just confirming what to do.  Thanks!

I double checked this recipe and it is correct to add both yeasts. It's ok to ferment this slightly warm, if you wish. 68-75 F.

Thanks Josh!  I was seeing pretty strong fermentation.  I will take out of my temp controlled fridge which is in the mid 60s and temp controlling a hazy ipa batch.

PS - @MRB Josh R

I do enjoy the live streams and I do pick up more of the *why* for the various caveats on brewing, which helps my inquisitive mind!
