Hefeweizen-ish beer using NZ base. Yeast may be harvested from last batch or dry lager sf style brewed as an ale. Rye add represents 6-grain cereal: rye, triticale, corn, oats, barley, wheat,millet. Millet add is actually amaranth, similar numbers. Never will add amaranth or the cereal mix agian - total stuck sparge!!! Anyway, on a high note, the candi sugar was actually 1 oz. of Ham spice mix kit from Dan Wargo!
Recipe is winner of Best Porter at the KLCC Homebrew Fest in 2013. This version uses Boston tap water modified with chalk to reach 72 residual alkalinity.
Notes: I made 3 qt. yeast starter 24 hrs ahead of time using vermont yeast from GigaYeast - if it doesn't work out, pitch one of the yeast packets into the starter, and an hour or so later you'll have it. Molasses optional.
