Procedure Mashing: Be sure to use the 6 row to help with the unmalted wheat conversion. Otherwise (from everything that I've read) you'll undershoot your OG. ALSO dont forget the rice hulls. I would suggest up to 2 lbs... wheat almost makes up 1/3 of the grain bill. There's no rice hull option in the grain box. Primary: Start the fermentation for the first two days at standard temps (- 70 F). Then bump it up to mid 70's for a day, then 80ish. Then you can bring it back down once your ready to rack it to the secondary. Secondary should be standard PS- This is a double batch, halve everything if you want a 5.5 gallon batch.
