Wheat Wine Partigyle Recipe

In November, my wife and I are expecting our first child, so right now I am looking to make beers that both can and will need to be aged a little. The wife is more than willing (for now..) to let me brew as often as usual after the little guy comes along, but I doubt she and I will be as excited about brewing once he is born. To me, that’s a good excuse to make us a stockpile.

In addition to that, my brewing birthday is August 18th whoooo. I will unofficially have been homebrewing for a full year and to start off my 2nd year I thought an odd, and at the same time interesting, brewing recipe involving a Wheat Wine sounded like fun. Being as frugal as I am though, I decided to partigyle it into three beers. I might even be able to age some the full 21 years and have something (special?) for his birthday.

The plan is to make 3 gallons of Wheat Wine from the first runnings, 5 gallons of Dunkelweizen with the second runnings and if I can get any sugars at all from the third runnings, I am hoping to do a Berliner Weisse experiment. My first attempt at a sour is probably the most exciting just because I’ll either fail big and end up with some gross puke beer or (hopefully) make something awesome.
