We'll we've finally brewed it, the Wheat Stout. It is made with 100% Weyermann malts from Bamberg Germany, Fuggle hops, and Fermentis 04 yeast. 50% of the malt bill is wheat malts, with the wheat producing the majority of color and flavor. The other 50% is Weyermann Pale Ale malt. I don't mind sharing the grist bill for this beer: 10% Chocolate Wheat malt, 10% Caramel Wheat malt, 30% Dark Wheat malt, and 50% Pale Ale malt. One hop addition of Fuggle hops for bittering at an estimated 28 IBU's. It is a 15 plato beer so it should come in around 6.0% abv give or take.
This was a fun brew. Fun because my assistant Aaron was doing most of it, and doing a great job btw! Expect to see it on tap in a few weeks.
