- I tried to do the mash without gelatinizing/preboiling the raw wheat. I have always done this in the past. It looks like it was a bad decision. The mash efficiency was extremely low at 55% (I usually get 68%), so I had to add 500g of dry wheat extract to hit an OG of 1.050. This time I had a new malt mill, a Barley Crusher, so I would really expect a higher efficiency. So, next time I will gelatinize.
- Remember to buy enough coriander. I intended to add 15g coriander seeds, but had only 6g left. I guess that's fine as this beer is intended to be a straightforward wit anyway.
