I’ve been experimenting with different ways to get a better extract efficiency now that I’ve converted to full-mash brew-in-a-bag, and this time I fell short (thus the half pound of added DME). I suspect the problem lies in sparging, as BiaB typically gets pretty good mash efficiency.
Brewing a new style is always fun, especially when the finished product comes so close to what you’re after. Though Window Seat was my first dunkelweizen attempt, it certainly won’t be my last.
