Wheat beer 1

Yield: 54 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 can (3.75 pound) Telford's Wheat
\N \N Beer extract
2 cups Granulated sugar
¾ ounce Saaz hops
1 pack Wyeast London Ale yeast

Bring two gallows of water to a boil, then add extract. Add sugar. Add ½ oz. Saaz hops to the boil for 30 minutes. Remove heat. Add ¼ oz.

Saaz hops for aroma. Add cool water to bring wort volume to four gallons. Cool to 75 - 80 degrees. Transfer to primary and pitch yeast.

Ridiculously simple, but very nice and light. Most people who don't like wheat beers like this one, and many people think that this is a commer- cial product, not homebrew! The Telfords extract is probably the major factor in the success of this recipe--done just right. You need to put in some sugar to bring up the level of fermentables, but don't put in too much, or you'll get a cidery taste. Don't follow Telford's instruc- tions, which say that this kit can make five gallons---too watery.
