Bottling Day – Franziskaner Clone

Sunday, December 16, 2018


Two days of productivity. Back to back.

The Bottles are all washed up and ready for Franz.

This beer is really sediment heavy. Not just in a wheat beer way. It’s got the clay.

Final Gravity: 1.013 – 4.6% ABV (recipe called for 1.012)

I am well pleased with this beer. It is a good clone of the original. The only thing it is missing is the banana off-flavor, which comes from fermenting at a higher temperature. Since it’s winter, it’s only around 66° up in here. If I brewed in the summer time, it would likely be more true to the original.
