Start brewing bad with Walter Wheat! The ultimate wheat beer that you can make legally... at home... without robbing a train to get the ingredients. We perfected our secret formula but unlike W.W., we are willing to share. We started with a tradtional wheat malt mixed with regular malted barley to get that perfect wheat/barleyblend. Then we left tradtional and added some modern scientific twists that might just set the standard for Wheat Beers. We use acidulated malt and melanoidin malts to add malty crispness (yes malty crispness). Our super complex hop list of Simcoe®, Cascade, and Amarillo® hops put a lot of pop in this beer. And then of course we had to mellow it out a little with a dose of Crystal hops in the finish.
The super secret ingredient? Ok, ok we'll tell you that too.... Brewing Bad Rock Candy added at the end of the boil. These blue raspberry sugar crystals lend a raspberry flavor that completely blends in to add complexity, depth, and we think a little pizazz, but in no way over powers the beer. You won't be thinking Raspberry Wheat, you'll just be wondering how you can get more.
And while a kick ass brewing lab would be a great place to make this beer, you can actually do it right on your stove top, in the kitchen, with the windows open. It might not be as profitable, but we guarantee a whole lot of fun. You better get brewing...
