Guys or scotrat,

I friend of mine wants to start brewing and he wants B52 (which he's sampled at my place a few times) for his first brew. Only problem is, I do all grain and I've apparently lost my original extract recipe.

Can somebody Please either post or e-mail me a copy of B52 extract (for 5 gal).
My E-Mail is <swampy@swampworks.com>

Please hurry... our club meeting is Tuesday night and he wants me to bring the recipe to him then.

Thanks much,
Swampy

b52 is an all grain recipe. Much of the grain is 6row and there are no 6 row extracts that I know of.

swampy,
You can do a search on this. I posted an extract pB52 a couple of years ago that turned out really good. I used DME wheat extract as well as steeping crystal malt (whatever the all grain recipe called for) and a healthy amount of malto-dextrin powder to give it nice body. It is not exactly the same as B52, but it is a good beer for a beginner to start with.

Swampy,

Sorry to say but there is no extract recipe for B52.

B52 is and always has been an all-grain brew.

You can find the original recipe here: Skotrats B52 Honey Wheat (All Grain) 5 US Gallons

You can find a Promash file for it here: Skotrats B52 Honey Wheat (All Grain) 5.5 US Gallons

I prefer using clover honey that is added at the beginning of the boil.

I also prefer WhitBread Ale yeast (Dry or Liquid)

These are yeasts that I have also used with great success in B52:

Wyeast London ale
Wyeast 2035
Wyeast Chico
Wyeast 3333
Wyeast Whitbread

EasYeast London
EasYeast Whitbread
EasYeast Chico
EasYeast Scottish Ale

C'ya!

There are some really good extract honey wheat recipes in the archives that have the same OG as B52 and have the same hop schedule as B52 as well as the same amount of crystal malt as B52. None of these recipes are B52, but you can find them by searching "B52 extract".

Substitute 6 pounds of wheat extract for the 6 row and wheat malt. Be sure to call it something different than "B-52" or all hell will break loose. How about "B-52X?"

Actaully...

I would look at it more in percentages...

B52 is:

50% 6Row
40% Wheat
5% Crystal 60L
5% CaraPils/Dextrin Malt

Then add 2 pounds of Clover honey per five gallons of B52 that you are making...

I imagine that should get you where you need to get to.

Upon further relflection this is a little closer:

2 pounds of honey
1.5 pounds of Liquid malt extract
4.5 Pounds of Liquid wheat malt extract
0.5 pounds of 60 L crystal
0.5 pounds of Dextrin malt

Now getting any 1.060 gravity beer to ferment down to 1.004 is quite a trick. I might be tempted to get rid of the LME in favor of a same amount of more honey.

Dan,

Your percentages look off...

Also... I would imagine getting any extract beer to ferment out to 1.004 would be difficult.

The all-grain has always fermented down to within .001 of the final listed.

The Honey really makes the beer ferment down to that FG.

I used 60/40 as the ratio of wheat to barley for the wheat extract. In other words, part of the barley is covered by the wheat malt extract.

Why not just use 100% Wheat extract???

What exctract brands would you use for that?

From what I've seen muntons is one of the more fermentable extracts, and even with muntons I think there is no way to hit that attenuation with only 2 lbs of honey with normal yeast and muntons. I think you definitely need to add more honey/sugar or add some amylase to get an extract brew get down to 1.004.

Personally /Fredrik I would not even mess around with the overall silliness of extract.

I would jsut go allgrain...

Better beer... Better control... Just better.

Just my opinion

I can talk from experience here. I have done several all grain batches of pB52(2-row) and a couple of the real B52 as well as B52ish extract batches. I have come very close to the 1.004 and also missed it by as much as .010.

Muntons DME (wheat 45%/55%) seems to be pretty darn fermentable and usually got me close, but with my extract batches I also added 0.5 lbs or so of malto-dextrin power which does not ferment. I suspect that had I skipped the malto-dextrin powder I would have come really close to 1.004.

I had more problems with getting my FG down with the all grain batches. Probably because I mash high and only do a single infusion (with one exception using the steps in the recipe).

Irek was the only supplier of 100% wheat extract that I am aware of and they stopped supplying the homebrew trade quite a few years ago when they found out what it would take to prevent their cans from bulging.

Yes Skot, if you have the equipment and time to do AG I agree it makes little sense to convert a receipe to extract with the risk of maybe not getting it right, but I would assume that guy wants to try something close to your beer and AG is no option.

I've been into partial mashes most of the time myself (until recently where I've decided to try to tune in the mash math and evaluate) and I believe you can do alot there too with speciality grains. I think the control is kind of make you make to. IMO I have read many "receipe conversions" and most of the time, only OG and colour is accounted for, fermentability is typically ignored.

I do not speak from experience of the B-52 receipe, but the math just got to match in my head.

I just have hard to believe that the muntons wheat DME is alot more than 65% RDF / 80% AA fermentable. This means if you replace the wheat and 6-row "extract" with DME in Skot's original receipe, and also replace the carapils extract with typical maltodextrin powder, which is maybe 10% fermentable, assuming there is 20% water in the honey, and it beeing 95% fermentable, then I think you would hit 1.010 at best! for a highly attenuating strain.

Taking out the maltodextrin complete from the receipe may buy you at most 2 points, not more.

If you remove the maltodextrin AND assume that the DME is 74% RDFW / 90% AA fermentable, then you would probably hit 1.004 for a *highly attenuating* strain. However that kind of fermentability in muntons extract I do not believe in. In fact it would contradict muntons own specifications.

Also the whitbread strain in Skots original receipe is a medium attenuator, not a high one, making it even harder to get that low.

I think you can hit 1.004 with and extract-brew, but you most probably have to adjust the receipe and use more honey, or maybe some sugar.

"AA fermentable" means nothing in a relatively high OG beer with a large percentage of the fermentables coming from simple sugars.

What is the point? 1.008 ...1.004 it just does not matter. I can't taste a beer and know that it finished at 1.008 instead of 1.004.

United Canadian light syrup is 85% attenuative, but their wheat blend is only about 70% IIRC.

I have never seen carapils extract.

It is a good idea to dump the carapils for the extract recipe, but I agree that it would not help the final attenuation much.


Substituting sugar for the barley malt extract would get you closer, but some have strong feelings about using sugar.

Malto dextrin really has no place in a recipe like this.

Doug,

of course it matters...

The difference between 1.008 and 1.004 is just around .5% more alcohol.

This not only ups the bang but it also makes the beer a bit more dry...

You may not be able to taste it but it may be the difference of you wanting or not wanting another one...

Doug, "AA fermentable" refers to some standard worts as you know so I agre it's true that this does not translate into arbitrary worts, but I was certainly accounting for this. You can actually transform the AA numbers into valid attenuations, if you know how much simple sugars you add, and what fermentabilities your extract has. Thus, interpreting the "AA values" properly, you can indeed estimate how these compare at off scale OG's or when you add sugar. I have done this many times and it works.

Am I getting agressive and crusty in my years???? Why the hell can't a good recipe be left alone????
B52 is an all grain recipe, formulated by an all grain brewer for his own and other all grain brewers use.
To even suggest an alternative to the original means you are no longer interested in brewing B52 but an alternative. That's like accepting a Ford instead of a Chevy (2 line fishing here boys)
OK this years self righteous troll post is out of the way....now on to brewing

Swampy was just not careful enough in his original post to avoid the wrath of the B-52. Swampy had made the real B-52 and his friend loves it. Friend would like to come as close as he can with an extract brew and he will sign a pledge never to refer to it as B-52.

Hey Steve!

Here is an extract recipe for the B-52 I picked up from someplace. (not sure where)

5.5 lbs Wheat DME
2 lbs Honey
0.75 lbs Crystal 60
3 ozs Malto-Dextrin powder

60 minute boil

40 min. Hallertauer 0.75 ozs
20 min. Tettnanger 0.75 ozs
10 min Hallertauer 0.50 ozs

Wyeast 1056 or equiv.

Add the honey and the malto-dextrin powder a few minutes before flameout.

OG 1.067

I brewed this one and took it to one of the past HB club meetings we had and it was a hit there. The DME ferments out a bit more than the liquid does in my opinion.

If your buddies name starts with a D then this one will be a good one for him to start with. It's easy and tastes real clean.
Each Day brings a new beginning....Thank God for beer!

Gimp,
This was covered and covered and covered earlier in this thread. It is an extract Honey Wheat that is strikingly similar to B52 as far as hop schedule, OG, and specialty malts. In fact that does look like the recipe I post some years back.

I am calling it Extract pB52. So please stop referring to my grand recipe as B52.

How does a high octane honey wheat beer get named after a long range intercontinental nuclear bomber? I think you are all wrong, B-52 is an airplane, not a beer.

If it is such a great bomber, why havn't they made one in 43 years?

30 years out of production they have no rights to the title.

Just to beat a dead horse, and to test my memory, I recall the recipe name had nothing to do with anything. It was just the 52nd batch or something like that...

Someone doesn't appear to like the gimpster...

The highest wheat/malt ratio of extract that I've seen is 60/40.

I believe that it was not a 52nd batch. It was so named because it hits you like a B-52.

No wonder fluffy didn't come home. Someone put her up for adoption....
