Ok, I brewed a wheat beer with a single step mash at 156 F for 75 minutes, then 10 minutes at 168 F mashout, with the following:

10 lb. Wheat malt
1 lb. American crystal 10L
1 lb. Dextrine malt (Cara-Pils)
12 lb. British pale

My OG was 1.052, with an explosive fermentation using WLP300, but I seem to stuck at 1.022, does this seem too high to anyone????

Mike

Oh, forgot to mention....this was a 10 gal batch, and I used a 1/2 gallon starter.

With that high of a mash temparature you could be down to just unfermentable sugars left,but that does sound high.That yeast is not a high attenuater,72-76%,and that style doesn't need to be dry or aged.I wouldn't be worried about it unless bottling,if so then just back off on priming sugar a bit-2/3 cup per 5 gal.

That is high for a weizen. I'd shoot for about 1.010-1.012 FG. Personally, I would have left out the crystal and the cara-pils. Leaving those out, and replacing with wheat malt would have given you a lower FG and a more traditional weizen. I have found WLP300 to be a good attenuator.
