Schneider Brooklyner Hopfen-Weisse

Style: Hefe Weizen
Privatbrauerei G. Schneider & Sohn, Kelheim, Germany

Schneider & Brooklyner Hopfen-Weisse is a collaboration between brewmasters Hans-Peter Drexler of the Schneider Weissbier Brewery and Garrett Oliver of The Brooklyn Brewery. Now, once again, together they bring you a small batch of their joint creation: a pale weissbock robustly dry-hopped with the Hallertauer Saphir variety grown in the fields near the Schneider brewery. Hoppy, zesty and supremely refreshing, Schneider & Brooklyner Hopfen-Weisse is a delicious blend of Bavarian craftsmanship and American ingenuity.


Bittering Hops: two additions, Hallertauer Tradition
Late hopping - Aroma: Hallertauer Saphir
Dry hopping: three pounds per barrel Hallertauer Saphir for one week. (Note: dry-hopping is extremely unusual/new in Germany; the Bavarian Reinheitsgebot does not mention it. It may be the first German beer/ale dry-hopped!)


Original Gravity: 19.3
Apparent Extract: 3.9
Malt: 50% Pale Wheat Malt, 50% Pale Two-row Barley malt

Five-step infusion mash

Open fermentation at 68 F/20 C for one week, then transferred to cylindro-conical tank containing dry hops. Fermentation is completed in this tank and the beer rests on dry hops for one week total.

Hops are dropped/removed and the beer is dosed with normal Schneider speise (original Schneider yeast and malt sugar) and bottled. Transfer to cold storage at the end of bottle re-fermentation.
