Product details

Exotic in its unusual ingredients and tropical in flavor, Exotic Tropic Wheatwine is sure to transport even the most discerning drinkers to a beer lover's paradise. A simple two-malt grain bill and a single hop variety create the perfect base for this recipe's headliner -- a unique yeast strain that provides this beer with ample tropical flavors of pineapple, mango, and a slight tartness.

Thanks to the simple grain bill, Exotic Tropic Wheatwine pours with a dazzling deep-golden hue and forms a thick, stable, dense foam cap reminiscent of airy, care-free clouds sailing over white sand beaches. Fully hopped with Amarillo®, this beer is only moderately bitter, but bursts with orange citrus flavors and aromas to perfectly complement the tropical yeast-derived esters. Coming in at over 10% ABV, this pleasurable sipper will have you daydreaming of palm trees and paradise in no time flat.

Brewing Notes

  • Style: Wheatwine
  • Fermentation Range: 75 - 80F
  • Original Gravity: 1.090
  • SRM: 7.5
  • IBUs: 45
  • ABV: 10.5%

Tasting Notes

  • Aroma: Prominent bready and wheaty aroma takes a back seat to scents of pineapple, orange, mango, and tropical fruit.
  • Appearance: Deep golden in color with a medium, dense white foam head.
  • Flavor: Fresh bread malt character supports the tropical hop and yeast flavors of pineapple, mango, and citrus. Moderate bitterness balances the slightly sweet malt base. Clean, light alcohol notes.
  • Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate creaminess and medium carbonation. Long, smooth finish.

Brad’s Notes:

“A little known style, wheatwine is a great blank slate to showcase specific ingredients. According to the BJCP style guidelines, wheatwine consists of 50% or more of wheat malt, and that any hop variety can be used. To that end, why not make something truly memorable? Starting with a simple grain bill, this recipe utilizes Amarillo® hops and a unique yeast strain to impart huge flavors and aromas of tropical fruit. The particular yeast strain in this recipe happens to be a diastaticus strain, so expect higher than normal attenuation rates likely in the 90% range or even higher. This will help to dry the beer out, but will not make it too thin and watery. The tradeoff of this particular yeast strain is that it is a poor flocculator and will take a long time to clear without filtering or fining. To accelerate clearing, utilize a cold storage lagering technique, or for more rapid clearing, filtration or fining can be helpful.”

Hugh unfermentables in extract version

Used kviek yeast so maybe I should have seen it coming but SG was 1090, FG was around 1049. So definitely need to use the recommended yeast bc the unfermentable sugars for normal strains of yeast are super high. Ended up putting in Brett to get a lower fg. Just kind of a bummer that there's no warning about the level of unfermentable sugars in the extract versions

Good flavor and depth

I chose to use the WLP644 yeast for this brew and dropped 2 as Northern called for. Note White Lab recommended 3 for this OG. Two worked fine. The beer has a slight hop bite at first drink. Second drink you pick up on the mango undertone, third drink if you have a discerning pallet you can pick up on the pineapple undertone, but it is very faint. The beer does finish nicely and does not leave any lingering hops bitter. My yeast was hot and heavy for about 3 days, used a blow off. It then went almost dormant, but continue to slow act as expected of that strain. I moved this to secondary after 1 week, left in secondary for 2 weeks, bottled and bottle aged with fizz drops for 4 weeks. It turned out well and all that have tried it liked it.

Xcellent outcome

This is a very easy brew but long payoff..,and completely worth it.
The brew was short but a good time...love to brew outside, drink my previous concoctions, and smoke a stogie or two..
Took about an hour...complete piece of cake...
Racking was easy since there’s a minimal amount of hop pellets...did it once...the final was really clear of sediment,
The final product is what counts, and I gotta tell you, it’s excellent! ABV hovering between 11-12 after three weeks of bottle conditioning, very full bodied, xtremely flavorful, and smooth as silk.
Would certainly make again, and would recommend to anyone!

Still fermenting

Super easy recipe to make! High gravity beer, so make sure you have a blowoff tube setup, preferably large diameter. My blowoff tube is the same diameter as the neck of the primary carboy, and the water bucket is 4 feet above the top of the primary. I had foam within 14 inches of the top of the blowoff tube. I added 2lbs of honey at the end of the boil, and champagne yeast to finish it off 10 days into fermentation. Should be a bomber summer sippin beer!
