Brew #44 & #45 - Wheaty Goodness 2 and Oh Vienna

You may recall that a couple of years back, I brewed a simple enough wheat beer and added plenty of hops in it. It was called wheaty goodness and after an intial phase of tasting infected, it turned out very lovely.

I brewed it again 2 weeks ago with some variations of course. I am hoping for the same sourness that I had the first time around. If I get it, that means that the first beer was never infected and was actually a result of the hops, or perhaps the temperature it was fermented at. This I kegged yesterday while brewing Oh Vienna.

For Oh Vienna I used my grain mill for the first time. It was more of a test as originally I was not going to use any pale malt other than Vienna and Munich but I crushed 904g while testing it and specifically testing a grain chute idea I had. I will do a post on that another time but it was pretty simple.

The one hiccup was I dropped my hydrometer and it smashed so I have no FG for wheaty goodness and no SG for Oh Vienna. I just have to assume I pretty much hit my targets.
