By Demand: Lemongrass Ginger Wheat Recipe

A commenter asked me for this recipe, both here and on Brewer’s Friend:  My lemongrass ginger wheat recipe recipe (so far) reflecting my experiments to help perfect it:

The first recipe I got the right amount of lemongrass.  When making it, be sure you get good quality lemongrass.  I get mine dried from the Savory Spice Shop rather than the Brew Hut.  Fresh ginger – grated, added at flameout to get a bit of ginger bite.  Add earlier for flavor and no bite.  This version is actually my next prototype brew, a three-gallon batch designed to test for the final proportions.  I intend to brew this next weekend and will report as it becomes finished.

Cheers and thanks for the question!

  1. Found your site through Brewer’s Friend. Love it. I may try this recipe. I’ve got the grain bill, just need to get the lemongrass and ginger. Cheers!

    • It’s my next brew. I’m currently making micro-adjustments to the recipe, mostly dialing back the spices because I can add them back using tinctures or teas later. Looks like this weekend is the brew day and since it’s a “pre-final”, I’ll only do three gallons.
