Wax On Hefeweizen (5.3% abv) and Wax Off Hefeweizen (6% abv):
There is something to discover within everything we do, no matter how mundane. So what is there to discover in fermenting a beer with an open or closed vessel? An age old question that we are thankfully finally trying to answer. With help from our good friends at Lallemand Brewing, we brewed two batches of the same German-style Hefeweizen, one with closed fermentation (Wax On) at Sawdust City, and one with open fermentation (Wax Off) at Indie Alehouse. Is there a difference? Does one have more aroma or different flavours than the other? Which one is better? Try them both and you be the judge!
