Subject: Getting that clove-like flavor from cloves
Date: 1992-07-07 19:38:34 GMT

I enjoy the strong "clove like" flavor of certain weiss beers yet I haven't
been happy with the results of kit weiss beers using the Wyeast wheat strain.
In this forum I have read that S. delbrueckii is what contributes the clove
characteristic and that the Wyeast strain (3056) is 50/50 with something else.

Since I know of no access to pure S. delbrueckii and am not too interested
in plating it out, has anyone out there tried adding cloves to either the
primary or secondary?
