Aug 31 '17 at 6:31 comment added barking.pete As a guide you can use 11g for 24L of brew. Most home brewing yeasts come in 11g packets. That is approximately one table spoon full of yeast.Putting a bit more yeast into the brew (even twice as much) would not harm it but putting too little may slow the fermentation.
Aug 31 '17 at 6:28 comment added chthon Start with 0,5 g per liter of wort. This would come down to 1 10 gram sachet of yeast for 20 l of beer. Since it is a light wheat beer, this would be fine to start with. If your batch is 25 l, keep it at one sachet. If you go higher in volume, I would recommend 2 sachets. Start with that for a first brew. Then search around on the net for brewing calculators or software, and read books and documentation about brewing.
Aug 30 '17 at 15:31 comment added Rajarshee Majumdar So I understood about the yeast type but at what quantity should I use....
Aug 30 '17 at 13:33 comment added barking.pete From memory I used either safale04 or 05(drier finish). I have also used Danstar "Nottingham". I tend to use safale04 for most beers. I have friends who use a lager yeast to ferment wheat beer - they say it gives a "crisp finish". Maybe....
Aug 30 '17 at 13:26 comment added Rajarshee Majumdar Thanks a lot. If u could suggest what kind a yeast you have used and in what quantity. With that the temperature maintained during fermentation.
Aug 30 '17 at 12:42 comment added barking.pete I have made unhopped wheat beer using coriander and orange peel and I kept it in bottles for 6 months or so. It might have kept longer but we drank it! :0) IMHO, alcoholic yeast fermentations with dissolved CO2 are relatively stable in sealed, air-tight bottles.
Aug 30 '17 at 8:33 comment added Rajarshee Majumdar For how long then we can preserve it without using hop....
Aug 30 '17 at 6:32 comment added chthon Normally you would use orange peel and coriander in addition to hop. Without hop your beer will probably not keep very long. However, if you do not want hop bitter I suggest you add hops only to get an IBU of 20.
Aug 30 '17 at 4:38 comment added Rajarshee Majumdar Thanks for your suggestions. So if I have got it right that instead of using hop pellet I can use 14 gm of orange peel with 7 gm coriander seed.
