I'm currently fermenting a Berliner Weisse and was both surprised and pleased at the recipe when I read it required NO BOILING at all! It was so easy simply mashing and then draining directly into the fermenter. The wort was then allowed to cool down on it's own until the temp was OK for the yeast to be pitched.
For anyone interested, the recipe is "Word to Your Mother" Berliner Weisse, by Michael Dawson.
My question is this: Are there any more types of beer that allows one to skip the boil entirely?
I AM aware of what boiling does to wort and why skipping the boil was OK for this particular recipe.
