Brew day for Doppelweizenbock II

swamp cooler holding this batch at 68 degrees.

 At about 68% wheat, efficiency was an issue with this batch.  Although the brew bag I have works wonderfully on barley malt, the protein partials of the wheat seemed to block quite a bit of the water during the run off.  Even with a single sparge the efficiency was only 57%.  However, a low efficiency was expected, so hitting the OG was not a problem.  Next time I brew with a large amount of wheat I'm going to try a new bag made out of material with a slightly larger weave.
