Impression: I really enjoy Three Floyd's Gumball and decided to concoct / try this recipe. I looked around a lot and put a few different recipes and came up with this which is pretty darn close to the original. I did a side by side taste with a bunch of friends and the difference was negligible. I've also had one other person from another forum brew this recipe and they were very satisfied with how close it is to the original.
I have tried this recipe with both white and red wheat and both turned out nicely. I would have to do a trio of taste to see which one is the closest to the original. I know that Three Floyde's claims to use red wheat and I can easily say that either will create a nice brew that is close to the original.
Happy brewing and let me know how it turns out if you give this one a try.
