Winter Steam Wheat Beer

Doesn't fit into any category I've ever heard of, but I think it tastes a little like draft Anchor Steam.

Activate the yeast so that it is ready to go 1 day before brewing. Add yeast to starter solution so that starter is ready to go on brewing day. Heat 2 gallons water to 134 degrees and add 1 tsp gypsum. Combine with crushed grains. Hold at 120-123 degrees for at least 30 minutes. Add another 1 gallon water at 198 degrees. Hold between 150-155 degrees for at least 60 minutes. Sparge with remaining water at 170-180 degrees. Boil for 60 minutes. Add Cascade hops at beginning of boil. Add Saaz for final 10 minutes. Chill, combine in carboy with yeast starter. After fermentation has slowed (no more than 1 week), rack to secondary. To prime, stir sugar or extract into 1 1/2 cups of boiling wort, and combine with the rest of the wort before bottling.
