Just bottled yesterday and WOW. I used all the ingredients with the kit and added some honey, cardamom and maltodextrine. This may be the best beer I have ever brewed. Tastes fantastic, bottled with corn sugar, can't wait to try in 3 weeks or so.
With work I am lucky to be able to get trips to Germany. After going so many times I have learned what real Dunkelweisse and Hefeweizen are. Its what got me into brewing because here in the states you cant find a wheat beer like the ones made over in Germany. This recipe is very close to what is brewed over there and much better than what I can find in the stores here. If you like the wheats then try it, you wont be disappointed. I brewed the Exract Recipe and I will buy again.
This beer was my third beer brewed, still new to this I did the LEX recipe. This is my favorite so far and the first I see me brewing again soon. I kept it around 62-64 degrees during fermentation and followed the directions to the letter. Even my bud light buddies like this beer!!!
did the all-grain option. The process started out well by hitting the 1.052 OG, great cool-down, etc... as for the flavor, it has a very good flavor (not the banana flavors listed above; however, i did ferment at a controlled 70 deg temperature), great feel, nice head, and is a very pleasurable drink. i was very pleased with this recipe. The only change i\'d make next time is a a little more red wheat.
My first try at a dark wheat beer. kept fermentation between 68-70 deg. to keep the banana taste to a minimum. It turned out very good. Richer than triditional wheat beers with more complex flavors. I may never brew a light wheat beer again.
