This authentic German-style wheat beer is light colored and fruity with clove-like spicy notes. If you ferment at a warmer temperature, more banana flavor will occur. If you ferment at a lower temperature, more clove flavor will occur. You can balance the flavor if you ferment between 70-74 F degrees.

Brewed with this recipe a couple of times. Each time has turned out great.
Followed instructions but brewed two 2.5 gallon batches. Both excellent and easy to do. I did a keg it, family and friends love it. Good starter brew.
I brewed this in early December, and it was my first attempt at an all grain. It turned out kind of nasty, probably due to my own lousy technique. I'm glad I didn't dump it out though, because the funky astringiency that I had is mellowed out completely... And this is one tasty beer!
Great beer that I was able to drink about a week after the boil. Good hefeweizen flavor, I added 2 oz of zest from clementines for the last 5 minutes, which gives it a nice subtle flavor. Make sure you use a blowoff tube for primary as this was a VERY active fermentation at 74 degrees. Racked right to keg, shook it up, drinking two days later. Recommended as a quality beer in this style or as one to brew for an emergency party.
This was my 1st recipe and I couldn't be happier with the way it came out. I put it up against my favorite wheat bees in a taste test and it won hands down. It was a perfect introduction to home brewing. I followed the recipe except I added all of the hops during the 1st hop addition by mistake. Fermented at 71 degrees in the primary for 10 days and reached the estimated FG listed in the recipe. After 1 week in the bottle it was great but a little sweat for my taste. At weeks 2 & 3 perfect! I think I will be brewing this quite often.
