This is the traditional German wheat beer. The yeast will produce clovey-spicy flavors. This beer has few bittering hops. Hefeweizens will have suspended yeasts which make the beer cloudy and produce bread-like "full bodied" flavors.


6.6 lbs. Wheat Malt Extract

1/2 lb. Pale Grain - 2 row (cracked)

1 1/2 oz. Hallertauer (boil)

1/2 oz. Hallertauer Hersbrucker (finish)

4 oz. Crown Caps (approx. 55 caps)

5 oz. Priming Sugar (approx. 3/4 cup)
