Default Easy Hefe Recipe

I am looking for a good Hefe recipe for my 2nd batch. I need something that is all extract or extract with steeping.

Also, will I need a starter since I will be (more than likely) using a liquid yeast? And will by 6.8 gallon carboy be large enough to prevent blow off in the first stages of fermentation, or do I need to get a blow off hose?

You're carboy will be fine as long as you don't top off too much.

Easy Hefe recipe

Take 4 - 1 gal jugs and place in a freezer for 4-5 hours prior to brewing.
Warm 1.5 gals of water.
Add 1 lb DME. Dissolve.
At boil add 1-1.5 oz hops (3.4-3.8%AA).
Boil 45 mins. Remove from heat.
Add and dissolve 5 lbs DME.
Let sit for 15 mins.
Pour into primary and sparge hops.
Top off to 5.25 gals.
Take temp and hydrometer readings.
Add starter.

You know the rest...

What type of DME? Also what type of yeast? Can I get by without a starter, or do I need one?

Thanks

Tim

Wheat DME. Hefewiezen yeast. White Labs 300, 351 or 380. Wyeast 3056 or 3068. A starter would be good, not absolutely necessary, but better.

As soon as the original post was there I knew you were all over it.

I think when we both hear "Hefeweizen" we assume hefeweizen yeast, since it isn't one without it. And the wheat has to be there for the same reason.

Only when I'm logged on and can get away from more important matters like W-O-R-K!

You're right, when I hear "Hefe Weizen" there is only one!!

One of my PEEVES -- it's a Hefe Weizen, not American Weizen! That's an American Wheat...there has to be a reason why the Germans don't brew an "Amerikanisches Wheat"???

Nach eine weiss, Bitte! Vielen dank!

Here is a simple extract with specialty grains Hefe recipe from my LHBS. I love this more and more every time I make it. It is a real fan favorite around here.

I only boil 1.5 gals. They are for topping off and aerating...they are a bit frozen when I take them out of the freezer so the temps go down into the 60s and I can pitch my yeast right after taking my readings.
