Default Schöfferhofer Hefeweizen Clone or Purchase

So every time I go to Germany I fall in love with this beer all over again. I live and Maine but travel all over the world for work and I can't find this beer anywhere but in Europe. Has anyone seen it in the USA? If yes, where can i buy it?

Failing that, does anyone know enough about it to have a clone recipe around?

I really am not a fan of cloning and won't do it unless I just can't buy it anywhere!

Thank for any help you can give!

I think what you need to do the next time you go to Frankfurt is kidnap the brewmaster on this one. That's the only way your going to get a clone of this. The U.S. distribution of this looks to be extremely limited. If you could work a deal with the brewery you could be the east coast distributor of this hefe. I don't have any clue how to make this one and no one else does here either. This sounds like a good candidate for Marc Martin, the Beer Replicator at Brew Your Own to attempt. But I'm afraid Marc may have trouble getting information from the German brewery also. I did locate one recipe that you may use as a starting point if you were to attempt a clone. If you're committed to try this (and why not?), I would also suggest a second batch using Wyeast 3333. If it comes close, let us know.

The only other point I'd have is ferment this puppy at 62 degrees F. That will actually suit this beer the best. The pale malt could be a pilsen malt also. Try different minor recipe variations until you nail it.

No problem. Let us know how this shakes out. What yeast did you end up using? I'll throw you a curve ball, if you want to experiment to find the right taste, consider Wyeast 1007 German Ale yeast as another alternative. I don't think you can go wrong with a weizen for the hot summer. Don't be shy about making this a 5 gallon batch. July is coming!

So Buzzer that just got bottled and it's a great beer. Needs something for head retention and I think i'll try the yeast you recommended as this one generated to much banana flavor.....
