Default Schwarz Weizen?

I've done a regular hefeweizen several times and my dunkelweizen turned out great. Has anyone ever considered doing a black (or at least dark brown) hefeweizen? My thoughts are to take my hefeweizen recipe and cross it with a schwarzbier, adding just a touch of Munich malt in place of some of the pilsner and enough Carafa Special II to bring the color up without much roasted character. If the Germans can do an Amber Hefeweizen and even a Smoked Hefeweizen, why not a black one? I'll do this after my next go round with my hefeweizen and repitch the yeast.

Carafa Special III is darker, why not use it, although I don't think it is going to add much character either way.

This makes me imagine an over ripe banana.

I'm going to have the opportunity to try it again this Thursday and might be able to ask about the grain bill.

i've made quite a few dunkelweizens with carafa II. i usually only use a few ounces in addition to some chocolate malt, but they have all come out WONDERFUL.

you can't really lose with a dark hefeweizen, or any good weizen for that matter

most of mine have a munich base with no pilsner, but i recently kegged a "light/dark" one that used mostly pilsner malt and carafa for color....really, really good.

that's it...i'm leaving work now. i'm going to take that keg home before my friends drink it all

Carafa Special II is what I've got and can get without ordering, so that's it. I might bump it to a full 0.75 lb just to make it a touch darker. I'll see.

olllllo, I wish I knew that a week or so ago when I was in Phoenix for a day for work. At least I'm not shooting completely in the dark here.

Well, I just brewed a batch of Dunkelweiss yesterday....and while I was pre-dissolving the malt extract in my wife's LeCreuset it burned...er, uh, I mean carmelized a little. The wort was very, very dark and rich when finished. So perhaps I'll have something more along the lines of Schwarzweiss?

While brewing I drank a couple Moosbacher Schwarz Weiss's - which were fairly crisp and light on the palate in spite of the darkness of the bew.
