Default Thoughts on this Weizen:

This will be an extract w/steep, it is kind of a variation of the last hefeweizen i did...

1lb weyermann pale wheat
8oz munich 40
6lbs wheat LME (65% wheat-35%barley)
Wyeast 3068
As for hops: Are there any other acceptable hop substitutes excluding Tettnang and Hallertau anyone would suggest using as a substitute? Midwest is out of both until December and alot of the 'acceptable' substitutes arent of noble variety.

Any critique, suggestions, comments are welcomed!

It's not a bad recipe.

Have any Spalt hops? Probably more difficult to find.

the only changes from the recipe i did before was the addition of the Munich, and obviously using a different hop

there are spalt hops available in abundance, i have never used them but i can give it a shot.

i really need to move to all grain....this extract business is too expensive

Saaz is the first variety that jumps to mind, although I have no idea what the availability is on them.

The Hallertau area in Germany is between Ingolstadt and Munich.

The Spalt are is west of Ingolstadt and as far south as Treuchtlingen. Spalt's are used in Hefe weizens also. We still have friends that live in Treuchtlingen.

The Tettnanger area is way south near Lindau just on the northeast edge of Lake Constance (Bodensee). There's also a couple nice casino's in Lindau.

Saaz are usually used in Pilsners.

I know what you mean. I've made about 9 batches of HW this year.

I still have over 2 lbs of Hallertau hops left from this summer... They are 6%, but I only use 3% AA per batch. These should last me for 64 more batches after I finish off the other lb.
