Best wheat beer ever is:
boil 1 oz Hallertau for 50 minutes in 3-6 gallons of water (depending on whether or not you can full boil)
Add 6 pounds wheat DME and boil for 10 minutes
Add yeast (my fave is WYeast 3068 but 300 will work) and let it ferment for 7-10 days or until krausen has fallen.
If you keg, it'll be ready in 1 week. If you bottle, 3 weeks.
