I was thinking of reusing the cake of WLP380 I have from my hefe that is almost done.
What differences in flavor will be noticeable if I don't use any wheat at all and just use 2-row?
Should I add some crystal 20L?
Hallertau 3.2% AA
1.5oz 60 min
.5oz 15 min
What you are talking about is dampfbier. Some of the phenols in a typical weizen are derived from the wheat, so you may end up with less clove, but it will share many flavors with your first batch.

Well, i guess I can always try something new If anything I am going to wash 1/2 of the yeast and pitch it on to the rest. Way I can get at least 2 more 5 gallon batches from the yeast.
