Don't know where those other sites are pulling their recommended carbonation from though. Quick search of BJCP guidelines doesn't reveal this info to me. Jamil's recipe in Brewing Classic Styles says 2.5 to 3.0 volumes.
Well - I had to bottle mine yesterday and wow - it tasted wonderful. Who knows what I'll end up with. I started with 2.5 and then read much higher so thought I was wrong - added more corn sugar to the boil and then read LESS!
So I cooled the very sugary carbing fluid and only used 3/4s of it!! LOL Very scientific!!
Beer Smith has American Wheat at low numbers and German Weissbier at very high numbers!! (if memory serves me correctly). Tasty Brew has 3.8 to 4.6 vols!
Of course AHS just has your default 5oz of Corn Sugar.
This is a Bavarian Hafeweizen so I'm screwed !
