Default hefeweizen brew

How long is the recommend fermentation process for Bavarian Hefeweizen? Should it go through secondary fermentation? Once bottled should it be stored at room temp or under refrigeration? I have heard hefeweizen are best consumed young? Thanks for any advice I am a newbie to home brewing.

Howdy, Hog!

In my opinion, to make the best Hefeweizen, ferment it at a relatively cool (<66 degrees F) but steady temperature with a good liquid yeast culture for about two weeks, then bottle and enjoy as soon as it is carbonated. Take a hydrometer reading prior to bottling to ensure proper attenuation.

hefe is my favorite beer. i brew it, ferment it for 11 days, keg, carb, and drink. doesn't really need 11 days, but that's what i started doing years ago, and it works
