Although I see they are a substitute for Hallertau.
yea not entirely sure on the hops either was just in the LHBS recipe so i went with it i had never used them either. It has cleaned up some over the last week but last tuesday when i was really getting this flavor was before the beer was carbonated...and as everyone can atest carbonating beer REALLY changes the flavor of it....i doubt it will last another 2 weeks so ill just RDWHAHB =) any other postings about some dunkelweizens and how their flavor profiles have turned out?
and yea i dont like my steeping temperature above 165 specifically to avoid that issue....this particular time was a mistake made with my thermometer and its alarm system...teaches me to walk away for 5 minutes
