Default Yet another Carolina Brewer?

My first post here. I have been reading "How to Brew", and just ordered a Carboy, Carboy brush, and a Air Lock.

Why did I start? 10 year ago a trip to Germany and I fell in love with wheat beer.

I am back over in Germany now, and decided if I can't bring it home, I will learn to make it.

JMSelzer on BBQ Brethren sent me your way.

I hope you'll report back after the taste comparison. I'd really like to see what you think.

Will do. Been doing that a lot recently. Split the wort into 2 kettles use diff hops same yeast. Or split to two carboys same hops diff yeast. Trying to isolate the flavors of each particular item in the things I use frequently. It is often interesting.

Checking in with results. Underestimated brewhouse efficiency a bit and made some strong Weiss and am wheat. Still amazing the differences in the two beers. Weiss is very banana clove. The am wheat is fairly plain. It is surprising how much flavor the yeast adds. Thinking about dry hopping some lemongrass in the am wheat keg now that I have compared the two. I do a lemongrass wheat that is nice. Adds a nice aroma. Fresh cut grass and citrus.

Where in NC are you? I'm in Asheville and am a very experienced homebrewer if you ever want to meet up and brew together.
