I like a 70/30 wheat to pale myself, just to get a good distiction from all the pure barley beers i make. And got to use Weinstehener or Bavarian yeast.

I do some wheats because it's like 12 bucks for a 50 pound sack here in Kansas.
I like the taste and I don't mind doing a protein rest.By the way,I use it raw,not malted.Does that make me weird?I get efficiencies in the low 80's.

(Edit) I use barley too.I only use 5 pounds or so of wheat in a 20 pound grain bill.

I love wheat beers. I like witbiers, hefes, and American wheats. My house beer is an American wheat. If I had to choose a beer at dive bar it would be blue moon.

Actually you are doing a very early style German hefe, they used unmalted wheat so maybe wierd but, its the best way to go man.
