Default Any suggestions for a good honey wheat?

I'm going to brew this weekend and my wife would like a honey wheat. Any suggestions or past experiences with a great honey wheat kit??
This will be my second brew and we both are looking forward to it.

Default cut from More Beer- Nice!

Price: $24.15 (Product is part of our Free shipping Program, see details)

Weight: 12.00LBS

Availability: Usually ships within 24 to 48 hours

Perishableue to this product being perishable we can only accept returns in certain circumstances.
Add 1 Of Safale S-04(11.5g) - 1.60
Add 1 Of White Labs - English Ale - 5.75
Order Qty:
(Makes 5 gallons) We would not have put 3lbs of honey with 4.5 lbs of malt extract in a pale ale, but Jim had no fear and did just that. The result - a really nice mix of malt and honey flavors. There is enough honey to make it through into the flavor. Just a little Cascade hops in the beginning and finish keep the flavor emphasis on the honey. He suggests WLP002 because it is less attenuative and leaves more malt behind.

Check my sig for a recipe....it won a BoS last summer. One of the best I've done.

I just re-brewed it last week.

I can convert it to extract for yoo if it doesn't already say how to in the notes....

Dude,

Not to Hijack but I saw this thread. The beer sounds fantastic. I have put some local bee farm honey in a few of my beers and everyone loves them. Could I get you to convert your recipe to extract??

Thanks in Advance

Okay guys...sub in 2.5 lbs. Wheat DME, 1 lb. light DME, and steep the honey malt for 30 minutes. Everything else the same.

Dude, does the WLP380 give any clove-like flavors or is it more neutral?

You mean the 320?

Imagine a mix of 001 and 300. Not as clovey/banana as a german hefe but still there slightly. Drink a widmer and you'll know what mine tastes like.

It is about perfect for me because I'm not huge into the German hefes.
