maybe check out northernbrewer, austin home brew supply shop and midwest supplies - they all set extract kits and I think publish their recipes.

I think my next brew will also be a dark wheat.

Hey!
My favorite beer: dunkles Hefeweizen (dark wheat).

Here is a recipe which I got in this forum (by Arkador). I am close to bottling. Just some warnings: USE the BLOWOFF hose. I didn't and I can tell you, it was a big explosion and quite a mess. The yeast goes nuts, hehe. Also you should make a starter.
I have it since 2 weeks in the primary and it is still bubbling but I will not rack it in a secondary as cloudiness is desired in a Hefeweizen. My whole place smells like , I love it!
. enjoy and let me know how it turns out for you, I will let you know how mine is.

This is basically Jamil's:

6.6# Wheat LME (or 6# Wheat DME)
6 ounces crystal 40
6 ounces crystal 120
2 ounces Carafa Special II
Wyeast 3068

Jamil's original recipe calls for Munich malt. You can replace a couple pounds of the extract with a mini mash of 3# of Munich. If you can find Munich extract than sub 2 pounds for 2 pounds.

0.5 lbs. Chocolate Wheat

I brewed this one recently. I kegged it but it was gone rather quickly. One of my better beers yet.

This is pretty much exactly the recipe that MoreBeer sells as their Dunkel kit too. I just brewed mine and put it into the fermenterator yesterday.
