go to the northern brewer website, they have a kit for a berliner weiss, i made the ag version but i know they have an extract version as well.

If you look under kit inventory it shows the actual recipe. Damn tasty brew!!!

+1 for going 100% wheat DME, which, as mentioned previously, is really more like 60/40 wheat/pils. I don't think you should need steeping grains. Not that you should negate them just because I said so, but the character of that style (and really any German wheat) comes almost completely from yeast (and in this case bacteria). Also, for increased head retention, you could skip kettle finings (Irish Moss, Whirlfloc, etc.) since cloudiness isn't a real concern with this style.
