Default 4 Weeks in Primary for Hefeweizen?

Holidays took a toll on my $$$... finally ordered 48 12oz bottles from NB and getting them Wednesday which will be week # 4 in the primary.

Is 4 weeks fine? I'd assume so but haven't really seen much info on Hefe's and fermenting lol

It'll be fine.

I had mine in primary for 2 weeks, in hindsight I probably would have sat it for four.

4 weeks should produce no significant problems. At most you have likely given the beer a little extra conditioning time for the flocculated yeast to settle

But don't wait too much longer... Get that bottle conditioning rolling!

No worries on four weeks. My first brew was a hefe and I was taught to leave ales in the fermenter for four weeks. It was good! Enjoy it!
