Ya know, I've seen so many people say that and it's really reassuring since hefe's are my top favorite beer. Primarily Franziskaner - it's my absolute favorite beer ever, but NOT in the small green 12oz bottles! For some reason it just does *not* taste the same in the smaller bottles, maybe cause of the lighter glass... I dunno. So I always buy cases of the brown 500ml bottles. I also love Schneider Weisse (especially Edel-Weisse), their Aventinus, Hacker-Pschorr, Weihenstephan, Paulaner... ok... you get the point LOL.
Anyhow, it definitely makes me feel more like in time I can definitely make my own "Über-Weizen"
So I'm getting they're easy to make, but is it also relatively easy to make one that competes with the big/famous german brands like earlier mentioned?
