That will be a great brew. I've brewed a similar beer and it was fantastic.

Not a dark beer, but if you're open minded, a Hefeweizen may be a nice beer to try. Northern brewer has a good one. I did 5 gal extract. 10 days primary then bottled. It was good after 1 week in bottles and great at 2 plus weeks. Just a thought.

I am open minded. I remember liking hefe back in my early 20s. Then again I also remember liking natty light. Still, that is enough votes to try a hefeweizen that I think I will give it a go. I anticipate brewing a good 3 - 4 batches of beer before any of my mead is ready to consume.

I'm noob who loves hefe from the store.

My first ever hb batch was a brewers best witbier kit. I thought it was as good or better than anything from the store.

4 days in primary
2 1/2 weeks in secondary
2 weeks in bottles

Highly recommended

5 min left in boil add 1 oz fuggles hops

Pitch either safale s-04 yeast or wyeast American ale 1056. Either preference.

This beer has exploded on me every time I have made it so watch carefully!

Any questions just ask me!!
How bitter is that going to be? I have never used Magnums.

I like dark beer, but I also don't like very bitter beer. One of the best dark, chewy beers I have tried is Irish Death, if you know that one... but I think it is available in the Northwest only.

I have a hefeweizen (http://www.whitelabs.com/beer/strains_wlp300.html) at 7 days right now. I had assumed that more time on the yeast (within reason) was the way to go... why is hefeweizen different?

This batch fermented pretty vigorously for the first couple of days, and there is still a bubble from the airlock once in a while a week in.

I'm not sure but I think Hefeweizen is supposed to be "yeasty", and bottling before the yeast cake gets very compacted is the way to achieve that.

The beer isn't that bitter. IMO. It's a great stout!! U could always substitute, but I love it! It has a great flavor!!

Was looking forward to sharing a liter of this stout with my pops and brother after our planned grand canyon backpacking trip this winter break. Come to learn... I am the only one who likes a stout. Next up is an Amber for them. Hope it gets done in time. Any quick Amber recipes?
