Default stuck fermentation

Just racked an Irish Red into my secondary. Had been in the primary for 8 days. By day 3 in the primary it had stopped fermenting. Talked to the guys at the local homebrew shop and they told me to re-pitch. Did so and after day two in the secondary fermentaion has all but stopped...

Anyone know a good recipe for a light hefe?

After 3 days fermenting, the beer would probably be done! The only way to know for sure is to check the s.g. I'd bet it's done!

As far as a hefe, check in the recipe database. I would guess that there are a number of good recipes in there. I think I'm one of the only people around here that doesn't care for hefes.

The internet knows a receipe for a good hefe. check out this website's resource for receipes. People don't generally post a receipe unless they really like it.
