I would say no its not, but you might be tasting young beer. There should be some evidence of a roast malt flavor. A hefe will not have that taste. I would give this beer time to age, many have really liked this beer. I doubt any would say this tastes like a hefe since its nothing like it at all.

Overall green beer can have weird funky tastes. You might be bottling a bit early based on what you are tasting.

going to brew this tomorrow. quick question:

for the 1 pound of specialty grains used in this recipe i know the standard is to steep the grains for 30 min in 150-155 degree water. how much water do i need to use to do this properly?

Use 2.35 gal. I couldn't recall this from memory. I looked in the recipe info. (see post 1)

This is more important for the boil, so the hops will bitter the beer correctly. Volume and concentration are important for hop utilization. This has little to no impact on the steeping since you are not doing any form of mashing. Very little of the fermentables are coming from the steep. Its contributing roast malt flavors.

Measure the water correctly as well as the hops and keep good track of the clock and this will be easy.

Just wanted to chime in and thank you for posting this recipe -- this was my fourth batch of beer, and my first not from a kit. I made the extract version, and both my girlfriend and I agree that it's the best yet. I'm already planning another batch, because the current one isn't going to last!

thanks again for sharing the recipe
