I'll be brewing this one tomorrow. I am using American red wheat instead since my LHBS was all out of the regular kind. I'll let you know how it turns out! Looks delicious.

They sold the wheat only in 1lb increments... will it be a big deal to use the extra half pound?

Only 1 way to tell.... I don't think it will make a ton of difference. Will probably change the color.

I made this for a babyshower, so the husbands would feel welcome to attend. The guys spent most of the time in the garage, and the wives drove home from the party. Everyone really enjoyed this.

I also entrered it into my homebrew club's monthly competition, and placed 1st for June 2009!

Oh man this is a GREAT brew! This is the best homebrew I have done so far, without a doubt. Granted, I love the style.

I just had my first bottle today...amazing. Great flavor profile, with big hints of banana and subtle clove (I went with WLP 300 yeast), very smooth finish and quite a kick. (My batch came out to 6.2% ABV.) The mini mash gives a much deeper flavor than other 100% extract recipes I've done.

Plus... my wife LOVES it!

Give this a try, you will not be disappointed...

I used WLP300 Hefeweizen yeast, it's the same thing.

Just brewed this again tonight. Used 1 lb. of American red wheat and 1 lb of Belgian pilsen. The OG is 1.068 so it'll have a bigger abv but that's juuuuusssttt fine by me =)

My mother-in-law, who NEVER drinks beer, absolutely loved this, and that's all I'm sayin'.... Brew this beer.

Looks and sounds like a great brew, but how is it a dunkelweizen? Your SRM puts you in the hefeweizen range, dunkelweizen starts at 14 SRM. Not trying to knock it, just curious at how you arrived at decision this is a dunkelweizen.

it was tasted by a National BJCP judge, who advised me of the proper catagory. This scored 37 points on the BJCP scale in the Dunkelwizen catagory. Color is only worth 1 point. I was brewing it to be a Hefeweizen, but was advised to enter it as a dunkel.

Sorry i missed your post earlier, any LHBS worth a danm has dry Wheat Ale Yeast (I used dry to save a buck on this one), or as Williamston said, WhiteLabs or Wyeast both have a Heffewizen yeast.
