After having successfully brewed hard cider last fall, and it being our first summer in the US after living in Europe where beer prices are humane at least; we have decided to brew our favorite summer beverage: Bavarian Hefe. We fell in love when cycling through Germany, and every evening after 90 km we'd pop into the Beer Garten to blissfully immerse in an exceedingly generous glass of the sunniest colored beverage I've ever had. Love. It. Everything about it.
So, after scanning all the recipes available online, we've opted for yours because of it's simplicity and short brewing time. Is there anything you would recommend before we head off to our local brew shop? We live in a small town, and so our brew shop may or may not have the specific ingredients that you list, so if you have substitutions for the more uncommon stuff, please let us know what would be kosher.
