Yes, it's .25 ounces. It's a tasty beer.
Edit, I didn't see that this had already been answered.

just wanted to follow up on my extract version. in a nutshell here's the recipe I ended up using:

6lbs DME wheat
.5lb DME extra light
1lb Vienna

heated 4 gallons of water to 160 degrees. Let Vienna steep 25 minutes (too busy talking to my neighbor that just got a home brew kit). boiled, added the Wheat DME (added the other DME around 30 minutes into the boil -not sure why, just seemed to be the right thing to do?) then followed the posted hops schedule:
0.25oz Motueka Hops at 60 Minutes
0.25 Sorachi Ace 20 minutes
0.25 Motueka Hops 20 minutes
0.25 Sorachi Ace 7 Minutes

didn't add any lime zest.

made a 1.5liter starter with White Labs Hefeweizen IV Ale Yeast the night before. Cooled to 80 degrees, added water to bring OG to 1.055 (around 6 gallons total) and pitched the yeast.

fermentation was bubbly by the next morning, explosive by the next evening (good thing I used a blow off tube! By the way- how do you clean out the messy tube?). on the 3rd night, I added 1.75 liter bottle of simply raspberry lemonade. didn't get to check on it till after the weekend (another 2 days since adding lemonade). Didn't seem to be as much blowoff, but could have just settled down more. still bubby 5 or 6 days later...

kegged @ 1.009 for final ABV 5.41% if I did my calculations correctly.

overall I really like it. I'm not a huge Hefe drinking but my german friend came over and really enjoyed it quite a bit.

Biggest thing I'd like to change for the next round is to make it lighter. Mine came out more of an IPA color than a lighter Hefe.. any ideas of what I could do to lighten it up? add DME later in the boil? less wheat and more extra light?

but two thumbs up on the recipe!

Slim - finally tried this beer last night after much excitement and anticipation. My wife and I love it. Glad I already have the supplies on hand to make another 10 gallons. Thanks for the recipe.

I am three days in on this one and I still have a pretty active airlock. Safe to add lime aid ya think?

If you do, then switch to a blow off tube.....or if your fermenting in a bottle, then you can sanitize a sheet of aluminum foil, lightly cap the top (making sure foil drapes down the side a a couple of inches) and this will let the gases out without letting wild yeast in.
