Oberdorfer Weissbier Clone - Extract w/ Grains
 
Its tastes pretty damn good. I used 3068 but my first impression (sucking foam) was of Hoegaarten Wit. I was getting mostly aroma. Further down you can taste the clovey-ness.

I'd put this solidly in the hefe catagory!

This is easy drinking. My glass is almost empty as I add this post!

Wow - I'm really disappointed. :mad:

Nobody even commented on my nice Gosser six-pack cooler. :D

I'm drinking this Hefe an its mighty nice. Love the banana aroma/taste!!:ban:

Looks like lots of nibbles, but no bites...:D

I'm sure it tastes great, but why did you use Mt Hood hops and Irish Moss?

Kinda not IAW the Reinheitsgebot and inappropriate hops for the style.

I couldn't get the noble hops (Hallertauer?) so the LHBS substituited with Mt Hood. I don't know why on the irish moss, it was part of the recipe.

I'd agree now that you mention it that its kind of pointless to use it in this beer.

Damn tasty...:mug:

homebrewer_99 04-19-2008 05:43 PM

I could have sent you an oz of Hallertau...all you had to do was ask...;)

Schlenkerla 04-19-2008 06:02 PM

That's good to know!!! :)

I'm pretty open to substitutes on hops in light of the shortage. I always like trying something different. I don't do AHA/BJCP competitions so it doesn't really matter to me.

I really like this hefe.

homebrewer_99 04-19-2008 06:14 PM

Good enough then...Prosit!!:mug:

I'm drinking this now. How awesome it tastes. The balance of banana, clove and tartness is perfect!

Got friends over now, they love this. One said this has been the best beer of mine that they have tasted!!

If you are looking for a good spring/summer beer you need to try this!!!

I am doing a brew (2 actually) of this coming up in two weeks. I will be using some harvested WP300 and Tettnanger. I will do one batch per your recipe and another as a pumpkin wheat. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Let me know how you like this one. Post your pumpkin wheat. Leave me a link when you do.

I drank this one so fast. Its good right after its carbed. No aging really needed. I bottled this, I also made sure to pour a half bottle, stopped swirled the bottle to raise the yeast, they dumped it in to my hefe glass.
