Finally cracked one after two weeks in bottles. Definitely needs a little more time to carb as I expected but this is my best batch yet and I want to thank the OP for the recipe. I'm a n00b and was getting discouraged after my first three batches were either hosed or not as expected, but this tastes great and it's the first batch I'm truly proud of. Thanks again!

Long-time reader, first time poster. This isn't my first homebrew, but I needed a quick and simple one to be ready for summer and this looks to be the one. I can't wait for this to be done! My last one, a creamy dark ale, went very well. Thanks for this recipe.

Brewing the partial version of this right now.

Using my daughters blanket and a few clean fluffy towels to make my brew kettle into a ghetto mash tun.

Attachment 58895

With the dry yeast grain combo even buying 3# Bavarian wheat with a pound left over for next time, this has turned out to be a cost effective recipe as well as one silly quick turn around time

There's nothing really wrong with my Franken wheat with wlp 400 every body has enjoyed it and it is easy to drink. Enjoying one right now.
I am thinking of starting a culture of some trader joes mission street hefewiezen and the body color ect seem almost the same to me and I like the yeast in that one. I guess I could call forestone walker and ask them about if they are bottle conditioned or pasturized. But at 2 bucks a 22 I might as well drink one and dump yeast onto some dme and see if bubbles happen.

Sorry for my ramblings.

Attachment 58901

The OG sample looks promising similar to the extract version I brewed 3.5 weeks ago

Sorry late night brewing on the west coast.

Ha ha yeah I love me some 2 dollar 22's. I just looked at those posts and between using my phone to post and drinking a few too many beers I managed too butcher the post. I hope I didn't screw up the beer as bad as I screwed up the posts ha ha. Ne ways I just took a stab at culturing one of those mission street heffe's figuring that the 22 was half the price of the package of danstar munich from my lhbs and it comes with a beer and a 22 win win

Boiled ~12 oz(volume) water with ~2 oz(weight) wheat dme and cooled in an ice bath then I poured that into a sanitized 24 (no hops so I figured green would be fine) and swirled and dumped the last few oz's of the beer into the mix. There was alot of yeast in the bottom so I am hopeful that something is still alive in there. I shook up the solution and covered with foil.

I hope this works out if so I may pitch this into another batch of this yummy simple heffe in a few days.
