I think I need to give it more time in the bottle to increase the carbonation. It was real bubbly but then flattened before I finished it. Thanks for the great recipe! What a nice start to my brewing experience. Next up is the Belgian Tripel!
Excellent! It'll get better in a few weeks, but drink it fast! Welcome to the brewing community!

I'm going to try this one- Extract - Belgian Trippel (2006 World Beer Cup Gold Medal: Dragonmead Final Absolution clone). I've tried some Tripels from our Total Wine store (awesome selection!) so I want to try to make one. I may also try this quad later- Multiple - The Pious - Westvleteren 12 style quad - if there is an extract version. I love this beer! Have you made any that you like?

I have been drinking my "simple hefeweizen" brew since...sept now. VERY good, will absolutely brew this again! I gave a 6 pack to a guy I work with that went to Germany last fall, coming back with a love for hefe. He said he felt my homebrew was better and fresher (obviously) than what we have available here, which is actually a good selection.

I will, needless to say, be making this again come spring. Not before I make Kolsch again

loubie, thanks for the tip. Maybe I'll try that one in 2013. Haven't done a tripel, but last night I bottled my dubbel (Northern Brewer kit, decided to try one of theirs). Tasted nice without carbonation.

Just brewed a dead simple hefe today. I added a half pound of carafoam to see if that helps with head retention at all; mostly I was just curious what would happen.

Ferment for 10 days, keg at about 4 volumes (or bottle) and enjoy. (Full boil recommended). Nothing fancy here, just a very easy and quick Hefe that manages to disappear rapidly. It's almost too simple to post but My friends and I dig this beer so much I figured it might be worth sharing. Fermenting in the mid 60's makes for a very clean American style Hefe but my last batch fermented around 70 and is much closer to a true Bavarian style. This yeast has always fermented very vigorously for me so use a blowoff tube. Enjoy
Hey, thanks for the recipe. I used something similar but 6# wheat dme, a little different steeping grains and wlp 380 ( American hefe ale). I was thinking of doing a twist with dry hopping it with mosaic and citra. Think this will be good? I was gonna use 2 oz, not sure it that's too much or if that would be great!
