just bought the stuff for my brew of this today and i am excited to get this under way. My only problem is i have bottle shortage and might have to wait since i have 5 gals of cider and 5 gals of mint chocolate oatmeal stout that would be ready about the same time as this. Too much beer happening at once....man the things i go through

Bummer, I know. The hefe's great, and I'll likely make it again without the blackberries. After I bottle the part that's with the blackberries, I'll let you know how it turns out. I have high hopes.
txcoyote,
How did the blackberries work out?

I did a variation of this as my LHBS only had these and I was in the mood to experiment anyway.
I steeped 1lb of wheat malt at 155
3lb of pilsen LME @ 60
3lb of wheat LME @15
1oz Hallertau @60
WLP300 ( this yeast is a beast ) it actually cracked the plastic lid off my airlock and pretty much destroyed it, it was shooting 3 feet in the air by the time I realized it as evidenced by the stains on the wall. I had it in a closet in the main house which is always around 68-70. I usually ferment in the basement but this time of year its in the low 60's if not lower.
It's day 8 in the primary and after some furious action the first 2 days it seems to have died down but there's still a hefty foam on top. I think I'll just leave it for another week or two to let it settle.
OG was 1.048 and it's down to 1.014
It smelled awesome, can't wait to try as this is my first Hefe.
I haven't tasted it yet but I'm sure I'll be brewing this again ( probably with original ingredients this time ( if they have them ))

If you can't find Carahell just substitute Crystal 10L. I just like using German ingredients in a Hefe as much as possible but C-10L is pretty much the same thing. You can also substitute other Noble hops. Heck, you can use a different yeast if you want to also. There's quite a few great Hefe yeasts available. I just use dry yeast because it's "simple". Plus, I like the characteristics of Danstar Munich.

Here's to hoping for a tasty brew.

They're still in secondary. I got busy at work and haven't done anything brew related in a long time. I'm hoping to actually bottle this weekend.

Just brewed this yesterday. Was going to try WLP300 but they were out of it. So I looked for Wyeast 3068. They only had a starter. I wanted to brew. So i used safeale S-33. Prob more along the lines of a plain wheat beer? Its fermenting at about 72. Im hoping for some banana and cloves but i dont im going to get any.

Took a grav sample the other day. Only 3 days after brewing. Gravity was where it needed to be, and it tasted amazing. Def more of a wheat with the yeast I used.
