Oh yeah, I forgot to update -
this was a very good beer. My mash ended up running 80 minutes and went from 152 down to 150. This made the body a little thinner, but for a summer slugger this turned out to not be a bad thing. I did not do a side by side, but the taste is just what you expect from a Bavarian hefe. My color was dead on for the hefeweissbier, not the dunkel. Didn't break my heart though.
