I <3 Weizenbock. For some reason I always thought they needed a much lower fermentation temp, say low 60s. I may have to try this out.

Probably because true bocks, being lagers, require a lower fermentation temperature. Weizenbock, however, isn't Bock

I remember reading the BYO Aventinus clone recipe and it requiring lagering. Although the bottle says it's fermented w/ale yeast. Kinda got confused.

Mashed for 60 minutes at 150, finished at 149, batch sparged with 180-degree water to collect 6 gallons. Final post-boil volume was 3.5 due to having boiled off a significant amount of wort.

If you scale the grain bill from 3.5 to 5 gallons you can probably get a full-sized batch. This was originally supposed to be a dunkelweizen but due to the use of chocolate wheat and the large boil-off (this was before I bought the pot for full boils and boiled side-by-side in two pots) it ended up being much darker and stronger. The mistake ended up placing me in a competition

Whats up with Palisade hops? How do they compare to something like hallertau or magnum

Palisade is like an American-style noble hop. So a bit of the cascade/chinook impression while still being reminiscent of german hops, I guess. I dunno, I'm not great on hops but I always try to change it up where I can.

I'm going to follow this recipe for my first all-grain batch. I love Weizenbock's like no other style, and I'm thinking of dryhopping with some more aggressive aroma hops. Thoughts?
