    Anyone have a good Bavarian Weizen recipe as a starting point? I found a few recipes online,
    but they are lower alcohol versions. I'm looking for more punch. Maybe an Imperial Weizen? It

    I had used WLP 500 Trappist Ale yeast when I brewed the Caramel Quad a few yrs ago. I was happy
    with it in terms of fermentation, but I had a bit of difficulty bottle carbing, even after
    adding fresh ...

    I have a long flat rubbermaid storage box that I keep all the do-dads I need for a brew day so

    Was waiting for me when I got home from a business trip yesterday! Can't wait to replumb all
