    I made a Vanilla Weizen from Homebrew Heaven... It was pretty good IMO!!!:mug:This sounds like
    more what you're going for. When I made cheesefood's recipe, it was quite good, but tasted like

    That's strange it turned out so low (and it was so cheap). How much malt did you add? That kit
    always costs me over $20 with the can and DME. It also usually tastes quite good, and winds up
    just under...

    Sorry for the smarta$$ reply, Scrappy. I though this was another 'teenager making hooch in his

    I have made that kit using the yeast on the can and it tastes fine. It will not be a Hefeweizen
    however, but just a plain wheat. You would need different yeast to call it a Hefeweizen or even
    have it ...

    I did use table sugar once for priming when I was in a bind. It was only 1/4 cup in a 2.25
    gallon batch for my Party Pig and the beer definately had a cider flavor. I had to convince
    myself I was drin...

    Gotcha. Buying in bulk is what saves you money. If you just bought the kit ingredients
    separately, it'd cost you $1-2 more per batch.Not always. A lot of time they charge you for
    things you don't need...

    First time I tried my autosiphon I had trouble. Turned out I just didn't have enough of an
