In terms of a clone of Schneider Aventinus, it came out quite well. The first batch was a little hot due to fermentation issues, but the second batch with the same recipe and careful fermentation...

This isn't really an issue with unmalted grains like wheat that have tons of protein, and a protein rest can help some with efficiency when you have 50% wheat. I've done a number of Hefeweizens with...

Useless factoid: 7 1/4" is the actual size of nominal size 8" lumber. Measure a 2x4...it's actually 1.5" x 3.5".

"Back in the day", a 2x4 would actually be 2x4 when it was green and roughcut. ...

Definitely agree with the bocks if you're up to a lager. Otherwise the Scottish ale seems like a good choice, or an English brown ale.

I'd be tickled pink and think it'll be a great beer. It should certainly be malty with that grain bill. I use Pilsen + Munich in my O-fest and like it, but have considered going Vienna + Munich.

Holy bump!

You would use less pellets than whole hops, but dang if I remember the conversion. Maybe 90% of the whole hop #. Although, for this recipe, it probably wouldn't make that much...

Terrapin also makes a nice IBA. I saw an attempt at a clone here:

They changed the name to Hop Karma at some point.

I'm also confused where the Dead Guy grain bill comes in. For a Maibock, I'd just go with ~65% Pilsener, ~35% light Munich, and hop to ~25-30 IBU's.

The pH strips are a great idea...my rule of thumb is to toss it out when it's cloudy and/or won't foam up.

Ding ding ding! Bittering in most Hefeweizens will be in the 10-14 IBU range. Just enough to offset the sweetness, certainly not enough to have a hoppy character. I recommend adding just enough at...

If you're adding actual chocolate, I would add it to the boil. Chocolate has a lot of head-killing oils in it which will be isomerized (isotroped...isomer..something) during the boil.
