"How to Brew" and other books I have read recommend boiling the sugar-in-water solution - Palmer cites infection concerns. I've almost always done it that way, and it works well. Doesn't really add...

You should also let it stay in the fridge for a couple of days - some say a week, but I don't have room for a week's worth of beer in the fridge. The time in the fridge lets it go into solution.

Maybe I misunderstood, but if you used a pale ale extract to brew a hefe, it wouldn't taste right. That could explain a lot. The hefe needs a wheat beer yeast, too.
