The best way to bump up the gravity without majorly changing the flavor is to use a smaller volume of water. If this is extract, fill with one gallon less water or so.

I made a wedge of 1x2 to go in the cooler, 2" in the front tapered tapering down the sides so the cooler closes at an angle. I've got my taps going through that, and then I just strap down the lid.

Since none of those yeasts really have any Weizen character, maybe it would be better to make an American style wheat? A weizen really relies on yeast character, without that, it's not going to have...

I like Windsor yeast, but it doesn't have a german Weizen character at all. It's my go-to yeast for a malt forward English style.
