This Wheatwine is a regular at our brewery. We brew it every other year. My wife made it this last time and it turned out stellar. She likes to make it as a 3 gallon batch. You can scale it up if you want a bigger batch.
We have used a variety of yeasts on it. WLP007 Dry English Ale and WL1056 work well. This time we used Pizza Port yeast cultured from a bottle of High Tide Fresh Hop IPA and it turned out very good. She missed the OG a bit and started up at 1.095. The FG was 1.017 for a 10%abv

How long would this need to bottle condition, I've noticed a lot of the big beers take a long time from start to finish, is this one the same or being a wheat beer is it ready in a relatively short time?

generally i'd keep this beer in the primary for at least three weeks tp 4 weeks. then i'll brash cool it for a week or two the bring the temp back up to 65 df for dry hopping. dry hop for 1 week, 1o days max, then keg or bottle. this beer will get better with some time in the bottle.

I made a wheatwine quite similar. See my drop down recipe for updates. Gets better with age. Like 6 months +
