So I decided to see what went into a hefeweizen. (6# wheat DME, tetnager, Weihenstephan yeast, BTW. Who knew?)
It's been in the bottle over a week, after sitting in primary for a month. Ferm temps got a lil warm, as we had a heat wave while it was going.
It tastes like a hefe. My hefe drinking roommates and Gf all loved it green.
I cracked one the other night to check carb/age. It tastes like a freakin smoothie. Now, keep in mind I hate the taste of bananas. So I will likely not be drinking a single drop of this batch.
My roommies and GF will be very happy, though.
Ok, maybe I'll cellar a 6pk for 6 mo just to see.

Yup, hefe for me too. Last summer I did up a batch with WLP380 and would have dumped it out if my wife and friends didn't enjoy it so much.

Everyone loves my Ginger pale ale. I'm not a huge fan.

A hoegaarden clone. It was alright, drinkable for sure, but i didnt like it all that much. It was actually made for the SWMBO because she loves the stuff, and she hated it. My dad on the other hand loved it and finished off both cases for me.

I hate bananas too.

Hefe will probably be the last of the BJCP ale styles I will brew - and then promptly donate to someone else.

I have a 35 IBU APA on tap right now that tastes like a Blonde Ale. It's good, I'm just not happy with it. Time to bottle it off and put something else on tap.

You are just a hop head, but I am as well the more the better!

I did an IPA w/ Nottingham that blew up and got a bit too warm in the process...combined w/ a water salts fubar it's too harsh. I don't dig on Notty in the first place but when it's really estery, I'd rather dump it...I have a buddy that has no problem drinking this harsh estery mess fortunately.

ONLY beer I have hated is Cream of Three Crops. Many people love it but it's the flavor I run from - yuk!

I guess I don't experiment with styles that I don't like. I'm not a fan of banana/bubble gum or an insane hop resin beer so I'm not going to brew that.

Might do bugs but I need to sample more before I put the time into sticking a dowel through a bung.
