Just tested my first bottle of Hefeweizen, it's been in the bottle for a week, good carbonation, but I'm sure it'll get better in another week or two @ 68* I poured it slowly and was surprised how clear the beer was. It didn't have any yeast haze to it at all.
I dumped the rest of the bottle into the glass and now have the traditional hefeweizen cloudiness.
I thought that hefe's were suppose to remain cloudy and not settle out like mine has...
8 days in the primary
8 days in the seconday.
3 week in the bottle before the fishing trip
it's very drinkable, but has a disappointing 3.8 ~ 4.0% ABV was hoping for 4.8 but low og due to inefficient grain (mini-mash) procedure.
Not to worry thought I think that all 24 bombers will be consumed without complaint from my fishing buddies.....
This board has helped me tremendously! Kudos to all of you *expert* homebrewers!
