Default hoppy hefeweizen

So i brewed my first all grain today and since I have been curious how a hoppy hefeweizen would taste with more aroma hops (had some wlp300 handy), that is what I brewed:

11 gal recipe:
10 Lbs 2row pale malt
10 Lbs wheat malt
2 Oz Hallertau 60min
4 Oz Hallertau flameout

I split the batch in two fermenters, one got the hefeweizen and the other got safale so-5. Ill let you know how it turns out. Oh and they will be fermented at ~62* in a controlled chest freezer.

I've never tried it. Everything I've ever heard is that hop flavor and aroma do not jive well with Hefeweizen esters.

That flameout addition looks like quite a bit of hops. That's enough to brew at least a couple more batches of properly hopped hefeweizen! I also agree with Edcculus, traditionally, there probably aren't any late hop additions in hefeweizens for a reason.

bottled it today, and it tasted excellent. The hops are present, but mild, and the esters from the lower fermentation temps work well in conjuntion. I liked it better than the beer made from the same wort but fermented with S-05 if that says anything.

My hefeweizen gets .5 oz of Saaz at knockout, works perfectly.

YMMV, of course.

Hey, why not? You may end up liking it better than a more traditional hefe and in the end, all that really matters is if you like it.

Let us know how it turns out.

There is a local WI beer that is a lot like a cross between a hefe and an APA.....it is late and dry hopped with Amarillo and who know what else, but wheaty and fermented with a "proprietary" hefe strain that creates esters strikingly similar to WLP380....the clovier of the two between 300 and 380. It's one of the only commercial beers I actually keep on hand.
