very nice, yeah. I am originally from the NW too, hope to make it back up there at some point but started pretty big roots where I am at.

I love this beer on a nice hot day myself or every once in a while. I am not much of a fan of the banana and clove that the German style has and will probably get slapped by other members for that comment.

I suppose it may be up to preference, but I was wondering if we should treat this yeast (320) like any other hefeweizen yeast:
Meaning ferment for a couple weeks +- a few days or until fermintation is complete, then straight to keg, carb, and serve "young."

Was thinking about bumping up the wheat content and changing the crystal to 10L.
Will let you know how it works out. Planning to ferment at 62F/16.6C ish along side my hefe in progress, using wlp380.

This a good beer to have young, nothing wrong with that as long as you let it finish out. I think 62 is pretty low for this strain though, you want some character from the yeast.

I have all of the grain ready to go but when I enter the hops it said ibu was around 11 percent. I moved the ibu to 33 and the hops went to
.5 millennium
.5 warrior
1 cascade
1cascade
1 magnum

Will this be ok?

Don't use the magnum for aroma- what schedule are you planning on using these?

White labs said that the yeast can stall and you rack to secondary and it takes off again. Has anyone had to do this?

I never had to do that with WLP320, just keep them healthy and pitch at the right rate and temp and you'll be fine.

I made a 2 liter starter and have it in my fermentation fridge at 68 so I should be ok. Can't wait for it to finish!
