So I did get the CL freezer I was asking about earlier. I ordered a starter brewing kit from Austin Home Brew and it, along with the keg and secondary glass fermenter came in yesterday!! I am still waiting on my temp regulator and kegerator conversion kit but hopefully that will get here next week.
So now comes the first brew. Unfortunately the wife and I much prefer lager to ales. I'm not sure I want to start out that way though I technically have the supplies for it. We really like Yeunglings and Sam Adams. There is a place called BJs (a chain) that makes a hefeweisen we like so I thought perhaps that is the way to go? I could order a kit from AHB but I would like to support mu local home brew store for convenience and because I am just like that. Unfortunately, I live in Orlando and their website is not very good. (If I buy there much I may offer them a new one for supplies or something because I can hardly stand it; hopefully they aren't board members and I just offended them lol).
I found a recipe here
I could get 6.6lbs of Munton's Wheat LME, the LHB store sells the hops as well, but all I could find was Bavarian liquid yeast, nothing marked Hefeweisen. Is it possible for me to make this from what is availae at the LHB store? Is there a better recipe?
Sorry in advance if anything I asked is overly trivial; I really tried to read first but there is so much out there!! I just don't want to wind up with a crappy Budweiser clone for my first beer!!
