I'll have to post a pic of mine when I get home. It's just about carbed up now, maybe another day or two.

I've managed to get the flavors pretty much where I want them, but I've never managed to duplicate the color of a Weihenstephan. Maybe it's not a big deal. I'm wondering if they don't use a different base malt than what I get at my LHBS.

Thanks. I'm down to rationing the keg now. My next batch will be kegged and on CO2 the day I leave for Munich & Shannon for two weeks. It will be ready to drink when I get home.

Man, this is so tasty, if there was ever a good reason to start brewing 10 gallon batches, this beer is it for me.

I've got a bottle of Schneider Weisse and Hopf Helle Weisse at hone too. I'll have to do a side by side by side comparison soon.

Sounds like a plan. I'm going to bring back a bottle of Weihenstephan Weisse (or two) from Freising (home of the oldest brewery in the world) in a few weeks.

Here's another popular weisse from Bavaria I enjoyed this summer in Freising.

Looking good! Hmmm Good.

Here's an Erdinger Dunkleweizen at the Brewery this summer. I have the good fortune to work for a company that has the German office across the street and since I happen to speak German, I tend to get to head over for work a few times a year.



My client who lives in Freising has a good friend at the Erdinger Brewery and arranged for a private tour. It was pretty sweet. They start it out with full size samples of every beer.

My hefe went from crappy to fantastic. I'm on my thrid tonight and it's yummerific. I think it could benefit ffrom a late addition DME add next time, but it's not too shabby now.
