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.
