US-05 yeast actually not the 33.

Also I am doing brew in a bag, stovetop. I was thinking about trying first wort hopping in this recipe too.

Reason: update

I think that sounds tasty. You might want to check out the new book "Brewing With Wheat" which has some details on Gumballhead. I believe it lists Simcoe as a flavor addition and a neutral bittering hop - perhaps Nugget. I can't remember exactly. But you're on the right track, and that would be a good beer.

We made a fairly similar beer. I didn't like it at first, but it has really improved over time. You can see more detailed tasting notes in there.

I have never had a gumballhead though...so you will have to derive your own comparison. I think simcoe would be a welcome addition to this beer in both flavor and aroma, but I would keep it balanced. The beer I am drinking is hoppy, but you can definitely taste the backbone of wheat. I would keep it this way.

I've never made a wheat, but i understand that a lot of the "wheatiness" comes from the yeast. So I'm curious, why not use a wheat yeast?

The wheatiness comes from...the wheat!

German Hefeweizens are a type of wheat beer that are very yeast forward. You are probably confusing 'wheat beer' with 'hefeweizen'. Even the american hefeweizen is yeast neutral though.
