Mine went just went to bottles last week. The last sample to check gravity had a ton of clove and then hops on the back end. I didn't really have any banana or sweetness, it was super dry. While fermenting I kept it under 60 degrees for two weeks. I used 5 oz of priming sugar for 4.75 gallons. I really want to make sure it has enough carbonation without creating a firework show in the basement. Next time I'll use bombers so I can try to get close to 4 vol. of carbonation.

Hey guys, getting ready to make my second brew and have decided to try this Hefe. Was hoping for some help reguarding substitutions; I know my local beer store does not have Carahell. I've looked online, and from the threads I've come accross Crystal 10, Crystal20, or Carapils might work; anyone have an idea which of those, or even something I didn't list, would work better?

I'm also not 100% sure if they have the yeast listed; some alternatives I've seen on this thread are WLP300, Wyeast 3068 or wb-06. Any ideas on which of these would stay closest to style, or work best?

Thanks!

I've made several batches of hefeweizen without any carahell, crystal, etc, and I really liked the results. Has anybody else tried this?

I brewed a version of this last Sunday. OG was 1.046. Gravity today is 1.012 and right around where it's supposed to finish. If my gravity remains constant through the weekend should I go ahead and bottle it?

This is my first wheat so I'm wondering if there are any benefits or consequences for letting it sit until the 22nd which was my original planned bottling date.

The first time I did this brew, I used WLP300. I loved the results (as did everyone else who tried it!), and I'm about to make another batch with 300.

Brewed this recipe today with Wyeast Weihenstephan 3068 yeast, 6lbs DME and since they didn't have carahell, I used carapils... Probably could have skipped any grain addition, but figured a little real grain won't hurt (and only $1).

OG: 1.049 best as I could tell through the foam. Ought to be a nice Hefe when its done!

Rigged a blow off tube with a spare siphon tube I had and a carboy bung. It was a tight fit to get the tube in the bung, but it won't come out! Into an empty Makers Mark bourbon bottle filled halfway with left over spring water and a touch of cheap vodka.

Can't wait

Ditto with the WLP300. I have read carahell is close to a crystal 20.

This recipe is really great, and still people are talking about it after drinking all of it in less than a week, on our family vaca. Adding lemon peel and coriander next time.

I've brewed this twice when I've wanted something quick to fill a keg - and because it tastes great and I can brew up a batch in a couple hours on a week night!
