White Labs WLP380-Hefeweizen IV Ale

Brew as you normally would. I added honey in the beginning because I
didn't really want the flavor or aroma. I just wanted the boost in OG.
I originally planned on adding .25oz of hops at the end but got distracted
by dropping my 6.5gal carboy full of sanitizer on the floor. Luckily I had an
additional carboy at hand.

I fermented at room temp with out using the swamp method because I wanted to bring out those beautiful esters that the hefe yeast provides.
I racked to the keg at 6 days so it is a bit sweeter than it would have been but IMO it makes it like a chocolate banana milk shake. I'll for sure brew this again and even possible make a weizenbock version.

looks very nice for a session beer. think I'll try this with some of my washed 3068 that I have lying around. will make for a nice change from the standard Hefe's that I've been making.
