Just an update, it certainly did become hef-ish. It tastes pretty good, but obviously not what I wanted. I will definitely be trying this one again in the spring, this time with us-05.

Very cool! If you're a fan of wheat beers, this is a good one to keep in rotation.

I actually keep this one as a spring/summer seasonal.

CrookedTail, I was looking for a new recipe to brew this weekend and ran across your Honey Balz recipe. This is an old post so hopefully you're still out there.

What do you think about using WB-06 instead of the US-05???

WB-06 is more of a hefe-weizen yeast strain. US-05 will keep it cleaner, and allow the malt and hops stand out more. I don't think it will turn out bad, just different.

I ended up using the WB-06. There wasn't any airlock activity so I'm going to check the gravity in a couple of days to see if anything's happening. If the gravity is where it should be I'll move it into the secondary for 2 weeks, then keg.

I can't wait to try it.

Just brewed up a variation of this for a competition. All late hops.

Fermentables
5lbs Wheat DME
.5lb Honey Malt
1lb Honey (added @ flameout)

Hops
1oz Amarillo (9 AAU) @ 10min
1oz Citra (14.1 AAU) @ 10min
1oz Amarillo (9 AAU) @ 5min
1oz Citra (14.1 AAU) @ 5min
1oz Amarillo Dry-Hop

US-05 yeast

OG: 1.052 IBU:46

Just moved this to secondary a few days ago. Tastes like an IPA. Very nice if you're a hop-head. A couple of weeks will allow the bitterness to mellow, and it should be very good.

Just tapped this version. It is FANTASTIC! The citrusy hops elevate this beer to a whole other level.

Your revised version sound tasty! My version with the WB-06 wasn't bad, but had too much of a peppery / clove after taste. I ended up putting an orange slice in the glass and that made a huge difference. I've got a Mossaic IPA finishing fermentation next week and plan on brewing your original recipe with the US-05. I'm anxious to compare to the Heffe yeast.

Citra and Amarillo are a match made in heaven! I have used the combo many a time.
