This was my biggest crowd pleaser. I used the
3068 not the recommended yeast, and fermented low and got lots of clove. After a month this worked really nice with the lime. I have zero left. I had a friends batch with 3068 fermented at 73 and it was a banana mess- that would definitely suck in this recipe.

Thanks slim!

The end of my fermination is nearing and I was wondering what everyone was doing with this when it's ready. Cold crash then keg? That's the route I was thinking of going. Should it condition in the keg for any amount of time before serving, if so how long and s/b cold?

since this is a Hefeweizen and it's meant to be cloudy, there's no need to cold crash. I just kegged mine up and force carbonated to 2.7 volumes and let it go... it was a beautiful looking hefe and the keg was empty in about 2-2.5 hours when I took it to a pool party.

Can I use .5 lime peel instead of zesting my own limes? Like this: http://stores.mdhb.com/-strse-1271/L...for/Detail.bok

Just legged today. It's been under pressure only for a few hrs but I wanted to sample it. Wow what a strong lemon-lime flavor. Can't wait until its carbed up. Great summer beer. Kinda taste like summer shandy

I brewed up 15 Gallons of this today... unfortunately i was unable to find WLP380... closest thing i could find was WLP300 which i understands gives off alot more banana flavor... has anyone brewed this with WLP300? hopefully it will be good..
