Default 7 day grain to glass hefe

Brewed last Saturday, pitched a big starter of 3068, kegged and force carbed Friday night, and enjoyed with friends on Saturday. Great great summer brew, my dog was enjoying the day also.

What was your FG? Did you cold crash for a few days before racking? It looks like there is still yeast in suspension.

Love the haze in my hefe's...3 tsp of flour with 15 left in the boil ensures it doesnt dissipate after time in the keg.

It actually looks like it has flour in it. I don't know...does that affect the flavor? I hate to be a douche, but it doesn't look appetizing.

Hey I love it, to each his own. The flour doesnt affect flavor when minimal amounts are added, simply for haze retention.

The recipe uses 3068 so it's a real big banana/clove german hefe..

That's what it's all about; if you like it that's all that matters. When you said it was ready in 7 days and it looks that cloudy; the only thing that comes to mind is that the yeast hasn't dropped out o suspension and it's still green. Pictures can be deceiving though.
