The thing is fermenting so violently that its also blowing bubbles in my container the blow off tubing is going into. Definitely interested to see how this one will turn out in couple weeks.
That is always the case. The co2 leaves the fermenter through the tube and into the container of liquid. The co2 has to escape somewhere and that is why you are seeing bubbles. Perfectly normal.

Anyone try brewing this with peach? Looking to make a extract peach hefe and this one seems to be the most popular extract hefe recipe on the site so I'm wondering if just adding some peaches to a secondary would work out with this recipe.

I helped a coworker brew up this beer. His first one! Instead of using 1/2 oz of the hersbrucker I planned on using the full ounce. Not like it'd totally ruin it or anything and why waste hops? Well 20 minutes into the boil I happen to look at the package and it was actually 2 ounces!

My LHBS sells hops in 1 oz packages. He went to a local beer store that just started selling homebrew supplies. I think they are using 2 oz bags to move more product but that's neither here nor there. My question is...what will 2 ounces of hops do to the taste of the beer?

Make it hoppier
Instead of a hefe you made a Wheat Pale Ale, nothing wrong with that (see Gumballhead)

I just want to say "Thank You!" to homebrewer_99 for posting this recipe. I followed this recipe to a "tee", with the exception of using fresh Wyeast 3068. It might be the best-tasting Hefeweizen that's gone down my gullet. And it was carbed up after only 6 days of bottle conditioning with a very healthy head. Lovely balance of clove/bubblegum/banana notes when fermented at a steady 72 deg F. The only problem with this recipe is that it's TOO DRINKABLE.

Just tucked my first batch of this recipe safe and snug in my ferm chamber! Gonna keep it 68 until time to crash cool and keg. Brewing this recipe was a breeze! The LHBS didn't carry the wyeast so I went with WLP 380 Bavarian Hefeweizen VI. My pack of Hallertau was rated 4.6% AA so I used .75 oz for the 60 mins to compensate for my IBU and decided to toss the last .25 oz in with the rest of the malt at 15 mins left just for kicks. Really excited to see how this turns out!
