I'm looking for suggestions for a basic wheat beer extract recipe. After primary fermenting is done, I'm going to divide into smaller secondary vessels, each with a different fruit.

My local store has this basic hefeweizen recipe:
  • Extract 2 lbs Pale Malt Extract
  • 4 lbs Wheat Malt Extract
  • Hops 1 oz Hallertau Mittelfruh (60 minutes)
  • 1 oz Hallertau Mittelfruh (0 minutes)
  • Yeast Safale 56

Anyone have a better suggestion?

most important thing is nailing the fruit ratios and deciding which ones you like. i don't know about wheat extract and conversion, but assuming that ferments fine it should work well as a platform.
