You should get pretty good head with this one.

How's the effervescence factor. Is it bubbly in the glass?

It might be that your gizmo is giving you such good resistance, that your CO2 is staying completely in solution and not causing any head to start with.

Try holding the glass a bit further from the tap and get and aggressive pour toward the end...see if you can get a froth...then see how it holds on.

It is nice and effervescent, the carb stays through the time it took me to drink the glass.

I made a pretty aggressive pour and got some head, but it dissipated quickly. I made sure my glasses are as clean as I can get them, but the water is full of various minerals and salts here.

Bumped the pressure up to 12psi yesterday and tried an aggressive pour today. I had head, but it didn't stick around longer than a minute. Any ideas?

Made a 5 gallon batch of this one a few months ago and it is very good. It was very citrusy early on, but mellowed out after about 6 weeks perfectly.

Edit: Also, I don't know if I would call it a Boulevard Clone, mine didn't quite seem like the original. Just to much grapefruit flavor I think, but I almost like this one better .

Well I made a second batch of this in July and entered it into the River City Round up competition in Omaha where it received a second place in the Light Hybrid Category. Thanks for the recipe BierMuncher.

Was thinking about making a double batch of this and adding blueberries to one. Would that be too much for this? I see strawberries were a hit, but blueberries are more tart, and didn't know if that would blend well with this. Any thoughts?

My only comment is that I did this last spring. Wish I hadn't. It's a novel idea, but when all is said and done, the standard wheat beer disappeared long before the BB wheat version.

I'm just sayin.

Thanks, I appreciate that. I don't think I can go wrong with the wheat alone. I love me a nice wheat.

Thanks for your input!!

I was wondering if adding Orange Peel to the Secondary would add some nice flavor on top of a already good brew. Also what was the ratio of strawberry to gallon. Thanks for all the good recipes.
