What strain? (WLP320 or WY1010 possibly?)

If you used an American Wheat strain IMO it will make a considerable difference in flavor. The Bavarian Hefe yeast is what give the style all of it's clove/banana character - you likely won't get as much of that with an American Wheat strain.

Either way it's probably fine to bottle already.

No idea what the american wheat was...the guy that worked there said it would just change the color a bit and not the flavor but I was still skeptical.

O well nothing I can do about it now.

I am talking about the grains and not the yeast. The yeast I used was the one in this thread.

Think you guys might be confusing what I said. I used American wheat grains and not german grains.

Ahh gotcha. My mistake.

Subbing American wheat malt for German is not going to affect this recipe at all. Might change the color and malt profile just a hair but unless you did a side by side comparison you wouldn't notice the difference.

Awesome.

I gotta take a gravity reading and possibly bottle this tomorrow.

Forgive me if I've missed this in the thread, but I'm looking at buying wheat malt, and I can buy Weyermann Pale or Dark. I'm assuming by looking at the pictures I want the pale? Lovibond 2.4 vs. 7.3 for the dark.

So I just bottled this. My OG was 1.050 and I ended up with 1.008. Can't wait to try this around Thanksgiving.
