BrewMate Doesn't have some of the ingredients I use listed in their options, so this is the actual ingredient list I used. The basis of my recipe came from Northern Brewers Bavarian Hefeweizen recipe, I just tweaked a few things and added a few things.
2 x 3.3lb. Cans of Briess Bavarian Wheat LME
1lb. Bavarian Wheat DME
1oz. Tettnanger Hops
1lb. Orange Blossom Honey
Zest from 4 Valencia Oranges
Bring 2.5 gallons of water to a boil and remove from heat. Add one can of the LME and dissolve thoroughly. Bring back up to a boil and add your first and only hop addition. Start timer for 60 mins. With 20 mins left in the boil add the whirlflock tablet. 15 mins left in the boil turn off heat(stop timer) and add remaining LME and DME. Bring back up to a boil(start timer) and With 10 mins left in the boil add the orange zest and honey. Cool wort and pitch yeast. Ferment at 66-68°F for 3 weeks in primary.
