I boiled for 76 minutes. All tastes fine but I thought it would be lighter! 2 cans of Breiss Bavaria Wheat LME and 1oz of hops.

My hefe came out dark like that. Same amount of Bavarian wheat extract (I think I added some dex to it to kick up the avb to almost 7%. This was for a family vacation last August and I wanted it to be lighter, for the fact that my brothers gf (now fiance) likes light beers. She absolutely loved it, even though it was darker. Hefe's are great beers. I got the recipe on here in the recipe forum. I used tettnang hops. I'll be brewing one again this summer.
