Default Extract Hef recipe wanted

Hey everybody. I have a few beers that will be ready for the proposed November beer swap. I want to try and have on more ready. I figure I could do a Hef. I want something quick and simple, yet tasty. Does anybody have a good extract recipe for a Hef?

I hit up a couple recipe sites, as well as ours, but I just wanted to try one more source (you guys) before I send my order into AHS!

Thanks everybody! This could potentially be one of yours in the swap!

For a simple hefe I just threw 6lbs of wheat DME into I *think* 2 g's of water. I used 1oz hallertau for 60 minutes and 1 oz tettnanger at 15 I think. Hefe's are really simple from what I've been reading around. Granted you could probably spice it up a bit but this should turn out decent.

3lbs Light DME
3lbs Wheat DME
2 oz Munich Malt Steeped at 155 for 45min in 1 gallon water


.75 oz Hallertau 60 min
.5 oz Sazz for 15 min

WLP300 Hefe Ale Yeast
O.G. 1.052

Hope it helps!!

This hefe is awesome. From DeFalco's website:

6 lbs. wheat malt extract
1/2 lb. wheat malt grain
1/2 lb. six-row pale malt
1/4 lb. cara-pils malt
1 oz. Hallertauer hops (bittering 60 minutes of boil))
3/4 cup corn sugar for priming
1 vial WLP300 White Labs Hefeweizen Yeast)
OG 1.044, FG 1.010 = 4.5%v/v

Steep grains at 155 for 40min. 1-stage fermentation for 14 days at 74˚F. 11 days in bottle. fantastic fruity nose, and long-lasting head. tastes a little sour early on, then melds. Nose goes away after a while too...IMO, a really, really good german hefe.

Really simple and easy from "clone brews" Paulener Hefewiezen but I substituted weheinstephen wheat yeast and I added a pound of corn sugar and got a 1.054 OG. ABV is 5.5 which is about what its supposed to be.

4 oz. Munich malt
6# wheat DME
1oz. Hallertau Hersbrucker 3%AA
Wyeast 3056 Bavarian Wheat (I used the above and its really good)


I think its hard to go wrong with a hefe.

BTW How did your Brown Ale turn out? I'm getting ready to do the "Nukey Brown Ale" from Northern Brewer.

Good Luck
Al

I've modded many HWs, but normally boil 1.5 gals water with 1 lb extra light DME and 3%AA Hallertau hops for 45 mins. Remove from heat then add 5 lbs Wheat DME and steep for 15 mins. Pour into primary with filtered tap water and top off to 5.25 gals. I use WLP351 Bavarian Weizen yeast.

Easiest recipe in the universe:

6 lbs Wheat DME
1 ounce hallertau
boil for 60 minutes
cool and add WLP300
ferment at under 70

bam! great hefe...not to say it's the best but it's easy as hell

EDIT: oh yeah, don't forget the blow-off tube

Deathbrewer recipe is awesome. I used it (actually the credit goes to cheesefood) and it was great. no need to get all into what grains for the flavors. The flavor comes form the yeast. I heart WLP300.

hb_99 and DeathBrewer have nailed it IMO. 6# of wheat DME is the way to go, and is already ~50/50 wheat to barley which is perfect. You can add hops after the initial bittering charge if you like the profile, but I wouldn't for an authentic German Hefeweizen.

DB's recipe is the same as morebeer's; I'm about to keg mine, and I have to say that it's mighty tasty!
