Default Vergoldet Hefeweizen (Gold Plated Wheat Beer)

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Munuich Lallemand

Boiling Time (Minutes): 90
Color: 5.7
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 63 deg f 10-14 days
Tasting Notes: Creamy banana with gentle clove hints, with a slight toffee/caramel note.

Note: Key to a restrained banana & clove flavor is a low temp for fermentation 63 deg F. Ive tried the crystal 20 upto 1.5lbs & its just too much caramel. .5lbs just adds that hint of caramel and a beautiful golden hue. I got a deal on Tradition hops last year and really prefer them now to Hallertauer Mittelfrueh but you can substitute if needed and get great results.
