you guys are right, hence why i'm asking you all..

olllllo, thank you for this and all the other advice you've given me.. I know i'm a pain.. hah.. I'm the type that needs a full understanding before I embark on something..

Wifey doesn't drink, at all really. Those 3 cherry wheats she had were the only 3 beers she had all year. She may have a glass of wine once in a blue - but we don't actually buy a bottle of wine.

Between us, screw her. Heh.. Wit it is!

Then you guys got to help me with a Hefe..

Dry wheat extract.
Hallertau hops - single addition.
Hefe yeast.


Done. Simplest recipe on the planet (no software here at work, so I don't have the quantities of each).

5lbs Wheat DME
1.0 oz Hallertau (60 min)
.5 oz. Saaz (30 min) (optional)
.5 oz. Saaz (10 min) (optional)
Wyeast 3068

That's my Dunkelweizen recipe w/o the Carmel and Chocolate malts.

Go to town.

It would actually be easier to start with than the Wit, IMO.

Cheers,

you can't go wrong with one of these simple wheats. and most of them are perfect without a secondary. nothing better than drinking homebrew in 10 days!

Been there, brewed that, drinking it now!

A tremendously simple recipe (my first) and I highly recommend it.

I was reading over the posts here, you guys mentioned a few recipes. I don't know much, and would rather start with a kit that comes with everything. I'll actually be getting two kits.. This way I can have both my fermenters going the first weekend I start.. From there I'll research more on mini-mash/partial-mash and all grain. All grain really calls my attention but I sort of want to KIS this first go (I don't believe anyone is Stupid)..

So can you guys suggest a Wheat Ale vendor/kit?

I'm going to do a little research on the apfelwein..

Eh don't go with a kit. The process really isn't THAT hard. Personally I'd stay away from a wheat ale for your first, wheat yeast needs to be a little cooler or you'll have to put in extra time to make it taste right (cloves). I'd recommend a darker recipe, porter or stout. Do a partial extract batch. Brewing with full extract is really not much fun IMO.
