Default Recipes that use only wheat/barley LME?

My LHBS carries Briess Bavarian Wheat (65% wheat/35% barley) LME that I would like to try. I'm curious what recipe(s) will work well using only this extract? I was thinking of trying a SMaSH-like recipe by combining this extract with hops, and that's it. The simplicity of this is intriguing.

Do it. It'll work fine.

As far as recipe, something like some of this extract, some hops, boil it, add a pack of dry yeast, and you're done.

Without steeping grains? I'd imagine some kind of wheat beer would be about it. Take between 7-8 pounds of it, put in 8-15 ibu of bittering hops, and make a wheat beer.

So a simple wheat/barley LME with hops would be a fun thing to try.

But I'm also curious what recipes/styles out there use only wheat/barley for the extract?

You would be making a basic wheat beer like Northern Brewers extract wheat beer.

If you don't steep anything, you're pretty much stuck with a basic wheat beer.

I might just go for a simple Hefeweizen, found some recipes that use only wheat LME and a single bittering hop addition.

That's what we've been saying!

Hefeweizen is the german word for wheat beer. If you only use LME and a bittering hop, it's exactly the same thing.

Hah as you can tell I'm still new to this I was thinking that Hefeweizen contained other ingredients besides wheat.
