wheat beers are great for extract cause they are so simple. no specialty grains are needed to produce a nice wheat beer. i'm sure this recipe came out great.
drinking: mocha java porter, belgian pumpkin ale, Gary's oatmeal stout clone, AHS nut brown, catamount porter clone, double nut brown, rye pale ale, my oatmeal stout

conditioning: nut brown

next: saison, wit, american wheat, hefe, kolsch, blonde

gone: too damn many

I did the same recipe as AG recently using the 3068 Weihenstephan yeast. Cracked one open Friday (10 days in bottles) and it seems good, but obviously is still way too green and undercarbed to say for sure (I'm going for about 3.0 volumes carbonation). I think in another week to 10 days I'll know how I did. It's a simple recipe and if I wind up digging the finished product I'll knock out another one for summer and keg it.

I've also ingredients for an Aventinus clone, so hopefully I'll get that done and have a significantly more complex example of a wheat beer to compare with.

I dumped Oregon Cherry Purree in the secondary. Came out great!
