Default First Hefe

So my first Hefe has been sitting in the keg carbing for a week. I only have three taps and they were already being occupied. One of them kicked last night so I quickly cleaned the lines and the tap and hooked up the hefe. Poured the first glass tonight:



Man, this was my 3rd AG and I swore I screwed it up. Undershot my mash temps by a good 7º - 8º and just couldn't get them to raise. My SG was a good 10 points short as well. But I tell ya...I'm very impressed. Gives me hope that when I get it right it will even be better.

PERFECT! I just can't get over how well this came out.

About the glass...About 6 years ago Widmer in Portland changed their logo ever so slightly so they had a "garage sale" to get rid of all their old merch. A case of these glasses for $12!

Looks like an ordinary American Pilsner glass to me, not a German HW glass......but the beer looks good!
