The thing that amazes me most about this beer is the incredible smooth creaminess it has. I've never had anything like it. It's creamier than a stout in a nitro can. It must be from the decoction. Citrus flavors are really making an appearance now.

it's actually not at all chocolatey or roasty. the dark wheat malt was labeled as 6-8 L and it actually gives the beer a malty taste not unlike munich malt. since the recipe does have some munich too, this hefeweizen is a bit maltier than most, which I really like. you've got me thinking about using the recipe as a base for a dunkelweizen now though. i wonder what about half a pound of the dehusked carafe malt would do. i bet that would be awesome.

Hello KingBrianI

This beer looks fantastic!
How many volumes of C02 did you carb it to?

I believe I used about 4 volumes. The computer with all my brewing info is currently sick, so I'm unable to find the exact number, but I usually shoot for right in the middle of the style so 4 volumes is a good guess.

EDIT: Just got my computer working again and I actually carbed with 2.7 volumes. I knew 4 sounded high but it was right in the middle of the range according to the dumb guidelines I looked at. Beersmith's guidelines for hefeweizens are 2.5-2.9.
