yo, I'm feenin' for somethin along the lines of Sam Adams' Summer Ale. I got a sixer the other day and it's pretty much what I'm feelin' for the summertime. Does anyone have a kickass American Wheat recipe (I'm 99% sure that's what the bottle said that it was) along the same lines? Thanks - I'm tryin to keep on the grind & brew as much as possible. :eek:

well since no one's responded, I've got this theory - if I respond myself a couple times, maybe ppl will think somethin's up and check it out, only to be tricked into givin' me a recipe. Let's see how it works

To kick your American wheat brew up a notch I recommend some coriander and orange peels or zest.This will add a very refreshing zest to your brew. I dont know your preference for taste or what have you, I'm just throwing my two cents in.
