Any time I trying a new recipe, I get nervous. This was my first time brewing a Hefeweizen, and I was NOT disappointed.
Easy-to-follow directions and fresh grains. I used the Wyeast 3068. The finished beer is light and crisp, with a pleasant banana undertone.
This kit will definitely be added to my regular rotation!
I am not a fan of Hefeweizens but bought this recipe to give as a gift after bottling. Of course I had to save a few for QA purposes. After conditioning in bottle I put one in the fridge to try, I must say this is by far the best Hefe I have had. I would make this one again for my self. It has strong banana notes that I have not noticed in others I have tried.
