Taste Notes

The ex pat UK living in NZ keep asking for more, so it can't be that bad. Banana and clove with a hint of citra. There are a few citra hefeweizen's around and have found very nice - so you can add this or leave it out. Generally this recipe or the earlier versions using overseas malts/wheat's have still produced a dam good hefeweizen.

Notes

Ingredients all New Zealand sourced, it is easy to convert to local sources, as past brews have been done with German wheat etc. Malts - www.gladfieldmalt.co.nz Hops - www.nzhops.co.nz (Hopspider - use 10% extra on volumes list) Made a 1L yeast starter, 36 hours before brew day. Keen to here anyone's thoughts on it, let me know and give it an honest rating.
