Taste Notes

Inspired by my trip to Bavaria for Octoberfest...Greate balance, smooth taste, great bannana and clove flavor, straw color - a great Weizen!

Notes

A great beer - needs to be aged for at least a month for the strong yeast to smooth out a bit. Sparge slowly to avoid a stuck sparge (lots of wheat). Prost is the traditional German toast - like saying "Cheers!"

Excellent Weiss

by Gargamel

Brewed a mini batch of this recipe, and it did not dissappoint. Best beer I've made so far, and out of all the beers I serve to other people now, this is definitely the one that makes their eyes widen while drinking and their faces turn into a great smile as they put the glass down. It simply tastes like a great weizen! Fresh, great banana aroma and well balanced. Used Whitelabs Hefeweizen.

Superb!

Brewed a 20l batch, and everybody loved it! Brewing a 40l batch now.
It is actually very well balanced because of the pale malt adittion (I used Maris Otter from Muntons). I also replaced the yeast (because I couldn't find it) with Mangrove Jack`s M20 - Bavarian Wheat.
