Oops! Sorry for taking so long to get your comment up and then to reply. I haven’t been checking my email. *smacks forehead*

The taste was good, but too much hopy bitterness and not quite enough wheat. It was more of an American Northwestern wheat beer rather than a German Heffe. So we doubled up the amount of wheat in for the second batch. THAT was much closer to the kind of Bavarian taste I was looking for. Still too much hops, but almost there. What I’d like to ultimately like to do is replicate a lot of the good beers that I was drinking while stationed in Germany. The Franconian smoked, Dunklweissen, and so on…

Do you have your own blog yet?

It’s good to hear from you.
