A few weeks ago I had a hefe at Gordon Biersch and loved it. Thinking about trying to brew something similar… I’m an all extract brewer, so I’m looking at NB’s bavarian hefeweizen extract kit. GB uses hallertau hops in their brew, while the NB kit comes with tettnang. The liquid yeast option for NB’s kit seems to be the same as what GB uses(weihenstephan 68).
So several questions…
Should I order some hallertau and sub them for the tettnang?
OG of the kit is under 1.050 so is one smack pack(no starter) enough? I’ve never used liquid yeast.
I really like the banana and clovey taste, so would anyone have ideas for a good ferment temp to accentuate these flavors from the weihenstephan 68 yeast?
Thanks for any help
