Franziskaner

I have a friend that likes this stuff so I thought I’d
brew him a batch. Iv’e read that NB’s AG Bavarian
Hefeweisen comes about as close as anything but I
would like any advise on which yeast strain would be best.
Any other thoughts are welcome. Thanks

Which Franziskaner specifically? There are many varieties.

Franziskaner Hefe Weissbier brewed by Spaten-Franziskaner Brewery, Munich, Germany
What other beers have that name?

No need to be a jerk. You wrote “Franziskaner” and that is all. Franziskaner is a brewery that is part of Spaten. They make many beers. So next time try and be a little more specific. You pretty much asked “How do I brew a Sam Adams”?

Sorry. I was ignorant of that fact. Here in Oklahoma we do not have
a lot of choices of beers to buy. The only Franzi I ever saw was the wheat.
I get your point about brewing a Sam Adams. I was not trying to be a jerk.

I’ve made the NB hefe before. It’s good, but not the Franzi you’re looking for. I got a recipe from the Weyermann site and brewed it last December. It was awesome. Unfortunately, I don’t think that particular recipe is posted on their site any more. I’ll post it if you like, but I don’t have access to it at this moment.

I personally like Wy 3638/ WLP351 best for a Bav Weiz. mid 60’s grad. up to 68.
