Nice crisp Hefe!
As summer was looming closer, I was craving a good Hefeweizen. This rendition did not disappoint. I brewed the mini-mash per recipe and used the Weihenstephaner Hefe yeast. Fermentation started after about 2 hours. The Weihenstephaner Hefe yeast is no joke! Nearly needed a blow-out tube, but all stayed in the 6 gallon Carboy. Fermented at 66 degrees for 2 weeks, then xfer'd to secondary and let clarify around 70 degrees for another week. Bottle conditioned 2-3 weeks. Damn! The smell of banana and clove were spot on and the taste and body were excellent. (though, I may have over-carbonated a bit). A seriously great, refreshing beer for a warm summer day. After sharing with friends, I now have 6 bottles left of the 50 or so I started out with. While not an exact match to the Live Oak Hefe, still a great Hefe recipe for all who love a nice, crisp, summer brew.

Great recipe, obviously very close to the original. I used the minimash kit, although I added a little more priming sugar to up the carbonation. I'd love to make this again now that I am AG and have better fermentation temp control. Nothing like a fresh hef!

After sitting in the bottles for two weeks, this beer tastes fantastic! It's a little bit stronger than the Live Oak, but it definitely tastes better than I would have expected my first batch to taste! I brewed the extract version by the way.

Live Oak Hefe is one of my favorite beers so naturally this was my first recipe to make when I started brewing. It turned out great. I was not dissapointed in the least. Has a nice body and flavor with a refreshing finish.

This was my first beer brewed in the last 15 years. Turned out pretty good and went pretty quick.

I did this kit using the Weihenstephaner Yeast. One of my first 4 or 5 brews and my ability of staying closer to the correct temperatures for soaking the grains was getting better, but still not very good. It really didn't matter, in the end! This is a great Hefeweisen! The common thing I hear out of anyone who tries it is, "its so crisp and refreshing for a homebrew". (they're learning!) OG 1.051 FG 1.018 Fermentation went on for 7 days and conditioned for 18. Into the keg and 3 weeks later, it ended up being everyone's favorite!! Definitely my most popular beer with everyone!! That keg drained the quickest of any of them so far!

I brewed the extract kit per the recipe. Fermented around 70-72... love me some bananas. This beer was great! I personally didn't find my batch at all similar to Live Oak, probably due to my high fermentation temperature. That's just fine by me; I love this brew and will doing the mini-mash soon.
