Notes

I've been drinking this for a couple of months. Overall I think it was a pretty good effort. Despite all of the talk that hoppy hefeweizens don't work, I enjoy drinking this every time I reach for it. That said, it's way over-carbonated. I used 6.25 oz of corn sugar, which is not that much more than what I used in a normal hefeweizen I brewed around the same time (6 oz, and i thought that one was under-carbonated). I'm thinking perhaps it's the high hop content in the beer coupled w/ the wheat malt. In the future, I'd use 5.75 or 6 oz. In contrast, I just brewed a typical hefe and bottled w/ 195 grams (nearly 7 oz)... still waiting for that one to condition.
