Basic American Hefe with German hops.

Turned out great, FG 1.012. A bit on the bitter/hoppy side, which is not a bad thing, but not as refreshing as it should be. Tettnanger can be a real spicy hop, and it is showing through. The bite is not bad, and I think that will mellow out a bit after a couple weeks. Next time I will scale back the hops at least 25%.

More wheat malt and less Pilsner might also give it more grip, the body is a bit light.
