Beer Style: Weizen/Weissbier  (15A)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 US gallons



I recently brewed my first wheat beer trying to replicate the types of wheat ales and hefeweizens I used to drink in the Northwest; these types include Widmer Hefeweizen, Pyramid Hefeweizen and Wheat Ale, and many others I can't remember; but they all had a common, distinctive character that I think specifically typified the Oregon/Washington-area wheat beer. I prefer these types over the German weizens/hefeweizens like Paulaner Hefeweizen. I am pleased with my wheat ale and would like to know if anyone has any insight as to the particulars of those northwest wheat beers or any recipes for clones. I would like to experiment (read drink) in this area for awhile.
