Well, the brew has been in secondary for 12 days and it's mellowing a bit. The funkyness of the burton yeast has mellowed and it's really got an alcoholic bite (7.9%). nice hoppiness. it's a bit thin seeing as how it fermented out too much, 1.010 and i wanted about 1.016 - 1.020.

but not too bad

A strong ale at that! sounds pretty good! I'm doing my first wheat AG this weekend. I don't really even like wheat beers. I guess my thinking is that if I make it, it'll grow on me. If not,I'm sure somebody will drink it.

My lady bought me 2 lbs of Petite Jean natural honey last weekend to use in my wheat. It's supposed to be the best stuff you can get in the state. I guess that's one good thing about living in the "Natural" state.

A fresh hefe is a beautiful thing. Try a big slice of orange with it. We went through 5 gallons at a party saturday night. 3 weeks from brew day to empty keg. Good thing I've got 5 more.

John, I envy you. You do have an advantage for wheat beers and Bohemian Pilsners in your area.
If I have the time, I'm brewing my wheat beer at a friend's house in Little Rock this summer. The water there is ideal for lighter brews. It's very soft and neutral. You can do just about anything with it. If nothing else, I'll bottle some up and take it back to Oklahoma with me.
