I have been asking questions on this forum about making my first homebrew, a Bavarian Hefeweizein. I tried one last night. It's awesome! 13-day fermentation followed by 4 days in the bottle and it was very nicely carbonated. All the right flavors and smells are there - banana, clove, bubblegum, spiciness. I simply cannot believe how well it turned out! To my untrained palate, it is so close to Weihenstephaner or Paulaner it's scary. Thanks for all the advice!
