This recipe for Wheat IPA is a web-only recipe from Jamil Zainasheff's "Style Profile" on specialty IPAs.
"The key when devising a recipe for a Dunkelweizen (or any other beer) is to make it in a manner that you believe will live up to your personal taste. That is the main reason many people homebrew. Want a hop-head Dunkelweizen? Add more hops! An Imperial Dunkelweizen? Double the extract/base grains and the bittering hops! On the other hand, if you are one of those brewers who like to stick to a recipe, give the recipe below a try!"

"American Wheat beers have grown from the basis of the German Hefeweizen. While they can be crystal clear, most retain the cloudy appearance of their forefathers. Typically the American hefeweizen is a light to medium body beer that is made of over 50% wheat. The wheat flavor and “fluffyness” should dominate the malt side of the brew."

Special congratulations to Ken for being named the 2005 Carolina Brewer of the year!
A majestic American wheat beer, brewed with a little help from the hive. The level of bitterness will be determined by the malt extract you select.
