Ingredients:6 # Wheat xtract syrup
1 # Dry Weizen malt extract
1/2 - 1 # mild honey
1/2 tsp gypsum
1/2 tsp irish moss
20 grams tettnanger hops (use 24 grams if using mixed style wheat beer

3/4 c corn sugar
1/2 tsp ascorbic acid

Notes:WHEAT BEER YEAST COMMENT: Traditional wheat beer yeast is a delbruckii
yeast. It produces a very sour taste, much like when one adds lemon juice
to wheat beer. Modern commercial wheat beers yeasts mix half delbruckii and
half ale yeasts. If that is the kind of yeast you will be using, increase
the hops.
