A couple of weeks ago we bottled the hefeweizen that we made from the Northern Brewer kit. At that point the signature banana aroma was pretty strong. After a couple weeks in the bottle, it’s even stronger, but much more blended with the other aromas in the beer. If you get this kit, get it with the Wyeast 3068 Weihenstephen yeast. Husband loves hefe from having served in the US Army and being sent to Germany. I also love it. Generally we drink Franziskaner and this is quite comparable.
Just got a bottle of Dogfish Head Ta Henket, their version of an ancient Egyptian beer. I was pleasantly suprised that Wegman’s had this in their beer section; they also had Midas Touch. The Ta Henket will be tasted tonight, and the Egytpian pantheon toasted, especially Sekhmet who really likes her beer. They’re at least some fun, if just as imaginary as any other.
