The hefe part just means that there is yeast in the bottle, most likely you are
already making it this way, unless you're filtering the brew. I usually buy
these types of (import) beers because I feel that it travels better if it has
some yeast in it.

Since my blowoff tube never contacts the wort/beer (at least not the brew I
drink), I just soak it in a real strong Tide tm detergent (no scent) and hot
water and it comes right off, then I rinse it really well, then I clorox it.
I used to use count-off, alconox, and micro brand cleaners but Tide works just
as well and its cheaper too.

Hefty Weiss for all,

John - the HopDevil
