With summer in full swing I plan to do a wheat beer. I picked up the special
Wyeast wheat beer yeast, but have yet to get the wheat malt. From reading
in Miller's book it says for a wheat beer that you must use 6-row malt in the
mash with the wheat. The reasoning is that the wheat has no enzymes to break
down the sugars, and 6-row has a ton of enzymes (compared to 2-row anyways).

What is the hbd consensus? Any great wheat recipes people swear by?

What do other people think of the Wyeast wheat beer yeast?
