    Not sure if the right thread, but give it a go. Anyone brewed a hoppy wheat? I have recently brewed a few IPA's and have wanted to brew a wheat, but it is hard to give up the hops. Any recommendations for hop additions, varieties and timing? Dry hopping?

    not sure where you live (as in, if you've ever tried one) but you could go with a gumball head type wheat pale ale. it's got a nice light wheat body, but great amarillo flavor from the late addition hops.

    It sounds familiar, just send me 4.5 gallons and I will call it good.
