Boil for 60 minutes, then cool the wort to 70°F and transfer it to your fermenter.
Add your hefeweizen ale yeast strain and allow it to ferment at 68°F for two weeks until fermentation is complete. After fermentation, add priming sugar and bottle-condition the beer in 12 oz bottles or growlers for 2–3 weeks before serving chilled. Enjoy!
