That's right... On Friday, I took a much needed vacation day from work and did a solo brew. I decided to go with a dunkelweizen, mainly for 2 reasons...

1.) I've never had a dunkelweizen

2.) I love wheat beers.

The brewing process went smoothly. Everything looked and smelled wonderful. I also picked up a 5 Gallon Better Bottle carboy (plastic and much cheaper in price than glass). Of course, the bottle did not have the Gallon marks on the side, so I topped it off to where I thought was 5 gallons. This batch may be short a few bottles of 2 cases, but no need to worry, there will be plenty to go around!
