Good grief, this heat wave is crazy! I’m so over this 100+ degree heat.  I’m so glad I brewed last weekend. Last Sunday, I brewed a nice and simple Hefeweizen recipe from Brewing Classic Styles. This book is absolute gold.  Every one of the beers that I brewed from this book so far have been outstanding, and this beer looks like it won’t disappoint.
