Paulaner Clone

As I was prepping the Kegerator to fit two Kegs and two Air bottles, I noticed that the Red Ale keg was dangerously light. Uh oh.. That's gonna be tapped soon and I have no secondary fermenting. Sure i got the Stout, but that's not a simple drinking beer--it's a task unto itself. So i decided to move up the schedule and go ahead and start on my Paulaner clone.

I'm basing mine on the recipe from Clone Brews, so i won't post the full recipe here.

Suffice it to say, that the Hersbrucker Hop I was able to get here was 2.2% AA instead of the prescribed 3%, so i went to 1.5oz. instead of 2oz. And I'm using White Labs' Hefeweizen Ale Yeast #WLP300.

Just like my previous Hefeweizen batches, based on the Home Brew Mart recipe, this one is an active brewer, i.e. I had to turn off the boil several times and stir it back down so it wouldn't escape from the pot. I presume that means it'll be an active fermenter as well, so no airlock, but a hose and waterbucket instead.
