Based on “Min første Hefe-weizen” from Brygladen.

4 kg. liquid Weyermann Hefe-weizen extract
30 gram Hallertau Hersbrücker hops

Started the yeast on Thursday (June 3rd). Found out that the packet had ruptured on Saturday morning, so started a new starter on a bit of extract in 1 liter of boiled water with a handful of hops.
