Don't know if I am allowed to do it but as it is public information I thought I would do it anyway

0 min hops are dry hops in secondary. Yeast is US-05 (although my personal favourite is WY1272 - American Ale II). Mash in 66, mash out 78. Ferment at 18C. So easy! So tasty! 31 IBU in beersmith.
My latest variation used JW trad and JW caramalt instead of Wey Pils and Wey Caramunich. Hops adjusted to 20 min and flame-out. No dry hopping. Scored 46/50 at ANAWBS 2008 and was best beer of show (bottle conditioned for 2 months).
1 can Thomas Coopers Sparkling Ale
1 can Coopers Wheat Malt
250g Caramalt (or other light crystal)
15g Amarillo @ 15, 5 and dry hop.
Yeast - US05
If doing full extract, replace the can of Sparkling Ale with a can of unhopped light malt extract. Add a 60 min bittering addition of 20g of Amarillo.
EDIT - 7/09/2011
Try replacing the wheat with rye. Any american hop works well in this recipe.

Lord Raja Goomba I: Why do so many people think "newer is better" with kegs, when the cheap Chinese junk that come from KL/KK are thin, rubbish quality and the older American and West German ones are clearly better quality. 😱😤
