Yeah, I thought right after I sent my last one that I shoulda changed the 
subject first...

Well most German beers are lagers and while I like them (especially a good 
Marzen) I am not into brewing them as they have more complicated needs.  As 
for wheat beer, I'm talking weissbier/hefeweizen (Weihenstephaner is 
considered a classic standard).  I love dunkel weizen and wiezenbock but 
haven't gotten around to brewing them myself yet.

That is ideal for me since I can come out for a long weekend instead of taking 
off most of the week.

Ah now that is cool.  I have signed up.  I think between inexpensive 
accomodations and the timing of a long weekend, I can probably do this trip 
pretty easily assuming no major things come up.  Besides who can say no to a 
few days in SD in December (when it is cold and wet at home)?
