Homebrew: Hefeweizen

I can't remember the last time I made a plain, simple hefe, without fruit or some other twist.  German style hefe is a great summer beer, so here is my recipe:

Steep at 150 degrees for 30 minutes:

4oz Caramel Munich 40
2oz Cara Munich 3

Boil for 60 minutes:
2kg wheat DME
500g light DME
200g amber DME
1oz Hallertau Hops (3.2% AA)

Pitched Wyeast 3333 German wheat.  Total - 20 litres
