Took gravity reading again. Same as before

Difference this time is that it's cleared up a lot and it also doesn't taste as good at all. Still good but no way near like before.. tastes like a different beer.

Any advice?

Make sure you get the yeast in it, makes a huge difference to the drink

That makes sense! Hmm so how to make sure I get the yeast in when I go to bottle? I was planning on syphoning into a bottling bucket then going from there. Do I want to suck up a load of the trub from the bottom then?

When you prime your bottles just you will get sediment in the bottom of the bottle, just pour some of that in he glass with the beer
Clear Weiss beer can be just as tasty as well

All bottled last night. Got 40 bottles. 39 glass and one plastic so I can see how it's carbing up and it's already quite hard.
How long until I can drink?

I usually try my first bottle at about a month
Most people like to drink it quite young to catch the bubble gum/ cloves flavours, If when you try your first bottle and it’s a bit sulphurous tasting leave it a couple more weeks before you have another and see how it goes
Of course if your first bottle is ok drink away

Got impatient so tried one tonight.

Super impressed! Tastes amazing, so smooth and has plenty of banana and bubblegum with just a hint of clove I'm guessing because I brewed this warmer. No sulphur that I can detect. Lovely thick white head that lasts to the end of the glass. Pours dark straw coloured and cloudy, a little darker than a standard hefe.

I would absolutely recommend giving this kit a try. I would compare the taste to a Franziskaner, one of my favourites. I'm going to enjoy drinking this very much!

Easily the best brew I've done so far. 10/10 for Festival!

Thanks for the update, keen to make one of these for summertime supping (i.e. next year!), will definitely be going for it based on your positive review.
