Josh's Quick Hefe: For 5 gallons: 6 lb.

But it's simple and tasty. Activate the yeast pack according to the directions on the back of the package. Add wheat malt to 2 gallons of water and, while stirring, bring to a boil. Make note of the time the boil starts and add 1/2 oz of Hallertau hops. Do not boil too hard, make sure it is a calm boil. After 45 mins of boil add the 2nd 1/2 oz of Hallertau hops. Boil a final 15 mins then turn off heat and gently stir for a few minutes. Cool the wort and add to fermenter on top of 2 gallons of very cold water. HINT: 8 lbs of filtered ice = 1 gallon of water. Top off to 5 gallons. After the wort cools to 80° or below open the yeast package and pour the contents on top of the wort. Ferment for 7-10 days at 68°-72° F. The final specific gravity should be 1.010-1.012. Bottle or KegAt that temp, the yeast will finish fermentation within 7 days - 10 days at most (if cooler). That yeast imparts little to no acetaldehyde, and it gives off amazing banana/clove notes at the recommended temps. There is no need for extra time to clarify or for the yeast to "clean" the beer. The byproducts in that beer are what make the flavor profile. And since it's a hefeweizen, it's not going to clarify anyway, nor should you want it to. Anyway, it's a very quick and simple recipe that can easily be expanded on. Try steeping some carapils for extra body. Or add a cup of honey for some dryness. It's a pretty versatile recipe and a great introduction for people moving away from HME and into doing their own hop schedules. You can probably do this with the Bavarian Weissbier and some Golden LME, too, but I haven't tried this yet. I think I'll give it a go sometime this month and get back to you. The yeast is the key. You can cut this in half for a 2 gallon batch, but it will be slightly stronger in flavor and ABV (not a bad thing).
