** Actually forgot to add the LME until after wort had cooled. Brought the remaining wort in kettle back up to temp and boiled for about 10 additional minutes. Then recooled for transfering into primary.
Beer took a bit longer to carbonate than I normally like.
My tasting notes: Good amount of Esters present, moderate mouthfeel, rich golden copper color. However typical clove flavors are not pronounced. Very easy drinking wheat beer.
Next attempt will have either Cranberry or a Berry flavor added to the secondary.
