Who Wants to Drink a Chipotle Chile Beer? #3: Afterburner Wheat

Yes, I admit it. This label just goes way overboard. Too cluttered. But I had just found these cool “Fink Fonts” based on the lettering in the Ed “Big Daddy” Roth cartoons, plus clip art! What else could I do.
Meantime, I couldn’t quite get the beer to ferment out completely; it’s less than 3% alcohol. I smoked the chipotles myself, and this is my first batch using the Northern Brewer hops I planted in 2002.
Afterburner won third place in the first round of the American Homebrewers Association’s National Homebrew Competition. It failed to place, though, at the finals at the AHA’s 2003 National Homebrewers Conference in Chicago. Here’s a .txt file of the recipe, with judge’s comments.
