ive got about 35g of saaz sitting in the fridge i would like to use soon. (used 15g in a pilsner but coiuldnt notice much aroma) my next batch is going to be a wheat and thought i would dry hop the 35g in that. would that add anything to the wheat beer, as in making an improvement, or would it conflict with the style i am going for? has anyone used saaz in a wheat before? i know this is mostly based on personal preference but i guess i am just looking for reassurance. thanks

Traditionally German wheat beers have very low to no hop aroma but that doesn't mean you can't do it. Maybe just dry hop half the brew so you can compare - experimenting is half the fun in this game. Otherwise save it for a lager or a pilsner.

I have dry hopped wheat beers with saaz.

Rack into a secondary and dry hop with half the hops.
Taste after 1 week....if need be dry hop with the other half.

Note:
That the hop flavour will diminish over time...
