Bottling a lodo helles

Counter pressure filler, wet lined bottles, beer flush to remove sanitizer, CO2 flush and cap on foam. No yeast trials yet.

Glad I found this thread.
My lodo hefeweizen is nearing bottling, if I'm to bottle it with residual extract/bottle spund. FFT was 1.011 (OG 1.050). I figure bottling at 1.015 will get me the carbonation I'm after. Does this number sound right ?

Beer was batch sparged, and mash water was treated with 20 mg/l SMB (to avoid excess sulphites with the hefe yeast), and 60 mg/l ascorbic acid.

Is this the preferred method people would suggest for bottling ? In the past (before I was oxygen conscious) I would have left the beer on the yeast cake for 3 weeks, then bottled with bulk priming. Good for cleaning up fermentation products. Terrible for O2 damage. Wondering if the beer will condition properly in the bottles if bottled with residual extract.

Sorry to crash a helles thread with a Hefe question :\

The proper way to do it, is with speise. That's bottle conditioning but with saved wort instead of priming sugar.

I still do all wheat beers this way and I used to do my lagers this way too.

Usually one ferments to finish, waits a day, then bottle.
