What kind of dry yeast is recommended?
Barry Holbrook on Sep 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: For this beer, which I generally use as a base for many different fruit beers, I find that I get fine results with US-05. There are no special esters or other yeast derived flavors you would be looking to generate for this simple wheat beer. US-05 is easy and does the job.

Great platform for additives
This is the go to for any fruit, beans or even nibs. I use american wheat (Wyeast), finishes crisp, 149 -150 mash temps. Add cranberry to this and you will make new friends!

My 4th time brewing this
Perfect base for adding fruit in secondary. I have used extract and Puree. This kit needs fruit though. Its really boring without additions!

Good beer
This recipe is easy and easy to tweak. I added blueberry extract to it for a good american hefe with a slight blueberry background. It was well liked by all.

Great
Brewed this as a full boil, went with the Light DME from beg. of boil and added the Bavarian Wheat at Flame Out. I also up the bill with a pound of raw honey, about 3/4 lbs of DME, and Sweet orange peel. Cooled to 75 degree, Oxygenated and fermented with a starter of WLP320 (700ml starter). Just to Amp it up a bit I Dry Hopped with 1 oz of Cascade for 5 days. Kegged it for 7 days days then enjoyed with everyone.

Can't go wrong with this one.

Glad MoreBeer has Reviews now!

Cheers!
