A German-Style Wheat Beer with a blond color and hazy appearance. There is very little hops in this recipe because the flavor is based primarily on the flavor of the very specialized Hefeweizen yeast. Six pounds of Bavarian Dried Wheat Malt Extract, 60% wheat and 40% barley, is used as the base extract. A simple, yet award winning recipe that has become a favorite with our customers who enjoy German-Style Wheat Beer.
This kit does not contain any grain, only Dry Malt Extract. No grain bag is needed.
*NOTE: If your fermentation goes a little crazy at first, don't fret. Just clean off the airlock and replace it.
MoreTips!: Try adding 8oz of Caramunich (GR591) & 4oz of Chocolate (GR600) to make a Dunkelweizen!
