Simple and delicious extract kit.
This was my first ever home brew and it turned out great! One friend said that he has never liked wheat beer at all but he loved this one.

A straight forward beer to brew and a fun beer to play around with. Use a Hefeweizen yeast to get those nice esters and phenols. Use a clean American yeast (05, 001, 1056) if you want to play around with other additions.

a good beer
I brewed this beer at the end of September. I was a little worried about the yeast, it came to the house with the bag already puffed up. I just tossed it in the frige and waited for brew day. I did my starter 24 hours before brew day and hoped for the best. I did see that the abv % was a little low for us here in Texas. I had a some dry rice extract in the house, so I added 1 pound to the boil. after boil 7 days in primary fermenter, then 7 days in secondary fermenter. my OG was 1.061 my final was 1.01 = abv 6.6 % . I bottled it and let it rest for 1 month and tried a few of them. it was great !!!! no sweet taste to it, not to hoppy. I have friends that are wheat beer drinkers. they all loved it. they said a wheat beer with a good taste and a good buzz to. I am here to order another kit or 2. ha ha ha I only have 2 bottles left now.

An O.K. brew
This is a good brew, but I prefer the Hefeweizen recipe kit over this one. This one is a little more bitter.

Good summer brew
Zested an orange and a lemon for the primary. Was a crowd favorite for the summer.

Simple...Excellent
Very easy-to-make beer, and turned out delicious. I just brewed it straight-up, no modifications, and it ended up being a very light, clean wheat beer, great with a lemon, and great for enjoying while sitting out in the sun.

A good base to start with
I decided to do extract for a shorter brew day and this turned out to be one of my simplest but satisfying beers yet. It is a good recipe to start with as a base. I suggest modifying the recipe to your taste.

I added another pound of DME, the zest of 3 oranges, some coriander, and some light hops and the beer turned out very quaffable and light in flavor/mouthfeel. I think if you stayed with the recipe they give, it would be too light and flavorless. I generally don't like wheat beers and this wasn't too wheaty or estery.

Crowd Favorite!
This is by far the most widely liked beer I have brewed to date. Not everyone is a hop head and even fewer are porter or stout drinkers, but when it comes to this recipe...EVERYONE loves it (especially the ladies...wink-wink)! I added 6 pounds of fresh strawberries in the secondary the last time I brewed it and it gave a nice tartness to the beer that made for a great summertime beverage. Easy, affordable, and delicious.
