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!

Jonathan M A on Feb 7, 2020
I've brewed this before but it turned out quite darker than I had hoped. Would putting the first 3 pounds of DME in at the beginning of the boil and the last 3 pounds towards the last 10 minutes result in a lighter beer with similar flavor?
Michael Perman on Jul 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Michael - Is it possible that the DME had been burnt/caramelized during the boil causing the finished product to be darker than past batches? To fully understand the process and for us to provide proper advice, please email us at or give us a call.

Great Summer Brew
Added 0.4-oz freshly ground coriander seed and lemon zest at flame-out. Fermented with Imperial Organic Stefon yeast. 1-week in the primary then straight to the keg. Pressurized to 12-psi and shook until fully carbonated. After one week, it tastes great! This is one to drink as fresh as possible. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but that's to be expected for a 4.5% Hefeweizen. Lots of yeast in suspension, but that's the way I like it. Might have cleared more in a secondary with cold crash but then you lose that lovely yeasty characteristic that pairs so well with the malt. The wife loves it. Great for these hot summer days!

Great Hefeweizen recipe
This recipe works great with the Weihenstephaner yeast. It’s as close as I’ve ever come to the real thing.

Brew it !!!!
Very easy drinking beer. Great for those who aren’t part of the IPA craze. Can’t find an easier beer to brew. Great for those staring out. A bit hazy may want to use clarifier. Absolutely will brew again

Easy brew!
This is a breeze to brew. Only one hop addition & not multiple addition schedules. It is fermenting nicely right now!

Kit 235 German Hefe
Easy kit to make, lots of banana aroma, used WLP 300 and fermentation was very vigorous but during bottle conditioning it took an extra week to get carbonation up to make a head. Might do this again because a few folks really like a mild beer.

I made this as an extract.

I've drank a lot of Hefeweizens over the years and this one will stand up to any of them. Clove with a touch of banana. I could not have asked for a better result!

Easy recipe, tasty brew
This is a great standard brew, that is the easiest beer ever – no hops to add, no grains to steep, just malt to heat up and brew. This makes it kind of boring, but that also means that there’s less room for error, and that it can be completed relatively quickly while doing other things on a Sunday evening.
The beer itself is pretty good, too. In my brewing of it, it’s a tad sweeter than I want it to be, but the hef flavors are all there, and it’s mellowed with age. Definitely recommend for a good straight-forward hefeweizen beer.

Simple to make, easy to drink
Brewed this and it was almost too easy. It taste good, but the mouth feel leaves a little to be desired-it's really thin. I did add some extra hops I had laying around and it turned into a nice, hoppy, hef.
