German Hefeweizen - Extract Beer Brewing Kit (5 Gallons)

German Hefeweizen - Extract Beer Brewing Kit (5 Gallons)

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

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!

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 info@moreflavor.com or give us a call.

Our first Hefe
The flavor of this ale Hefe is something else. We get a little bit of smoky flavor, plus the wheat, and a fruity finish.

Great Hefeweizen
This beer is super simple to make but turns out great. 3 weeks in primary and then kegged. Nice banana/clove flavor. It takes virtually identical to a local craft version, only darker in color. WIll definitely make again.

Smooth clean beer
My brother and I brewed this beer because of liking the Hefeweizens we have tried. Did not disappoint. Very nice clean from first sip to finish.

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.
