German Hefeweizen - All Grain Beer Brewing Kit (5 Gallons)

German Hefeweizen - All Grain Beer Brewing Kit (5 Gallons)

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

A true German style Hefeweizen recipe using 60% White Wheat malt and 40% 2-Row Lager malt. Hefeweizen is a simple yet delicious and refreshing beer for hot weather consumption.

We recommend using WLP300 from Whitelabs with this hefeweizen recipe for the classic Weihenstephan German wheat beer flavor. Best results are obtained if fermented at, or close to, 62-64 degrees. Cooler temps help reduce the overwhelming spice and banana tones.

Note: If your fermentation goes a little crazy at first, don't fret. Just clean off the airlock and replace it.

Great kit, greater beer!
Great kit. Came quickly and good results. I used Irish moss to clarify. Yum!
Turned out great. Banana and clove on the back end. Yum!  All grain is the way to go!

Pair This With Omega Bananaza
I figure this would be pretty awesome with most of the suggested yeasts. I initially chose the dry yeast but came back and got the new Omega Bananaza yeast. The airlock smells heavily of bananas. The final product tastes of banana's but its more so that the clove flavor is completely missing.

I don't think you can go wrong with this kit, but I suggest giving the new yeast a try.

Some helpful tips!
The all-grain version of this kit makes awesome beer. The ingredient list looks simple, right? Only one small hop addition, two grains, and one yeast. And it is simple. However, the details are very important if you want to maximize its potential. Here are some pointers.

First: if you're going with a dry yeast, ignore the dry yeast recommendation in the kit instructions. The dry yeast that is going to make the most of this kit, as of 2021, is the "Munich Classic" yeast by Lallemand. This "Munich Classic" strain is a different yeast from the plain "Munich" yeast, and it's very closely related to the "Weihenstephan w68" strain that's used in the world's best hefeweizens.

Second: If you do use the Munich Classic dry yeast or one of the liquid W68 strains, you can brew this warmer than suggested and the yeast performs great. I fermented it without temperature control at 62 F ambient temperature (the side of the carboy measured 72 degrees during the peak of primary fermentation!) and got a nice, well balanced flavor. The main thing to be aware of if you do let it ferment at 72 is that this yeast is a powerhouse mega beast and will blow your airlock out with great fervor. Use a blowoff tube for the first few days until the krausen settles...don't even try using an airlock before then. Use a larger fermenter than you think you need... my 5 gallon batch in a 6.5 gallon carboy still blew foam out of the blowoff tube.

Third: If you're using the all grain kit, wheat can be a bit tricky to mash. If you use the standard "60 minute mash" approach, you're likely going to have low efficiency, especially if you don't sparge. Hefeweizens are usually decoction mashed in stages which can help with efficiency, but instead of going to all that trouble, you can instead try a longer mash (90 minutes, for example). Use a mash paddle or a big whisk to really give the grain the business. If you batch sparge, let it sit for longer than you usually do. Measure your wort's gravity after the first batch sparge and if it's lower than expected, do a second batch sparge and boil it all down to your target volume. You'll get it to work.
This the dry yeast you need... the Lallemand Munich Classic.
Delicious wort.

This is the only recipe kit that I have bought multiple times so far. It is absolutely delicious especially if you add some orange peels and/or coriander.

Looks good
I haven't brewed it yet, but as the title says it looks good. I'll be using citra whole hops to make a citra weizen

Legit Bavarian Hefeweizen!!!
Legit! I travel to Munich for work 2-3 times per year and wanted to brew a legit Bavarian Hefeweizen. I used the wyeast 3068 and made a starter. I adjusted water chemistry for Munich. I also did a ferulic acid rest at 112F for ten mins before ramping up to 152 for 60 mins. I fermented at 64F and fermentation was very very active within 12 hours. Fermentation was complete in 7 days. Cold crashed to 36 degrees for 3 days and then kegged and carbonated. So 10 days, grain to glass, 11 if you count the 24 hours under 40 psi to get it carbonated. I highly recommend this kit. It is absolutely delicious with a great clove spice and subtle banana aroma.

Weissbier just like I like
This is the style I have brewed the most. This kit came out very tasty, and I was drinking it within 2 weeks. Added 1/2 lb. of rice hulls, but I suspect I would've gotten better Grainfather efficiency without them.

Great, simple brew
This is an easy ale to brew. It is a favorite summer beer. Yes, the fermentation is a bit crazy during the first 24 hours. The first time I brewed this beer, I had to keep cleaning out the air lock. Got smarter on the second batch and replaced the air lock with a piece of tubing into a half gallon jar.
