Description

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.

Estimated Original Gravity:1.050-54
SRM (Color Range: 4
IBU's: 12-15 Estimated Alcohol Percentage: 4.5%


Our recipe kits DO NOT include grain bags, yeast or priming sugar. The recommended yeast(s) can be found below. All grains will come milled, unless you select unmilled base malts.

Great hefeweizen!
Awesome hefeweizen! Came out super tasty. I added about 1/2 lb of rice hulls to prevent a stuck mash.

Good Hefeweizen
I will be buying this kit again.
I liked the higher wheat to barley ratio, and the price is right.
I did a hybrid brew in a bag batch sparge method.
O.G. was 1.054 final was 1.010.
I used Wyeast 3068, 1 week in primary @ 68F then to a keg.
The results are good.
Next batch i will try my first single decoction mash.
Prost :)

What a Hefe!
This is one the best smelling beers I have ever brewed. During the boil it smelled like fresh sweet bread. During fermentation the combination of the wort aroma and Mangrove Jack's Bavarian Wheat yeast were heavenly. The finished product is awesome! What a great daily drinking beer. It finished at 5% and has great banana flavor with a hint of clove and spice in the background. Why are you still reading this review? Buy this kit!

A No-Nonsense Hef
A very easy brew that makes a really classic Hefeweizen: easy-drinking sweet with a thick, creamy head. My friends that don't like beer loved the taste of this and my friends who do like beer kept sneaking into my fridge for another bottle.
Easy-peasy great Hefeweizen!

Great first quencher
This brew is fantastic. I did like recommended and fermented at 62 degrees. I added 1lb of dme, 1 cup of honey and the included corn sugar to the boil just to bring up the abv a little. Finished at about 6%. I will be brewing this annually

Great Mild brew
This is a nice easy brew for the summer, good stuff!
May 27, 2015
Wow, so simple but so good...bring on the hot weather!
This beer is super easy and simple...but so good.
The head was like whipped cream.
I messed with the recipe and doubled the hops.
The result was more lemony bitterness...it might mellow but I would not mess with the recipe.
It was great, this will be a summer staple...great beer for a pool party.

Nice Summer Drinker
This was only my 4th All Grain batch and still dialing in my brewing process. With the summer weather already here in the North East (Delaware) this Hefeweizen could not come at a better time. Adding some blueberry's and plan to drive the tractor until the keg is gone.
