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% Great Western 2 Row Lager malt. Quite simple, yet a 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 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

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.
Added a twist to this one...
I brewed this last January, and I fermented it with blood oranges. I zested the blood oranges, removed the pith, and simmered the zest and chunks of blood orange in a pot while brewing. I allowed that to cool to room temp, and dumped the contents of the pot into the fermenter. It was outstanding....almost like a Blue Moon. The wife has asked me to make it again.

Great little beer kit
Great beer kit, taste is awesome, done this with the WLP 300 and WLP 380 both are great with this kit. 380 fermented at 70 degree's has banana clove and apricot, I was told at higher temps (up to 80 it will throw off even more) give it a try, price is right

Great sessionable hefe
This was actually my first all-grain brew and it was wonderful! I used the wyeast hefeweizen to ferment, and would recommend this yeast (haven't tried the white labs however). Definitely plan on brewing this again this Summer!

Simple yet produces a great flavor!
This is a very easy recipe to make yet produces very flavorful results. The final produces a true hefe flavor with a perfect white head lasting through the whole glass. The bottled result is a very clear beer with a small amount of sediment in the bottom however, pour about 3/4 of the bottle in your glass, swirl the left over in the bottle and pour all of it into your glass. This will result in the cloudy "wheat beer" color you were expected along with that refreshing hefe flavor. Nice!
