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.

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.

A good German hef - be careful!
a very straight forward beer. A good test of your water and sanitizing. Any off flavors will show up because it has almost nothing to hide them.

Hefeweizen
2nd all grain brew. Been brewing Weise bier for a few years now with Mr Beer Kit. After living in Germany for years I appreciate a great tasting brew. Taste tested after transfer to my bottling bucket and really impressed with the taste and flavor.

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 :)
