Walter Wheat | 5 Gallon Beer Recipe Kit | Extract

Walter Wheat | 5 Gallon Beer Recipe Kit | Extract

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

  • Our Walter Wheat ale recipe combines a scientific experiment of non-traditional malts, complex hopping list, and a secret ingredient (see below!)
  • Includes Cascade, Amarillo®, Simcoe®, and Crystal hops
  • Estimated ABV: 4%
  • Estimated IBUs: 28-32
  • Makes 5 gallons of finished beer

Start brewing bad with Walter Wheat!  The ultimate wheat beer that you can make legally... at home... without robbing a train to get the ingredients.  We perfected our secret formula but unlike W.W., we are willing to share. We started with a tradtional wheat malt mixed with regular malted barley to get that perfect wheat/barley blend. Then we left tradtional and added some modern scientific twists that might just set the standard for Wheat Beers.  We use acidulated malt and melanoidin malts to add malty crispness (yes malty crispness). Our super complex hop list of Simcoe®, Cascade, and Amarillo® hops put a lot of pop in this beer. And then of course we had to mellow it out a little with a dose of Crystal hops in the finish.  

The super secret ingredient? Ok, ok we'll tell you that too....  Brewing Bad Rock Candy added at the end of the boil. These blue raspberry sugar crystals lend a raspberry flavor that completely blends in to add complexity, depth, and we think a little pizazz, but in no way over powers the beer.  You won't be thinking Raspberry Wheat, you'll just be wondering how you can get more. 

And while a kick ass brewing lab would be a great place to make this beer, you can actually do it right on your stove top, in the kitchen, with the windows open. It might not be as profitable, but we guarantee a whole lot of fun.  You better get brewing... 

  • Makes 5 gallons
  • Estimated Original Gravity: 1.040-44
  • SRM (Color Range): 6-8
  • IBUs: 28-32
  • Estimated Alcohol Percentage: 4%

Note - The recipe kit will come with 2 oz of the raspberry rock candy, but if you'd like to add more that will need to be ordered separately from the options below.

Our recipe kits DO NOT include grain bags, yeast or priming sugar. To find our yeast recommendations, choose your preferred kit option above and then select the drop-down menu under “Yeast Options”.  For more info, click on the recommended yeast(s) below in the “You Might Also Need” section below. All included steeping grains will come milled.
Liquid Malt Extract (LME) vs. Dried Malt Extract (DME)
MoreBeer! recipe kits are offered in both Liquid Malt Extract and Dry Malt Extract so that our customers can choose the format that best suits their needs and brewing style. LME is a viscous liquid, similar in consistency to maple syrup. In addition to being the more affordable option, many brewers find LME easier to handle than dry extract. DME is more condensed and comes in a powder format that is similar to baking flour. Although it’s a little more costly, DME is naturally lighter in color and stays fresher for longer. We highly recommend DME when brewing light colored beers.

Great value. I think the excellent price is a great value. I don't think I could have ordered the ingredients separately at your price for the kit..

Good Brew
Tasty, clean, and hoppy. The blue rock sugar is a nice gimmicky touch, but if you want a blue tinge to your beer you'll need a coloring additive.

A good amount of hops
Great price ok kit- but in my opinion it’s a lot of hops for a wheat beer. Used as a base for an orange wheat and hops are a little overpowering for my liking.

Great Brew
I added another pound of DME to this extract kit to give it a boost. I can't bring myself to put the candies in there tho. I've brewed the All-grain twice but didn't have time and need something in the keg. Extract came out way better than expected. 1.053 down to 1.014 in about 6 days, chilled and kegged 6 days after that.

Love this kit
I have done this kit several times, each time I have modified it in some way. I have added fruit, beets, you name it - every beer turns out great.

Not what I expected
Let me start by saying this is a pretty tasty beer. This one needs a little extra time after bottling to sit. When I first tasted it, it was more like a session ipa than anything. The more I let it sit, the better it tastes. At no point, however, have I thought this tasted like a wheat, nor did I ever get any hint of blue raspberry. Maybe I’m not the best judge of what a wheat should taste like being mostly a hop head. It’s good, but I won’t be doing it again.
