Description

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/barleyblend. 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 puts 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... 

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 or yeast. The recommended yeast(s) can be found below. All grains will come milled.

Made it previously, and it's excellent. I rack it onto a gallon of lemonade and make a shandy.

Looking for a wheat beer with a little bit of fruitful flavor. Also liked the customization comments from some of the customers.

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.

Love it as a base for adjuncts
The first time I brewed this, sampling as I racked to secondary, I quickly decided I preferred to cut the edge on this just a bit by adding some frozen juice concentrate. Have done Apple/Mango/Peach in one batch, Pomegranite/Cherry in another, and love the results.

Great Wheat Ale
This is a really great recipe kit - I've made it four times now. Instead of using the rock candy, I've started adding Coriander, Grains of Paradise and lemon peel to it, and turning it into a summer ale. The most recent batch I kegged with lemonade and made a shandy, and it came out fantastic.

Excellent Boat Beer!
I tweaked this a little - I gave the rock candy to my kids and used lemon zest, coriander and grains of paradise instead, and it's one of the best kit beers I've ever made. It also makes a very good shandy - I put about an once and a half of lemonade in a pint glass and pour onto it.

A great beer for experiments
I have brewed this twice. The first time I added rhubarb in fermentation and it turned out great. The second time I used rasberries and it was again a great beer. This makes a great base for adding flavors and the candy an interesting back note. I will keep brewing this beer.

Fun wheat beer to brew nice hops line up.
Just tried the first bomber really nice aroma, and finish. Good beer to chill in the heat with. I did add more rock candy and some raspberry extract at the end of the boil. Nice little hint to the beer as you drink it you have this moment you ask yourself is that fruit? ABV came out around 5.2%. I think I will get a little wild and try it with 2-3 lbs of whole raspberry next time to see what happens.

Added Crushed Raspberries
I wanted to see what I could do with some added fruit, so I followed directions but then added 36 ounces of crushed raspberries on day 14 of fermentation and allowed it to ferment another 12 days before bottling. While I normally am not a fan of "fruity" beers, it turned out very well and I will probably repeat it in the future. There is a tart and distinct raspberry favor with good level of hop flavors still coming through. The ABV ended up being 5.3%.

Great summer beer
We just drank the first bottle and it is very good. I added 12oz of rhubarb to the secondary which gave it a nice fruity sourness. A great summer ale. This is one i will make again.

I can dig it
This is a good recipe kit, and for the price, it can't be beat! The raspberry candy doesn't really add anything. I wish they gave you a little more of the candy as the amount they provide isn't enough to get the any flavor from it. Overall, I am enjoying the brew. It's super easy drinking and very light, and I'm glad I made it. I'll be enjoying this one all summer long!

Response from MoreFlavor
I can't find a way to edit my review, but I take back what I said about the raspberry candy. The flavor is definitely there, it gets stronger with a little bit of age. It's not overwhelming, but it doesn't really taste 100% natural. I like the beer, but next time, I'll use real raspberries to get a more natural raspberry flavor. 4/5 stars
