This authentic German-style wheat beer is light colored and fruity with clove-like spicy notes. If you ferment at a warmer temperature, more banana flavor will occur. If you ferment at a lower temperature, more clove flavor will occur. You can balance the flavor if you ferment between 70-74 F degrees.

Specialty malts: Flaked Wheat
Featured hops: Hallertau

O.G. = 1.050
F.G. = 1.012

Great First Batch
Followed instructions but brewed two 2.5 gallon batches. Both excellent and easy to do. I did a keg it, family and friends love it. Good starter brew.

Made this kit with mini-mash version and added 1 lb. of Vienna Malt to the steep. Replaced Hallertau with 1 oz. of Motueka and 1 oz. of Sorachi Ace and added 0.25 oz. of each at 60, 20, 15, and 7 minutes. Used Wyeast 3068 and added 1.75L of Simply Limeade after vigorous fermentation, which in turn started another vigorous fermentation for several more days. Ended up around 6% ABV. Great summer beer!

Good God, what a crazy amazing brew this is! I did a DME kit and i was not only surprised in the taste, but also for how clear it turned out for an extract kit. This is a definite re-order and will more than likely soon become a staple beer in this household.

This was the second beer I brewed and it came out great. I decided not to bottle and go straight to a keg setup because I had an old freezer that worked great as a kegerator. I did the extract brew and added bitter orange for the last 15 minutes of boil time. I let it sit 12 days in the primary and then 2-weeks in the secondary. I debuted it at my birthday party the second week of april and the 5-gallon batch minus my test glasses (of course!!!) didn't make it through the night and everyone loved it. Made me proud. I fermented at 70 degrees and the flavor was spot on. Will definitely add this one back into my 3-keg rotation but have an oatmeal stout, and honey hefe in the fermentors and a kolsch in the keg.

**ALL GRAIN ** RECOMEND RICE HULLS!!! I got the kit and it was not what the recipe was listed as. I got 4.5lb Ger Pils & 4.5lb Red Wheat... Fine, still a good grain bill in my book. I use a false bottom in a yellow 5gal igloo cooler for Mash and it would not run off at all and I wound up doing a batch (still hitting OG) I'm a huge fan of Wyest Weihenstephan 3068 so have to recommend going with that. I have ran the partial twice before and highly recommend this brew.

Fermented at 62 degrees. Fantastic results, similar to European hefes. Definitely gonna brew this kit again.

Brewed this a few weeks ago and had the first taste last night at a graduation party. Very smooth, very easy to drink. Mine came up a bit weaker than I'm used to (screwup on my part during sparging) and the banana notes were stronger than I'd hoped (fermented a bit warm) but all in all, this turned out to be a great beer and will soon become a staple brew.

This was my first brew, I used the extract kit. The kit was easy to brew, everything went by the recipie like clockwork. The temperature during fermentation was in the high 60's to low 70's but I still got banana esters. Bottle conditioning took 5 weeks before the beer was drinkable. After that it went fast and was best fresh. This was a good place to start, but after brewing several other kits I have found other offerings from AHS that are much more appealing to my palate.

I brewed this for my brother, because Hefeweizens aren't my favorite, but I really like this one. Fermented at about 68F and it gave it the perfect hint of clove, with that earthy aroma. After a week chilled it tasted delicious, because at first it tasted quite weak to me. I prefer this to American Hefeweizens. I felt like I should have let it ferment longer than a week, because it was still churning slowly when I moved it to the secondary. If I do this one again, I will leave it in the primary for 10 days at least.
