Honey Wheat home brews
Just bottled this today and am really happy with it. I increased it to a six gallon batch and added a 1/2# of honey toward the end of the boil. Today, I split it in half, added 3 oz. of priming sugar to each half. I added 4 oz. of blueberry extract to one three gallon batch and 4oz. of Raspberry extract to the other. The flavor or each was very good, not overpowering. My wife likes fruit beer and I think she'll like these brews. These simply beer kits are great for experimenting with.

Came out good. Very light, mellow, easy to drink. Not much depth of flavor.

Great first beer kit
Great value and easy to brew for beginners. Added four packs of lemonade drink mix at bottling. First bottle was a bit too hoppy for my tastes. But after a week in the bottle and it calmed down and was great. Since these kits are easy and cheap they are perfect for experimenting. Next time I'll use cherry for a cherry wheat.

Pretty good for the price
Note I am not a wheat beer drinker but this is pretty good for the price, comparable to many more expensive wheats I have had.

Satisfactory base beer
Ok. Good to experiment with flavor additions but somewhat lacking as a base beer. Love the MS simply beers but this is my least liked.

Amazing for the price
I am enjoying every bottle. I would compare it to the best commercial wheat beers. I know I will be buying this more often. I am anxious to try the other Beer Simply Beer kits.

Amaze your friends
This is a simple to make, delicious kit. Don't forget to drop a slice of lemon into the glass. Takes me back to Resi's Beirstube on Irving Park Rd in Chicago, but a lot cheaper!

Great base kit
I added a little red wheat malt, 0.5 oz coriander and some bitter orange peel. Added Citra hops to the last 15 minutes of the boil. Bottled after 1 month. My batch ended up right at 4%, very bitter at first, but has since mellowed out about 3 weeks in the bottle making a slightly exotic-tasting hoppy wheat ale. This is a great kit to tweak with if you are still unsure about making your own recipes. Keep making these great kits Midwest!

Great value & quality
Great base for experimenting--brewed with honey and lavender, and going to try maple next. Will buy more!

Are 12 bottles enough for a single kit or should I get more?
A shopper on Feb 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These kits make 5 gal of beer
That's 640 oz total
You can fill
10 of 64oz growlers
53 of 12oz standard beer bottles
40 of 16oz flip top grolsh type beer bottles
25 of 750cc wine bottles
29 of 22oz beer bottles

Usually it's a little less than 5gal as you always leave a bit of yeast sediment from the fermenter or secondary.

I personally keg half my batch in a small 2.5 or 3 gal stainless keg that fits in my small kegerator and bottle the other half in 16oz flip top bottles that are easy to clean and reuse and are nice to share with friends. Pulling a fresh homebrew beer from a keg after a hard day at work with perfect temp and head is a joy that few hobbies can equal.
how long does the fermation take, some kits call for 2 weeks some longer before bottling?
A shopper on Jun 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Extract kits take about 2 weeks, but don't trust time. Watch your bubbler/trap for activity. If you don't see activity for a few minutes then it's probably done. Also, you can take specific gravity reading a few days apart to see any change. Of the first reading is anywhere close to 1.010 then it's ready to bottle. Hope this helps.

I brew n 5 gal units, is that what I'm buying?
A shopper on Jan 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it's in the description as well. I just made it with an extra 1lb of honey and 2 oz citra dry hopped.
What should be the general color or SRM for this beer? During secondary fermentation transfer, I couldn't help but notice the color was a bit more amber than what I've seen depicted in the photos.
A shopper on Jan 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would say that is what I also noticed. I don't have a measurement for you, all I know is that when boiling, I added a handful of whole cascade hops to the wort and the end result with this kit was wonderful!
what malt extract is used in this kit?
A shopper on Jan 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The kit doesn't come with any grains. the malt extract that comes with it includes everything. I am sorry, but I don't remember the name on the bottle. If I get a chance, I will look to see if there's a copy of the paper at home. Otherwise, if you click on the details and instructions tab, it might say specifically what was in the kit...
What is the use-by date on the package? How long will it last in storage before I brew it? Thanks!

BEST ANSWER: I typically buy these kits 3 or 4 at a time and when I get the package, first thing I do is put the yeast packs in the fridge and the hops in the freezer. Both the yeast and the hops are said to be good for up to two years if unopened. I keep the boxes in the basement on the concrete floor, it is my understanding that as long as you keep the extract in a temp controlled area (60-70F) they should be fine for up to a year, some web sites even say 2 years. Happy Hopping!
What hops and/or flavor can I add to make this a special, tasty brew?
Max W on Jun 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I added 1lb fresh strawberries at flame out...then another lb when transferring to secondary. It wasn't overpowering. Subtle strawberry. Good kit for $20 and 2 lbs straws.
Hi, new to Brewing. Where can I find expected final gravity and abv for this beer? Can't find it anywhere in the package.
A shopper on May 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: For the kit brewed, I added 3 pounds of Amber DME and got 1.078 OG, 1.026 FG (6.7% ABV). Still had good wheat flavor, not heavy or overpowering and not "hot" (alcohol). I know that's not a direct answer to your question, but, with the amount of added extract, it correlates fairly well with the answer from Greggory G.
Does this include the yeast?
B I on May 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, theses kits include the yeast as well.
is that a 5 gal kit
J E on May 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this is a 5 gallon kit
What quantity does the kit make? Presumably 5 gallons?
J O on May 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, these are 5 gallon kits
