4.7 / 5.077 ReviewsNice!This was the 2nd kit I brewed, the first I used with the liquid Wyeast option. I was happy to see how quickly the yeast bag expanded and was ready to use. Brewing was a cinch - i even added a clementine to the boil to bring out more citrus characteristics. The fermentation was very active and the secondary provided some nice aging. Definitely not a clear beer, but a nice looking Wit! I am very happy with how this beer came out!March 13, 2013My first Midwest Kit, my favorite Midwest kit.This beer definitely tastes more like a Hoegaarden than a Blue Moon, which was a very welcome surprise. I started brewing on this kit, but have since done several of the others (Saison, IPA, Steam, Blonde), and for my personal taste, is my favorite of the bunch. It is extremely well balanced, has a nice spice to it, and is an impressive beer for friends to try if they aren't keen or aware of homebrewing. I look forward to brewing this again.May 16, 2013nice beerbrewed this back in december bottled around 3 weeks ago after spending 10 weeks in primary and secondary. during the fermentation it seemed like quite a bit of sulfur was released and gave off a nasty smell, but that when away after sitting for a few weeks with using the wyeast liquid yeast. to bump up the abv in this brew i added a pound of some homemade belgian candi. beer turned out good but could use some more time for the flavors to develop a little more it think it will be better once it spends some more time in the fridge aging. the orange and coriander were noticeable but not overpowering and complemented the style quit nicely.March 19, 2013Good flavorThis was the first kit I made and I was pleasantly surprised with how easy it was. The final outcome was good, I brought a 12 pack to a party and they disappeared fast._x000D__x000D_Personally, I would have liked a little more citrus flavor. I'm going to try this again and will probably add the zest of an orange to see if I can get more of that flavor.March 21, 2013Great beerThis is a great beer to brew if you like wheat beers. Although it comes with everything you need, it's worth the $$ to use liquid yeast instead of dry yeast, plus it comes out better if you use DME vice LME.March 24, 2013Good BeerGood Belgian wheat taste. It came out darker, for some reason , than indicated on the package but tastes fine. I went with the Wyeast activator pack and had no problems with fermentation. It started within the first 24 hrs and finished within three days. I'll brew my own version of this in the near future.April 3, 2013Great service, no complaints!!Great service, no complaints!!December 26, 2015Great Blue Moon-like BeerFor anyone who is a fan of Blue Moon's Belgian White beer, this is great!April 9, 2013Great BeerI've brewed this kit twice using the White Labs yeast and love it! I will do this one again.April 26, 2013Great BelgianThis was my second brew and I could not have been more pleased with the results. Nice color and nice head. Mine was a little more amber than what the chart describes which was good with me. The flavor was spot on for everyone that tried it including myself. An added bonus is that the yeast residue from bottling is completely drinkable without imparting any significant off flavors. I highly recommend this brew!May 30, 2013

Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 4 answersCan i brew this using your beginners brew kit?BEST ANSWER: Sure, this one is a good one to make in a "single-stage" fermentation. You'd keep in in the primary fermenter for about 14 days, then it should be safe to bottle it up. -Mike W, Midwest SuppliesWhat are the differences in the yeasts offered in the Belgian Witbier Extract Beer Kit?BEST ANSWER: It has been a while since I brewed this one, but, if I remember correctly, the only difference in the yeast types are one is a dry yeast and the other is a liquid yeast. It is possible that each will give a slightly, barely noticeable, different taste to your brew. My husband and I prefer the dry yeast, simply because it is easier to work with. I would recommend trying both, which we did with a different kit, and decide which you prefer.What the difference in the yeast selections?BEST ANSWER: I have tried both. One is dry and easily stored. The other is live. I have not tasted a difference. The dry yeast is easier to work with. If you choose the live yeast, be aware of the need to refrigerate when it arrives. Also it requires activation, so plan ahead, as takes time. I have opted to stick with dry yeast.
