DetailsThis crisp American-style Wheat beer is a perfect summer day refreshment while or after paddling and portaging a canoe. Of course, it's still refreshing any time of the year while doing almost anything! Clean and refreshing was all we had in mind for this recipe, which finishes crisp with minimal esters - free from German-style bubble-gum or clove flavors and aromas.
Ingredients: 5 lbs. Domestic 2-Row barley, 4 lbs. White Wheat, 1/2 lb. CaraVienne, 1/2 lb. Carapils®, 1 oz. Sterling, 1 oz. Palisade® pellet hops, priming sugar, and yeast.

4.9 / 5.018 ReviewsGood beer for watching sportsIts a fast to make lighter beer. Its a good beer to have when you want to have a few while watching a game. It's not too heavy or alcoholic and tastes good._x000D_I use a standard 2/2/2 schedule without nay problems.November 5, 2013Nice wheat beerI like wheat beers year round and don't limit them to just the summer._x000D_The kit has a nice balanced profile, not overly fragrant, and is an easy to drink beer for the evening after work. I tried both liquid and dry yeast and prefer the Hefeweizen liquid yeast.January 13, 2014Good BrewMy first all grain brew and I'm pleased with the result. Ended up having to ferment it at higher temperatures so it had some fruity flavors which mellowed out over time. Beers were excellent 3-4 weeks after bottling.June 27, 2014Easy drinking brewVery good recipe,goes down really well. I will definately brew againApril 7, 2011Excellent BeerAfter a hard day's work,was great to have a few of these in frosty mug!_x000D_Nice and light with a more enjoyable taste than a hefe._x000D_I will definately brew this again,especially to have on hand this summerApril 9, 2011Goes down easyRefreshing, light tatsing, good session beer. Nice taste.December 21, 2012Smooth and refreshingThis is the second wheat beer I've brewed. This one is a lot better than the other one. This is a very clean, crisp wheat ale. I used the Wyeast smack pack, and followed the kit recipe exactly. The mouth feel is a bit heavier than a non-wheat pale ale, which I like, and it's not bitter. This was popular with my friends.February 27, 2013Great summer beerVery good flavor and hop aroma! Great Wheat Beer for Summer.March 13, 2013Outstanding Summer BeerThis was my first summer wheat beer and i put Vintage Harvest Fruit Peach Puree in the secondary. The beer had a great kick and a mild hint of peach flavor. It went down easily and was a crowd favorite. I plan to brew this again for the upcoming summer but will try adding a different flavor for a new change.March 19, 2013Great Summer Wheat BeerI liked this recipe a lot. I am not a usually a huge fan of wheat beers but I really liked this beer. It was a great beer to drink sitting on the lake in July. It was the first all grain batch I brewed and it had a great hop flavor that I feel is not normally found in a wheat beer.March 19, 2013

Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 1 answerI have made wine kits in the past. Do I need a special brewing equipment (boiler?, etc.) to make this kitBEST ANSWER: All-Grain brewing does require some equipment to do it properly. At a minimum, you'd need a large kettle ( 8-10 gallons ) and a heat source, and a large mesh bag, and the kit could be brewed "BIAB" style. Once the brewing process is done, you could use some of the same gear you had used for wine for the fermenting and siphoning, etc. "Extract" brewing is easier for starting out, and could be done in a smaller kettle, and is where most brewers begin. If you do want to try BIAB, ( Brew-In-A-Bag ) I suggest checking out sites like BIABbrewing.com, and using the calculators there to help with the planning and brewing process. -Mike W, Midwest Supplies
