DetailsThis crisp American-style wheat beer is a perfect summer sipper, be it boating, mowing the lawn, or just sitting on the porch. Of course, it’s still refreshing any time of the year while doing almost anything! Clean and refreshing was what we had in mind for this Kickass recipe. It finishes clean and crisp, with minimal esters. If you’re expecting cloves and bubblegum, you’re thinking of a hefeweizen buddy. This is one Kickass American Wheat Beer.

4.5 / 5.04 ReviewsGreat Beer, My first home brew.This was my first home brew, The result was awesome! I was told by a friend to make this again and again.April 18, 2017It was quite good. IIt was quite good. I would brew it again. Nice white head of foam and light, refreshing flavor. Perfect beer for a summer evening.July 29, 2016HIghly recommend: Great intro to all grain brewing.This was my 1st homebrew so did not know what to expect. I am sure I made a few mistakes but the result was excellent. Shared with friends, everyone liked it and wanted more. Golden yellow, creamy head and slight citrusy finish - very drinkable. I have since made 6 more batches of different styles by other providers with great results but will be making this one again. I like the simplicity of their instructions however they are missing a few technical details (e.g. gravity readings / reducing tannins / tastings throughout the process) that I think make the process more interesting. This is a great intro to all grain brewing.November 26, 2016

Browse 4 questions Browse 4 questions and 11 answersIs the Kickass American Wheat available in a 5 gallon kit?BEST ANSWER: No, it's not, unfortunately. It would be a super easy one to put together, though! 6.75 lbs of 2-row, 3.75 lbs of White Wheat, 2.5 oz of Tettnang hops...Does this make one gallon? I need to buy the jug to go with it and want to be sure I get the right size!BEST ANSWER: Yes, this is a 1 gallon batch, I would get the 1 gallon Big Mouth bubbler over the 1 gallon jug for these 1 gallon recipes. The Big Mouth bubblers are easier to transfer in and out of and very easy to clean. Worth the difference in price, I've used both and will never use a 1 gallon jug again.My kit says ferment on a kitchen counter. I noticed the temperature in my kitchen was only 59 degrees. Is that too cool and will it cause a problem with my beer?BEST ANSWER: Often when your beer is fermenting, the temperature in the fermenter is higher than the temperature in the surrounding environment. Typically my room temperature is 69 degrees. Lower temperatures may cause the fermentation process to take a bit longer. The best thing to do it allow it to ferment according to the instructions. Take the OG and the FG. If you have not hit your projected number, let it sit another week or two. Your beer should be just fine.What is the expected OG and FG for this brew?
