Light, crisp, and refreshing with strong banana and clove notes. This versatile beer is a good base for German or American-style wheat beers or fruit beers. Change up the yeast to match the style of beer you desire. Took a 3rd place at the Indiana State Fair Brewers Cup.

Easy Wheat Extract Kit

  • Description
  • Q and A

Liquid wheat extract with a little pale malt and carapils for body provide a versatile base beer that is light, crisp, and refreshing. For a German style wheat beer with the signature banana/clove flavors, use Wyeast 3068 Weihenstephan or 3056 Bavarian wheat yeasts. For a more neutral American wheat beer flavor, try Wyeast 1010 American Wheat yeast. This beer works well as the base for fruit beers. To compliment the fruit, try a yeast that provides a bit of sweetness in the finish, such as Wyeast 1272 American Ale II or Wyeast 1187 Ringwood Ale.

Excellent Hefeweizen

This recipe was my first attempt at home brewing. The recipe was easy to follow and overall I'd say both the brew day and bottling day were very enjoyable. I initially tried the beer 5 days after bottling. There was plenty of carbonation but the flavor was a bit lacking for my taste. After 10 or so days in bottle, the flavor has gone from so-so to excellent. I didn't bother taking gravity readings, so I have no idea what the ABV is. Either way, the beer is delicious. I'd highly recommend this recipe to anyone who is a fan of wheat beer!

Good Wheat

This easy wheat is very good. I would recommend against the wyeast (for some reason I can taste this weird flavor in them). The wheat is great. This is a good beer and you are definitely going to enjoy it. The only recommendation I can make is to get a third Bavarian wheat and add it just like the other two. It is really going to bring out the wheat in the beer that is otherwise lacking. All this being said, I found the brew greatly enjoyable. This is one people will come over and drink and find it to be one hell of a good beer. I promise if you brew the beer you are going to enjoy it and all your friends are going to love it.
