An American-style wheat beer with a pound of pure honey. Because the honey ferments completely, it does not make the beer sweet – instead, it creates a medium-light body with a dry, crisp finish and delicate floral note. Our Honey Weizen has a lighter wheat flavor than our other wheat beers, and is sparingly hopped and clean with a slightly tart edge, a bit reminiscent of our Kolsch kit. Highly recommended as a summertime guzzler.

4.5 / 5.04 ReviewsGreat BeerThis beer's description as offered by NB is exactly correct. The beer does not have a strong wheat or hoppy flavor. The HW is very easy to drink and would best be served in the summer. I would suggest this beer to my guests who prefer a more mellow drinking experience. I liked this beer and I will probably make it again.January 21, 2012Great Honey WeizenThis was one of my first all grain kits. Managed to hit all times, temps, and had a blast making it. To bad the wife tried it and it disappeared quickly. I may have had two of them, the wife had the rest. Mind you that was a quick 5 gallons gone. Highly recommend this one as it was easy to do and great to drink. I have made 4 or 5 more after the initial.January 4, 2011Nice Summer BeerVery nice summer beer. Can't keep my wife away from it and she is not a beer drinker. Added the honey after the boil and that seemed to retain a little honey flavor. Well done recipeJune 19, 2015almost awesome!First time making a NB kit, turned out to be great with a few tweaks. i hit all the temps, did everything in the instructions. However, it fermented down to 1.002. so it was very dry and absolutely no honey flavor. So during kegging time, i boiled 2 lbs of honey with about a quart of water, and tossed it into the keg with the beer. after about 2-3 days of carbonation, it's exactly where i wanted it and hasn't started refermenting at all (i keep my kegs around 38)June 5, 2012
Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 1 answerSince this recipe uses malted wheat, does it require a protein rest when mashing?BEST ANSWER: It should not be needed, as this is a highly modified malted grain. It would be a good idea to add a 1/2 lb or a pound of rice hulls, to keep the grist looser, as the wheat lacks the hulls of a barley grain.
