Product Details
Like their German cousins, American wheat beers feature large proportions of malted wheat in the grain bill and are naturally a bit cloudy in appearance. Unlike German Hefe Weizen, though, American wheat beers have a bit more hop character and are fermented with a milder-tasting yeast, resulting in a more clean, neutral finish. With a spicy noble hop aroma and tart finish, it's a spritzy, refreshing crowd-pleaser.

For the American wheat beer it says advanced additional equipment needed, what equipment?
Tom B on May 8, 2015
Best Answer: This is for all of our all-grain recipes. You will need a mash/lauter tun, a larger boil kettle to do full volume boils, as well as a hot liquor tank. We do have the same recipe in extract as well:

What additional equipment is needed?
Tom B on May 8, 2015
Best Answer: Since you are getting all of your fermentables from the grain itself without the addition of extracts the all-grain recipes require a mash/lauter tun, larger boil kettle to handle full volume boils, and a hot liquor tank to hold your sparge water. You can also do what is called brew in a bag: http://beersmith.com/blog/2009/04/14/brew-in-a-bag-biab-all-grain-beer-brewing/
Also, here is a good overview on the mashing and sparging process:
