American Wheat Beer All-Grain Kit

$0.00

SKU# U1264

Flat Rate Shipping only $7.99 only from Northern Brewer
A American wheat beer with medium hopping and a fairly clean, neutral finish - a spritzy, refreshing warm-weather crowd-pleaser. Unlike German Hefe Weizen, American wheat beers have a bit more hop character and are fermented with a milder-tasting yeast, resulting in a more clean, neutral finish.


We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary ice packs with all liquid yeasts, but it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.

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:
