Bavarian Hefeweizen - 1 Gallon Small Batch Beer Recipe Kit

Details

One of the signature brews of Bavaria, Hefeweizen is a medium-bodied, effervescent ale practically exploding with yeast and wheat malt character – kind of like a liquid multigrain bread. Our kit is 100% traditional—cloudy, malty, and spicy, with a smooth mouthfeel and dense, whipped-cream head. Serve in a tall glass “mit hefe” - swirl the bottle to make sure you get all the yeast!

This is a very good recipe. It smells like a strong hops but it is smooth and no aftertaste. (Posted on 1/19/14)

This brew is bananas Review by AJ

Real good. Should brew again for summertime. Maybe some orange zest like others have mentioned. Share this with those that can tolerate having floaters in their beer... (Posted on 12/26/13)
Great To Make My Own Review by Kevin

I spent some time in Bavaria the last several years, and, like another reviewer here, fell in love with the local beers. I found only one US-brewed hefeweizen that even came close, and import beers can be hard to find, expensive and not very fresh. The initial fermentation requires a blow-off, but so far every batch of NB beer I've tried has done the same thing. Nothing wrong with enthusiastic yeast, just be prepared. At two weeks post bottling, I have to say that it's an authentic and pleasing taste. Now the trick is leaving the rest alone to age. (Posted on 11/11/13)
Meh Review by Nathan

So this was my first beer I brewed. The airlock blew off and i didn't catch it till a day later. When I finally got a taste of it, the taste was just ok. It might be due to the airlock blowing off and allowing air in, but I have had a lot of hefes and this was down on that list. I have a new one fermenting and will update later but for me, this was just ok. I brewed the American wheat and will say that tastes way better than this beer in terms of wheat beers!

Great summer beer! Review by Rob

This is by far the best Hefeweizen I've had. But beware, the yeast in this kit are very active. My primary overflowed within a couple days. As a side effect, it smelled like delicious beer! This beer pours with a 4inch head and cloudy, as it should be. (Posted on 10/25/13)
True Bavarian Taste! Review by Erik

I brewed this one as I wanted to relive the time that I spent in Germany drink the most delicious beers. I fell in love with Hefeweizen's and have yet to find one commercially made in the USA or anywhere not Germany that holds up to the ones I drank so many years ago. This beer has all the right flavor profiles and the color is spot on. The only bad thing I can say about it is that I don't have enough. I brewed a double batch of the 1 Gallon kit and with a weeks of it being ready to drink I am down to only a few left. (Posted on 10/17/13)

Absolutely amazing. This is what a hefe should be like. (Posted on 9/11/13)
Fast, easy Hefeweizen! Review by Paula
Rating
Not bad at all if you stick to the script, but I added some honey to it and it came out pretty well. Were I brewing five gallons of this, I would spring for the Wyeast 3638 or Wyeast 3068, though. I like Hefeweizen to have full banana, vanilla and clove esters and those yeast strains will produce that. (Posted on 9/1/13)
Very Good Results Review by Daniel

I do quite a few 1 gallon brews, and have tried most of the styles listed here. This kit is one of the better 1 gallon kits here on NB. It was tasty, fermented well, carbonated well. All around good brew, especially in summer. I'll make this again, and if you are looking for a good beer go ahead and get this one. (Posted on 7/17/13)
