Honey Weizen Extract Kit

SKU: U1280

48 Review(s)
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.

Decent brew, but not what I wanted.... Review by krystal

Easy brew and very simple to make. It wasn't the honey taste I wanted. Several people liked it, but I will keep looking for the honey beer I hope to find. (Posted on 3/16/14)

Awesome Possum Review by Drew
Rating
This was my first brew and I fermented for 4 weeks and will be bottling for at least 2 weeks. 5 days into the bottle conditioning I pulled a beer for sampling and within 10 minutes I pulled 6 more samples ;). My parents came into town and I had my dad try a glass. He is mainly a bud light drinker so I was worried about it. He sampled my brew and another Wheat brew. He thought my sample was the one from the liquor store and said it was very drinkable though it took him a few sips to get used to it. (Posted on 2/11/14)
Great Simple Beer Review by Jason

This one turned out really well. It was a very simple and straight forward kit (only the second kit I have used). It has a good honey flavor and came out very clear. (Posted on 12/22/13)
Great phone support Review by Mike
Rating
This review is a bit premature since I have not bottled the beer yet. But I wanted to comment on the phone support. I have already forgotten the name, but I spoke with a brewer who advised a good kit to use with blackberries I had picked. I heated 8 cups of berries and 1 cup of sugar to 170 degrees for about 15 minutes and added to the secondary. Moved to a third carboy today. Smelled super - can't wait to bottle. (Posted on 9/28/13)
Easy to brew and enjoyable! Review by Carlson

This is an excellent summer brew, and I really enjoyed it. I am picky and reserve my 5 star reviews for the top 1-2 beers I have brewed, but this is great especially for family parties that might not be full of hop heads! (Posted on 8/21/13)
Easy Brew Review by Timothy

This is my second brew and I can say I'm very happy with it. I let the bottles condition for a week and tried it added a ornage slice and it was amazing. I'm going to let it sit for another week as I've heard that honey ages better with time. If you like weizens I would definalty go for this brew great summer beer. My only problem was my brew come out a bit darker than the picture. (Posted on 7/26/13)
wanting a little more Review by Aaron
Rating
This is probably the only NB kit I have not liked. It is not bad but just leaves you wanting a little more. If you are going for something this style I would recommend their Kolsch kit or tweaking their American Wheat kit. If I ever did this kit again I would use a Kolsch yeast and give it a cold aging or add fruit. (Posted on 7/4/13)
tasty Review by Ben
Rating
Followed recipe except for adding two pounds of blackberries to the secondary. 1.040, final at 1.010. Tried one a weeks after bottling still needed more time. At three weeks it was amazing just a hint of blackberry. Going to brew again when the apricots are ripe. (Posted on 3/10/13)
Good but Not Honey Weiss Review by G Squared
Rating
It's a good beer - but after 1 week I was forced to rack to the secondary due to the massive amount of blow off. I let it sit in the secondary for 2 weeks - added a package of unsweetened lemonade to the mix and it had some real good flavor. Adding more honey to the mix only adds to the time needed for primary and also added to the blow off issue. (Posted on 2/22/13)
