Honey Weizen Extract Kit

SKU: U1280

50 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.

Very good Review by Sean
Rating
Brewed this up and it's a great beer, liked by both my beer snob and macrobrew-from-a-can drinking family members and friends.

If you're going to use the amount of corn sugar for priming solution listed by the recipe, then I'd go with 3 weeks carbonation instead of the 2 weeks like the recipe says. When I bottled this, I carbonated half the bottles for 2 weeks and the other half for 3, and the 2 week bottles are flat within a minute or two of being poured while the 3 week bottles are bubbling right up until the last sip.

AWESOME Review by Christopher

I did this for 4 weeks in the primary, then bottled. I changed things a little by boiling an extra pound of honey in with the priming sugar before bottling. This is among the best Honey Weizens I have ever had, and it is certainly a GREAT summer beer. I drink it with a half slice of orange to really bring out the flavor! Super popular, super easy, and AWESOME! Already ordered 2 more kits and an extra bucket to ferment in because it has been so popular with friends and family, and summer is just getting started!

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
Rating
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)
