- Product 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 hefeweizen beer 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!

- 3.9 / 5.028 ReviewsCan't wait!Ordered the kit, together with the dark Bavarian wheat beer kit. One grain set crushed, one not. Hops, yeast, everything I Order came within a few days nicely packaged. Time to brew again after a nearly 20 year break. So far all impressed with the service of NB!December 23, 2017Purchased
2 months agoOne of my favoritesThis is one of my favorite beers in about 80 batches. I used WYeast 3068 and bottled after 2.5 weeks in primary. The yeast smelled awful the first week, but the beer tastes great now - about 3 weeks after bottling. Some have said their beer was boring or bland, but I find this to be a great summer beer. My FG was a little high - 1.016 as I tried a protein rest with BIAB and while my ABV ended up being less than 4%, I don't care - the beer tastes great!May 15, 2017Purchased
1 year agoNothing like the 1 gallon batch... wouldn't recommend...I just had to try it, won't try again .March 3, 2017Purchased
1 year agoundecidedI've brewed this beer 3 times from extract and it is excellent. this is my first Hefeweisen all grain batch (second AG total) so learned a lot. been in primary for 10 days hit the OG and FG perfectly, but seems like it's a little light in color and tasted a little bland, compared to the extract kit. not sure if I messed something up or what... I guess time will tell. Overall, NB has awesome recipes and have had very good success so far....June 2, 2016FantasticI'm particularly into German beers, and this is a fantastic hef kit. Pitched Wyeast 3068 1L starter at mid 50s, fermented at 64 for two weeks, then bottled for two more. The banana esters are there, but nicely subdued. Last time I did this, it was during a heat wave and it fermented at more like 72... The banana dominated everything. It's all about the process.March 28, 2016White banana beerGreat kit hit the target OG. Taste testing while bottling it has plenty of banana and clove flavor looks perfect.November 11, 2015My first All GrainThanks to NB for another good kit. This was my first All Grain. Did a BOIB with it. Came out nicely. Hit the IG right on the mark. Instructions were clear and concise. Will be going with them again for future brews.October 10, 2015My first dumped beerI'm in my third year of all grain brewing. I hit all my numbers and fermented on the low side of the white labs yeast. I forced carb for three week in the keezer. It finished carbing so I took two growlers to the beach while on vacation. I spit it out. First time ever for any of my homebrews Tasted very bland, no yeast and not a hint of wheat. Came home tried another pint, it's a dumper. Don't know why I'm very clean I brew in the kitchen never had any infections or anything. Five gallons down the drain very disappointed. Oh well I have room for the Oktoberfest now. Cheers.August 15, 2015Must have done something wrongMy results were in line with a few others here in terms of color and body- lighter than I expected. I didn't bother to measure the OG, tap water ph, or test for starch conversion so I don't have the data to see where I went wrong. I read that wheat malt is ph pickier than others- maybe that was it. Live and learn. That said, after 3 weeks in the keg, the flavor has really picked up and the alcohol is close to where it should be. I'll try this batch again before I fully judge.January 4, 2014Best beer I've brewed, will be a regularI brewed this a few batches in to AG and it has been one of my best batches yet. Used the Weihenstephan yeast and fermented around 70, maybe as high as 72. Bit of a sulfur taste early on in the bottle, but after 3-4 weeks there was a nice banana flavor with a bit of clove and it is easily my favorite hefeweizens. Everyone at work loved it, will definitely be brewing againOctober 7, 2013
- Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 3 answersDoes the single infusion create results as good as the multiple step mash?BEST ANSWER: I make this about 2 - 3 times every year. It is usually the first and last brewed of my season. I mostly making this as a 3 - step decoction. It takes time but I love the time I put into the mash. As you know it a fast fermenting brew and enjoyed green. So all the better to savor the effort in the brew house. When pushed for time I make it with multiple infusion and batch sparge. It is a great beverage. Here's a link to Instagram ... but northern Brewer won't allow me to share with you check it out there @Hampshirebrewer
