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 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!

Great summer beer!
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.

Fairly easy brew, to be honest looked exactly like the picture when I was done. If you like hefe's then you'll be very pleased with this beer.

Temp hit 97 during ferment but........
Wow, just wow. Brewed this up and on the first night my carboy heater stuck and brought the temp up to 97 degrees. I thought for sure it was a goner. I figured I would let it finish and poor it out when I tasted it. I just racked it and got a good taste before carb and much to my surprise it tasted pretty dang good. So I will let it carb for a week or so and try one chilled. I really expected some nasty off flavors but so far nothing. Man that yeast is tolerant. If it turns out as good add it tasted I think you have a perfect beginner kit here. Will come back with my finished results.

Great tasting Hef
Brewed the kit per the instructions and it came out great. I get that banana, wheaty aroma that I love in this style. Easy drinking and a fantastic summer beer. Would buy again.

True Bavarian Taste!
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.

Very Good Results
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.

Most excellent
I enjoyed making this brew. The kit contained everything I needed and was easy to follow the recipe. My friends say my results were very tastey. They want me to make more!

Great To Make My Own
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.

It has been 3 days since I had my brew day. I am not seeing many bubbles in my bubble glass. When I started the fermentation process my beer was at 72 degrees for 2 days. I have now drop the temperature to around 64. Will my brew be Okay?
M A on Feb 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Matthew,

This is actually pretty normal. There's a vigorous initial phase, and then a slower clean-up phase, and then the airlock can stop altogether. The foam will appear during the initial phase of fermentation, when the yeast is rapidly consuming the simple sugars. This is when the air lock goes crazy. Once that's taken care of, the yeast will work on the long-chain sugars, which forces it to slow down a bit, and the foam usually subsides. So I'd guess that if fermentation probably isn't quite finished, but it mostly done. It does sounds like it's exactly on track though. If you have a hydrometer, you could take a gravity reading, and this would let you know exactly how far along the process is.

64 is within the ideal temp range for the Danstar Munich yeast, so that shouldn't be an issue. However, cooler temps will often cause the yeast to go slower. This isn't a problem, and it can be intentional with most yeasts, since slower work is often better for flavor.

Let me know if there's anything else I can help with!


Does this kit only come with ingredients?
