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!

Smooth with subtle hints of Bavaria
Having spent several weeks in southern Germany, I can honestly say this brew brought me right back to the stone cellar pubs of Rock City (Nuremberg for the uninitiated). Pairs well with anything served with sauerkraut.

Really good beer. When I unboxed it, I thought something was missing, there was only malt extract and hops. But that is all you need, I ended being pressed for time so this was perfect. Great beer, give it a try.
Really good clean refreshing beer. Dead easy to make too.

Very happy with this brew, Probably my favorite so far.

Only complaint i would have is why is not sold as a duel pack on Amazon like some of the others. Could pair it with the American wheat (which i have yet to try) or one of the Cream ales

This is only my second attempt at brewing and I just popped this into the primary 3 Days ago.Tthis size and method using extracts is very easy to follow and prepare for newbies. This isnâ??t my favorite style but Iâ??m very excited to taste the finished product. Hopefully my wife doesnâ??t disown me for brewing a bad Hef.

No real complaints
This is a pretty good beer. I enjoyed the taste, and using the fizz drops made the priming very simple. Overall, a very pleasant Hefe

The only complaint I had, which is not necessarily a knock, is that the brewing process was utterly simple. Bring water to boil, mix in the DME, mix in the hop pellets, done. I felt like I was making soup for dinner more than I was brewing beer. This is not a huge deal, as this also meant I had very little trouble with the beer.

So, overall a good tasting beer, very easy to brew if you are a beginner. Just a little "boring" if you are more experienced.

Excellent summer Hefe!!
Probably the best tasting Hefeweizen I've had... and I've enjoyed numerous German Hefe's! Great nose too!

After two weeks, I racked from primary to secondary for another 2 weeks and then bottled for two weeks before sampling first bottle July 1, 2017.

Will definitely buy this kit again! Many thanx NB!!!

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.

does this kit come with yeast?
Juan V on Nov 5, 2017
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?
Paul K on Oct 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. This is an recipe kit and comes with all the ingredients you would need to make the beer. It does not come with any equipment.
What is the longest time that this 1 gallon batch can stay in the primary? Because of personal reasons I neglected to bottle this batch and has been in the 1 gallon jug for a month. should I bottle it or toss it?
A shopper on Feb 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You should be fine. It might have some more pronounced flavor from the hops and yeast, but it shouldn't make the Hefe undrinkable. I think I went a week or two beyond what the directions suggested, and it had a slightly more pronounced "bubblegum-y" flavor from the yeast, but that was it.

The only thing I think you might have an issue with is the number of viable yeast cells for carbonating the beer once you bottle it. Try it and check a bottle after a week or two. If it's not carbonated you may need to add a small pinch more yeast to each bottle and then re-cap and let them sit for another week or so. I had that issue with the bourbon barrel porter that I let sit in secondary for too long. But a pinch of a neutral yeast strain and an extra week fixed the problem.
What would be the OG and the FG for this beer?
A shopper on Jan 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: As per my brewing records, when I brewed this a year ago, the OG was 1.044.
