Product Details
Like their German cousins, American wheat beers feature large proportions of malted wheat in the grain bill and are naturally a bit cloudy in appearance. Unlike German Hefe Weizen, though, American wheat beers have a bit more hop character and are fermented with a milder-tasting yeast, resulting in a more clean, neutral finish. With a spicy noble hop aroma and tart finish, it's a spritzy, refreshing crowd-pleaser.

First try
My family bought me a starter kit with this recipe. Tasted good after 2 weeks in the Bottle, only complaint is I followed the recipe as written and only ended with just over 6 12 ounce bottles in the end. So I will order again but will start my boil with more water.....

Color seems way off from picture
I bottle this yesterday tasted decent after 3 weeks fermenting. from day one the color was way off darker. Not sure if the ingredient that the kit was put together with had anything to do with it. Will update after 3 weeks in bottle.

My first recipe kit from Northern Brewer
This was the kit that was included with my small batch starter kit. Easy instructions, beer came out great - it's a great starting point, but also a crowd pleasing beer if you are looking to brew something you'd like to have in your refrigerator regularly, or have something accessible to serve to guests. I will definitely brew again, probably for summer. Two weeks in fermenter, two to three weeks bottle condition, enjoy.

Hi! This will be my 3rd northern brew recipie kit! My aunt had breast cancer and I want to brew her a custom! She loves wheat with raspberry (pink!!!!) how would you recommend I add fruit flavor? Extract? Berries? To what part of the brewing process?? Thanks all!
A shopper on Jun 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I used fresh raspberries and this recipe at a ratio of 1 pound of raspberries per gallon. I blanched the raspberries at 160 degrees for 15 minutes to sterilize them, put them in a wire mesh basket and let them sit in the water. Do not go too much higher than 160 or you risk a pectin haze in your beer.
I then added the berries to the bottom of my secondary and racked from the primary directly on top and let that ferment for a week.
You will end up with some berries floating and lots of debris on the bottom of the secondary. As long as you are careful, it is not an issue when moving the beer to the bottling bucket.
The beer turned out a pink color and had a great raspberry flavor to it.
what about adding honey to this to make a honey wheat beer
Ronald T. on Sep 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I haven't brewed the American wheat yet. Adding honey sounds interesting though. The amount would be the trick. The Saison came with a small amount of honey and that was fantastic. Maybe I will try a spoonful or two. Give it a shot.
I will be doing this soon. I have two choices for fermentation temperatures. Room temp 77 or wine cellar 60?
Carlos d on Jun 11, 2016

Thank you for brewing with us. The yeast in this kit has an optimum temp range of 59-75 F. Given the choice between the two temp options you listed, I would go with the wine cellar.

Hi, Ive added sweet orange peel & coriander to my recipe. how long should i bottle ferment before drinking?
M A on Oct 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You should check bottles for carbonation after 2 weeks.
does anyone know what kind of yeast this recipe uses? i'm trying to create this recipe using the NB ingredients in a larger batch (note the larger size uses willamette hops instead of cascade only), and I'm wondering if using Safale-US05 is going to be identicalor similar to the "bru yeast" packaged in this kit.
