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.

Absolutely fantastic!
This is such a fantastic beer. If unfiltered wheat is your thing, this is probably one of the best wheat beers you will drink.I picked this up with my first beer kit, and I loved it so much that I now order larger quantities of the same ingredients.A few friends have started drinking it before it was done bottle conditioning (just after a couple of days) and while they said it was flat, they loved the flavor.About the hops - I am not a fan of hoppy beers, and I was debating adding less than the recommended amount. DON'T! Follow the recipe -- it turns out fantastic.

Excellent place to start
This is my first gallon to ever brew - and of course I think it tastes great! Seriously - it tastes like an American wheat beer should - it's cloudy (as it should be), nice head - nice flavor - I'm happy - in fact more than happy. Already thinking about making 5 gallons. Kit is very straightforward and brew day is a snap.

Great beer!
My wife gave me the kit for Christmas to get me into home brewing. I bottled it last Sunday and decided that I should try it at one week in the bottle to check progress. Chilled it down and pored it into a glass. I try to always pour so I don't get a big foamy head. This still produced about an inch and the carbonation after one week in the bottle was great. Beer tasted really good. I will give it another week before I try another. I will be brewing this many times. I left the batch in the fermenter for two weeks even though it appeared that fermentation had ended at about day 7. This beer is a real confidence booster.

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.

Simple wheat beer.
Being from Kansas, I've tasted a few wheat beers. This beer is so simple to brew a caveman could do it. Nice flavor, crisp taste, pretty clear for only primary fermentation.

I added the last hop addition at 40 minutes instead of at the very end (45 minutes) and it tasted phenomenal! It tasted super crisp - perfect for the spring/summer cusp

Great recipe!
The 1 gallon version is great, the 5 gallon version tastes nothing like this one. Maybe due to different hops and extract

Does this kit come with priming sugar?
A shopper on Mar 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it has priming tablets that you drip in each bottle when you fill them
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.
