American Wheat Beer All Grain Beer Recipe Kit
Enjoy this American wheat beer for its medium hopping and neutral, oh-so-drinkable finish; this is one spritzy, refreshing, warm-weather crowd-pleaser.
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 hefeweizens, though, American wheat beers have a bit more hop character and are fermented with a milder-tasting yeast.
We packed all of that into a beer recipe kit built from the freshest ingredients. The result is a wheat with a wonderfully spicy, noble hop aroma and a satisfyingly clean, neutral finish -- a gregarious All-American beer brewed for sharing.
Very Impressive - First Time Fermenter
This was my first home brew and I was very impressed with the over-all flavor of this beer. I am hooked now, there is no going back to commercial beer! I will definitely buy this kit again, it turned out great.
Excellent - Garagebrewer
Great summer wheat. Everyone loves it. No one would guess it's a home brew! Finished first keg and they wanted to know when I could make more!

Maybe it was my fining(clarity ferm), or the yeast (us-05) but it wasn’t as strong and distinct as I was hoping for. Still a very good beer, but I like a little more flavor.
So I made this before in 8-9 days (to be safe) and it tasted like a wheat should. Recently I did it again and used my new Tilt to realize I could pull it after 7 days. Yikes! It tasted like a WCIPA (and I HATE IPAs - nothing "ale" about them). Anywho, after much back and forth with NB and HB forums I realized I probably just pulled it too early. So take the "1 week primary" liberally and I suggest waiting AT LEAST 8 days (if not more) before you transfer to bottles (or in my case a keg). Cheers!
This was a fast brew and is a good hot summer day beer. Relatively low abv so it’s nice for pounding a couple after working out in the yard.
Brewed this a few weeks ago for a friend. Would be pretty basic as the recipe comes, but I added some Citra as a hopstand addition and fermented with Omega’s Voss Kveik strain. Nice spritzy citrus flavor. Perfect light summer beer.
Took the base kit and added a few tangerine peels at 5min. After fermenting I thawed out 2lbs of frozen tangerines and added for a few days. As expected it got pretty tart. I think it was better w/o fruit addition but after a month the tartness mellowed out and is very drinkable. Would try again with different fruit.
