  • Dunkelweizen All-Grain Kit
Product Details
Its name means "dark wheat," and that's just what it is. An amber-colored version of a German hefeweizen, Dunkelweizen has the same spicy yeast and creamy wheat character of its pale counterpart, but with as much rich maltiness as a dark Bavarian lager. This kit produces an ale with a hazy mahogany color, medium-full body, and spicy, bready aromas and flavors.

Spot on
I've brewed this several times and have been very happy with the results each time. I have a friend who has family in Erding, Germany and has spent a good deal of time in the the town's local brewery, washing down weisswurst and brezel with liters of their weissbier and dunkelweiss. He said that the flavor of this Dunkel is "spot on". Which is a nice compliment, as I'm a big fan of Erdinger's wheat beers.

I thought this Dunkelweizen had an amazing taste and I will continue to make it as my staple brew.

banana bread in a bottle!
initially bought this kit as a base for a pumpkin ale (have had hefeweizens before and thought the clove flavors might blend well with pumpkin). I ended up just brewing the kit as is (with the Wyeast at 62 deg F) and it is amazing! smells like banana bread with a creamy head and beautiful lacing! don't forget to swirl and add the yeast with this beer!

I attempted deconcocting for the first time...turned out excellent! It has a smooth and slightly creamy texture with hints of caramel. I like it better for Oktoberfest than Oktoberfest!

Awesome go to beer
Ive made this beer twice now and used the decoction method suggested in the instructions. I realy love this beer. Its an awesome beer just to have around, very ballanced and easy on the pallate. So if you dig the whole spicey clove banana weizen chacter BUY this kit, youll love it.

NB made it right
This is in addition to my previous review since I cannot edit it. I should of waited to post a review. NB both mine and my brewing partners account and apologized for the uncrushed grain which they believe was probably the cause of our problems. This 5 stars goes for NBs excellent customer service.

Best Wheat Beer Yet
This kit came out very nice, it's as close as we've gotten to that signature Hacker Pschorr flavor. One thing we highly recommend, do at least a single decoction.It's makes a difference in wheat beers. It helps give them a crisp finish without lingering sweetness. We used the 3068 yeast and fermented warm, at around 70.In a neighborhood taste test it beat out 2 brews from Lakefront Brewing in Milwaukee hands down. -Berwyn Brewing

Liquid bread
A great balanced flavor. Anybody who doesn't like Weizen might change their mind with this recipe. I boiled 90 minutes and used 3068 yeast . Fermantation temperature was in the low 60's I'd brew this again.

Malty aroma
Combination of a brown ale and wheat beer. The color is a Carmel brown with a strong malty aroma.

Nice wheat beer
It has a unique flavor a bit on the sour side in my opinion. The clarity was just as described, maybe a bit more on the clear side than expected. I used the Wyeast and I believe that was a good choice over the Danstar. I tried some other imported Dunkelweizens and liked this one better. I gave it a 4 only because the sour overtone was not my cup of tea. Other than that is was a great beer.

what additional equipment is needed for the dunkelweisen all grain kit?
G I on Feb 24, 2016

You would need a [mashtun](http://www.northernbrewer.com/fermenters-favorites-cooler-mash-lauter-tun) to steep and strain the grains, a boil kettle with at least 8 gallons of volume, and ideally a propane burner. Let us know if you have any further questions!
