- An American-style wheat beer with a pound of pure honey. Because the honey ferments completely, it does not make the beer sweet – instead, it creates a medium-light body with a dry, crisp finish and delicate floral note. Our Honey Weizen has a lighter wheat flavor than our other wheat beers, and is sparingly hopped and clean with a slightly tart edge, a bit reminiscent of our Kolsch kit. Highly recommended as a summertime guzzler.

- 4.6 / 5.05 ReviewsVery Good ServiceOrdered this item, received an email informing me that the yeast I had ordered was out of stock. I was given 3 replacement options. After I chose one and sent off email, I received a reply in 15 minutes letting me know my yeast was on its way. I received it next day. This type of customer service , and low cost shipping, have secured Northern a permanent customer.January 18, 2018Purchased
1 month agoNice Summer BeerVery nice summer beer. Can't keep my wife away from it and she is not a beer drinker. Added the honey after the boil and that seemed to retain a little honey flavor. Well done recipeJune 19, 2015almost awesome!First time making a NB kit, turned out to be great with a few tweaks. i hit all the temps, did everything in the instructions. However, it fermented down to 1.002. so it was very dry and absolutely no honey flavor. So during kegging time, i boiled 2 lbs of honey with about a quart of water, and tossed it into the keg with the beer. after about 2-3 days of carbonation, it's exactly where i wanted it and hasn't started refermenting at all (i keep my kegs around 38)June 5, 2012Great BeerThis beer's description as offered by NB is exactly correct. The beer does not have a strong wheat or hoppy flavor. The HW is very easy to drink and would best be served in the summer. I would suggest this beer to my guests who prefer a more mellow drinking experience. I liked this beer and I will probably make it again.January 21, 2012Great Honey WeizenThis was one of my first all grain kits. Managed to hit all times, temps, and had a blast making it. To bad the wife tried it and it disappeared quickly. I may have had two of them, the wife had the rest. Mind you that was a quick 5 gallons gone. Highly recommend this one as it was easy to do and great to drink. I have made 4 or 5 more after the initial.January 4, 2011
- Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 2 answersWould you suggest adding orange peels?BEST ANSWER: I don't see why not. Last time I made this, I added strawberries and it came out great.Since this recipe uses malted wheat, does it require a protein rest when mashing?BEST ANSWER: It should not be needed, as this is a highly modified malted grain. It would be a good idea to add a 1/2 lb or a pound of rice hulls, to keep the grist looser, as the wheat lacks the hulls of a barley grain.
