- Product Details
- 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.

- 4.5 / 5.070 ReviewsGreat KitI brewed this kit but strayed from the instructions a little by doing a full-volume boil (5.5 gallons instead of 3 gallons plus top-up water) and by adding about a half-pound of additional honey at flame-out. My OG came out around 1052 and I really liked the flavor and feel. It was also well-received by everyone I shared with.January 4, 2018Purchased
3 months agoHoney Weizen BlueberryTry using this recipe with 3lbs sugar @ (30 min), and 1oz US Goldings hops (5 min). Add 3 large peeled and diced potatoes (rinsed with HOT water) to the primary bucket. Add your wort. Leave in primary for 2 weeks and in the secondary for 3 weeks, then bottle it. Wait 2 to 4 weeks after bottling. Then try it!!! (I added 4oz blueberry extract on bottling day to give it a nice bluberry after taste.)
OG= 1.078 (NB OG 1.048) FG= 1.006 @2 (primary) and 3 weeks (secondary), ABV 9.45%+
(ABV will actually be higher because of the potato starch)October 8, 2017Purchased
6 months agoso smoothI let my brother pick a beer for me to brew him for his birthday and this is what he chose and i'm glad he did! We each got a case of this and went on family vacation to the beach in Destin, Fl. What a great beach beer. Smooth as silk, the honey is just a nice afternote that helps it go down but you barely taste it. This was an easy drinker and one of my favorites so far.August 31, 2017Purchased
6 months agoHoney Wezen Extract KitThis kit works nicely, although fermentation takes longer with the honey. I add a pound of Bavarian Wheat Dry Malt Extract very nice if you let it age for 2-3 weeksApril 9, 2017Purchased
10 months agoOctober 19, 2016Honey Weizen Extract KitThis kit is still brewing in a secondary fermenter but I can tell it’s going to be fantastic. I added a tablespoon of pumpkin spice and a teaspoon of cinnamon since fall is approaching. It stayed in the primary fermenter for 3 weeks because my new secondary fermenter did not arrive in the mail until yesterday. I tasted it yesterday and it was actually tasting very nice. It had a good pumpkin spice flavor from the spice I added but I still could get a very light honey flavor coming from it too. I’m going to let it clarify for a couple of weeks and then move to the bottle for a couple more weeks! I can’t wait to try the finished product!August 24, 2016Great summer Beer!Purchased this beer based on description in catalog. Couldn't be happier. It is a nice light, refreshing, mildly hazy summer beer. I really enjoy it after putting one in the freezer for a while to really chill it, especially after working outside in the sun and heat. Will definitely make this one again in time for next summer.August 24, 2016Do not pass this one up!One of the best extract kits I've made to date! Well balanced and very tasty. Mine came out 5.7% abv. I only put in the secondary for 1 week and it clarified pretty good. Thanks again NB!June 29, 2016May 13, 2016Second time with this kit.Very easy kit to brew. This my second time buying this kit; first time I did a partial boil, second time I did a full boil. I'll be doing a taste test in a few weeks!April 30, 2016
- Browse 7 questions Browse 7 questions and 15 answersWhat should the color of the beer be? It looks to be a golden color in the picture but mine turned out to be a darker almost amber ale color.BEST ANSWER: It should be a lighter color, although a darker more amber color is possible and does not indicate a poor outcome. Darker coloring will be apparent when viewing the beer in a fermentor due to the volume of beer. However, darker coloring can also be caused by caramelization of the extract during boil. If extract is heated for too long or at too high of a temperature, this will cause darker beer. To avoid this, make sure to remove the kettle from heat while adding extract and stir thoroughly. Extract can also be added later in the boil to reduce caramelization for a lighter beer.Do I need additional items or does it come with everything I need?BEST ANSWER: No Northern Brewer gives you everything you need to made a five gallon batch. I have brewed 60 of their kits over the last 3 years, all good! BTW I gave a cataloge to a friend and told him to pick two and this is one of them and he really liked the Honey Weizen. :)What type of honey does the kit come with?BEST ANSWER: It includes the light amber blend, seen here:
http://www.midwestsupplies.com/light-amber-honey.htmlMatthew, thanks for the response. I am wondering if the directions give the correct measure of sugar, or if I need to let condition in a warmer environment?BEST ANSWER: I had excellent results following the recipe with the sugar as it came packaged. It was my first time brewing this kit and it came our great!What am I doing wrong?... I followed the directions, been patient, but my brew doesn't seem to be conditioning well. It's going on the 3rd week in the bottle yet has very low carbonation.BEST ANSWER: I only carbonated for two weeks and made the mistake of putting all in fridge at same time. However it carbonated ok but I would have preferred better. Next batch I added extra oz or two of priming sugar but be careful not to over do it. Beer got a lot better tasting as time went on. Best to have patients !!I brewed this kit according to the directions and am now 72 hours into primary fermentation. The bubbles are small and like “fizz” (airlock looks more like a small glass of sprite). I was expecting more actual bubbles. 5 gallons in an Ale Pail. Should I be concerned?I want to use this kit and try kettle-souring it. Any tips?
