Product details

Its name means "dark wheat," and that 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.

favorite beer in Bavaria is Dunkelweizen- Maybe use a different yeast

The Dunkelweizen I thought was about perfect in terms of the grain selection, I think it was the yeast that really let me down. In Germany, my favorite beer in Bavaria is Dunkelweizen, it's a bit heavier than the hefeweizen, but not quite as much of a burping beer (less yeast in the pour, is my guess there).
But, one of the strongest charastics is the banana esters you get from the yeast, which were completely missing from using the dry yeast that was the most efficient option in terms of shipping. All I can say is if you're going to do this style of beer, doing it without those main flavor hints, it seems pointless, what I ended up with was basically a dark ale.
The other issue I has was, dang this is a foamy beer! Even with a very slow pour down the side of a Wiezen glass, you'll get half a glass of foam, and you still have 2/3rds of the bottle to pour.

Dunkel wheat

This is a solid wheat beer. I think it would have been even better if the 3.5 lbs of Pilsner malt were replaced with dark Munich malt. The malt character seems a little light. But it looks the part.
