Tallgrass Halcyon Unfiltered Wheat Pro Series All Grain Beer Recipe Kit
Tallgrass originally brewed Halcyon as their first summer seasonal, but since all the Halcyon fans (a.k.a: kiteheads) asked so nicely, they now brew this magical brew year round.
Halcyon starts with raw Kansas wheat in the grain bill to give it a nice edge, but what really makes it shine is the hops - Tallgrass uses the method "hop bursting" late in the brewing process to give Halcyon its palate of tropical fruit flavors & aromas with a bright and refreshing taste like the best days of summer.
Since 2007, Tallgrass Brewing Co. has been crafting award-winning ales at the edge of the Flint Hills in Manhattan, Kansas. In addition to the quality of their beer, they're known for their packaging, sense of humor, and an adventurous, experimental spirit that's true to their homebrewing roots. Tallgrass chose Northern Brewer to help bring their recipes to homebrewers everywhere through our Pro Series line of beer kits - cheers!
A note on yeast: Tallgrass uses White Labs WLP007 Dry English Ale; with Tallgrass' blessing, we suggest Wyeast 1098 as the default option so customers (especially mail order customers) can more easily evaluate viability before brewing.

One of my first with all grain and first kegging, this beer came out great! Not as clear as I would have liked but it is a wheat after all and who cares it tastes amazing. For living down the street from Tallgrass brewery for years, this beer definitely lives up to their quality! Will be brewing this again next summer!
The beer is good and easy to make and drink. My only knock on this was that I failed to inventory the shipment prior to brew day and the ordered yeast was missing from both kits I ordered. Needless to say it was frustrating and had to make trip to town to complete the kits. Defeated purpose of ordering online.
Wanted to brew a wheat beer for a group of my wife's friends. Turned out good and clear and very crushable. Would have liked it to have been a little more hazy.
I've brewed this beer a number of times and each time it comes out great. One of my all time favorites!!
This is a clean tasting refreshing beer. Very well balanced. Not too much bitterness and not too much Citra. One of my summer favorites.
