Tallgrass Halcyon Unfiltered Wheat Pro Series Partial Mash Beer Recipe Kit
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 "hop bursting" method late in the brewing process to give Halcyon its palate of tropical fruit flavors & aromas with a bright and refreshing taste.
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.
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!
This is a partial mash beer kit - see our Partial Mash Walkthrough for details.
In addition to the equipment required for malt extract brewing (boiling kettle, primary fermenter, siphon, etc.), you will need the following to brew our partial mash kits:
- A thermometer with a range that includes 120°-170°F
- A mash kettle - a pot with a capacity of at least 4 gallons (the boiling kettle you already have can do double duty)
- A second pot or kettle with a capacity of at least 2 gallons for heating sparge water
- A large strainer or a nylon mesh bag that can hold up to 5 pounds of wet grain (used to separate the grain from the mash liquid in Step #8)

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.
I was expecting a good wheat beer with this kit, I just transferred the brew from the primary to the secondary fermentation container & pulled a sample to taste, WOW! I utilized voss Kveik yeast @92f and the orange fruity flavor was very strong, stronger than almost all of the neipa's I've bought /brewed. I would highly recomend other brewers to try this combo!
Great beer. So good I dedicated a tap on my keezer to always have it available.
I thought the end result was a little too hoppy for my taste. I liked that it was ready to drink in three weeks.
Most excellent added peach extract
My first partial mash and it was relatively easy compared to extract. Someone who’s not a beer fan tried my brew and really liked it. Very drinkable lawnmower beer. Two weeks in the primary then kegged. Another week in the keg and the flavors really came together.
