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 “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.
This is a partial mash beer kit - see our Partial Mash Walkthrough for details.

- 5.0 / 5.020 ReviewsMost excellentMost excellent, Tall Grass should have never quit making this delariping brewAugust 15, 2016TallgrassAwesome beer, highly recommend.May 31, 2016Yum!I added a pound of clover honey to the boil. After two weeks in the primary, I transferred to a secondary (only because I needed the primary for another brew). I had planned to bottle it the next week, but there was still (very slow) visible fermentation, so I gave it two weeks in the secondary. It dropped another point after the two weeks and it tasted absolutely delicious when I bottled it. Really looking forward to it being ready to drink.May 3, 2016Very Nice beer!!!Wonderful yellow color, crisp taste, very little bitter after taste, fantastic beer!!March 28, 2016Great BrewTallgrass Halcyon is a great beer. Nice flavor and ends with just the right bitterness for a wheat beer. I will be making several batches of this for the summer.. Never had the original, but if if it's like this kit I should be very popular.March 22, 2016Great beerThis will be the 4th time I've made halcyon wheat. Definetly a favorite.February 21, 2016Tallgrass Halcyon Wheat Variation excellent results.I brewed this recipe as directed, but with the addition of fresh pomegranate, and lemon rind. Just finished carbonating it, and it's outstanding. Interesting, in the secondary fermenter it clarified without any additions. Great color clean flavor, lends itself to subtle flavor additions. I will order this one often.January 8, 2016Comparison with the real thingI just returned from Manhattan Kansas where I visited the Tallgrass Tap House. I have brewed seven batches of Tallgrass Halcyon and it is one of my favorite brews. I ordered the real thing at the Tallgrass Tap House and I was amazed at how close the Northern Brewer's partial mash kit matched the actual product. The color and taste were a match. If you ever get near Manhattan Kansas visit the Tallgrass Tap House the bartenders, staff and customers are very friendly and you can taste the full range of Tallgrass brews.July 3, 2015Thank You TallGrass Brewing!My daughter, who doesn't really like beer, loves this. Halcyon is my new favorite beer. I brewed this with the grain in a bag. I found it very easy to brew. I transferred from the primary to secondary after 4 days. I bottled after 10 days in the secondary. It took about 4 weeks in the bottle to develop perfect carbonation. I've since brewed one batch "all grain" and everyone at a local jam session raved about it. I just ordered a third kit!March 14, 2015Very Nice Wheat Beer - More Like a Wheat IPAI can see why there are so many favorable reviews of this kit. I'm drinking it four weeks from brewing and really like what I'm tasting. The burst of hops is definitely a feature of this one which, as an IPA fanatic, I hold as a big plus. I look forward to this one mellowing in the keg a bit over the next several weeks -- if it lasts that long!February 1, 2015
- Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 6 answersBrewing in Florida - cool room temp is about 77 - will that work?BEST ANSWER: I think I'd look at the new Omega yeasts that can work in these high temps, without causing taste issues in the beer. Maybe try the "Tropical IPA" yeast, that one is a good fermenter from 75 to 85 degrees! Those kind of temps would not make good beer with most regular yeasts, but this one can handle the high temps, and still make good-tasting beer. Have a good one!Step 10 says to add more water if necessary to achieve your normal boil volume. Normal boil volume? I’m pretty new at this so not sure what normal is for a partial mash kit. 2.5 gallons?
