Wheat Beer Beer Kit
Style: German Wheat Beer
German wheat beer is light and crisp, and has less hop character than American wheat beer. The predominant flavor of German wheat beers comes from the use of special yeast, which produces fruity-esters to a greater or lesser degree. These fruity esters can make the beer taste like someone spiced it with banana, clove, and nutmeg - but these flavors all derive from the yeast, no fruit or spice is used. Higher fermentation temperatures of 75-80 degrees will increase ester production in almost any yeast, while lower temperatures 65-70 degrees will minimize ester production.
All our Beer Kits come in a variety of Formulations with two yeast styles and enough ingredients to make 5 Gallons. You can choose from Malt Extract with Steeping Grains, Partial Mash, and All-Grain. You also can choose between Dry and Liquid Yeast. We recommend purchasing an ice pack for liquid yeast purchases that will be shipped.
