Blackberry Wheat

It takes a lot of ingredients to make a fruit-style wheat beer right, but the results are worth it!  After all, you can't expect much if you just throw some blackberry flavoring into a plain wheat beer. Our blackberry wheat recipe kit starts with a full strength wheat beer, which is designed to be very mild so it won't overpower the delicate fruit flavor. Then we add 3 pounds of seedless blackberry puree. The puree is seedless and sterile, which means you don't have to spend time removing tiny seeds and crushing fruit. The natural fruit sugar in the pureed blackberry has the bonus side effect of boosting the alcohol content! To round out the fruit profile, the recipe also includes 4 ounces of natural blackberry flavoring. At bottling time, add the blackberry flavoring until the beer is perfect for your taste.  Also included with this recipe is a packet of pectic enzyme, which is necessary to remove the haze caused by real fruit.

Wheat Beer (American)

American wheat beer has a light, crisp, refreshing flavor.  They're fermented with yeast strains which produces little or no fruity-ester flavors, giving them a "cleaner" flavor compared to most German or Belgian wheat beers. We use American wheat malt extract instead of a British extract - British extracts are a bit cheaper but usually darker and lower in wheat content. This recipe uses 65% wheat extract - usually more above 50% = more wheat character.

Style: American Wheat beer
ABV: 5.0%
Color: Golden

Wheat Beer (German)

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.

Witbier

Wit beer is a very pale beer that's served cloudy.  This recipe has a moderately light body and a low level of flavor and aroma hops.  It's a light and delicate wheat beer made with a special yeast culture that produces flavors which are tart and slightly phenolic. This recipe is also spiced with coriander and curacao orange peel in addition to noble hops. Witbier is different from other wheat beers not only because of the spices, but also due to the use of raw, unmalted wheat. 

Style: Belgian-Style Wit
ABV: 5.7%
Color: Golden
