Like the traditional weizenbeers of Southern Germany, our Weizenbeer is formulated with 60% wheat malt for a unique soft flavor and outstanding head retention. The Hallertau hopping rate is low, balancing the sweetness of the malt without masking the soft wheat flavor. To make our Weizenbeer completely authentic, we include a blend of two liquid yeasts - a traditional wheat beer yeast for the slightly wild, clove-like character of wheat beer blended with a mild ale yeast to temper the stronger wheat yeast-produced flavors. Alcohol: 3.9%, IBU's 28.
Includes 6 lbs. of our blended wheat malt extract, Hallertau hops, 125 ml of liquid wheat beer yeast, and corn sugar for carbonation. Makes 5 gallons with a starting gravity of 1.039. Ease of Brewing: Beginner
