An extract made with 60% German White Wheat and 40% German Moravian two-row barley. This malt extract, based on the malt base of the wheat beers of Bavarian, is ideal for brewing authentic German wheat beer. Like all our extracts, our German Weizenmalt is condensed at low temperatures, to retain the soft flavor and golden color only wheat malt can provide.
Approximate SRM color value of 6 pounds of extract dissolved into 5 gallons of water before boiling: 6

Haven’t brewed a lot of wheat beers, but wanted to knock out a sessionable summer ale and this fit nicely with some hops and yeast I had on hand. Good price and GREAT customer service from Williams Brewing. Cheers!
Great Base Malt
I brewed a Hefe with this malt using Zainasheff's Hefeweizen recipe in Brewing Classic Styles and it turned out great. My fermentation temp was a little high (~67 F), but I'm pleased with the final product. I didn't have any problems hitting my target FG.
Best Hefeweizen Yet
I'm a huge hefeweizen fan and have now tried brewing several different batches using extracts, partial, and all-grain methods. For my most recent batch I went very simple, I used this 8lbs of extract plus 1.75oz of German noble hops and WYEAST 3068 and it was hands down the best hefe I've made to date. So good, my wife and I kept this brew to ourselves! Definitely plan to use this extract again!
I ordered the 32lb pack of this stuff and it is just great! I've made 2 awesome batches so far and still have some for 1 more batch.
