This Hefeweizen recipe is perfect for summer drinking (or anytime!), and will be ready to drink a lot quicker than other beers. Ours is based off of a classic recipe that found it's fame in Bavaria for it's emphasis on wheat. It's a a truly refreshing fruity pale beer that can be enjoyed anytime by hella cool beer lovers anywhere.
We recommend using a specialty yeast strain to have that authentic wheat clove and banana nose, and bready malt flavor like you'll find in traditional German wheat beers. The yeast strain and wheat will give you the classic cloudy characteristics of the traditional weizen beers as well.
So, do you want to be the cool kid, or the hella cool kid? This brew's for you!

Hailing from Germany, the Hefeweizen style is an unfiltered wheat beer with a sweet, malty flavor, usually a golden color with a subdued hop profile and increased carbonation levels. The increased carbonation helps give balance to the sweet malty flavor of the beer.

I’ve been looking for a simple Hefeweizen recipe that has that authentic taste. This does just that. It’s delicious.
Ordered the Hefeweizen which arrived fast and on time. A couple of hours after I ordered it I got an email saying it was shipped and was given a tracking number so I could follow my shipment from them all the way to me. It arrived packaged well and in great shape. I can't wait to order more from them. I plan on brewing this next weekend and I'm looking forward to it.
Love this Beer. I'm not usually a Wheat Beer fan. This was very good. So good, I ordered a second kit when my first keg emptied. Great Beer on tap.
Easy, hopping is just right. True to style. As always, I recommend at least 4 weeks cold aging. Prost!
As always, the folks at Homebrewsupply were great and sent over a great recipe mix!
First all extract kit I have done and the results were great. Fermented and kegged, I am very happy. I will be buying more products from Home Brew Supply. Thank You!!
