Please Note: In order to better serve our customers, we are now offering our extract recipe kits with either Liquid Malt Extract (LME) or Dried Malt Extract (DME). The majority of our DME kits were converted from the LME version, which is why you may notice slight variances in the extract names and quantities on your recipe sheet.

Pretty good beer kit
I really liked this kit. Went with the LME option. I did add 8oz. DME and 8oz. brown sugar to bump it up to about 6.1%. Partial boil, 70% late malt addition and used Munich Classic yeast @ 68* to 70*. Turned out 100% great. Next time, and there will be a next time, I will try to ferment @72* to try to get a little more Banana flavor out of it unless it's cool enough to ship Wyeast 3068..maybe not. More Beer should add Munich Classic to the drop down list of yeasts, it's a great option, IMO. Keep up the great kits MB !!

Nothing too complex here just an easy drinking German wheat beer that goes down smooth.

Wow! Reminds me of Bavaria
Wow! The WL liquid yeast was slow to get started but once it kicked off I was so glad I used a blow off tube. This is the best kit yet that I have purchased from MoreBeer. Beats American pale ale, Hefeweizen, Belgian. Going to start a second batch now.

A great kit!
Nice malty kick with that familiar wheat beer taste. This kit is well balanced and expertly put together. I've ordered lots of kits from MoreBeer and never hated any of them.. this one though gets top marks from me, borderline perfect! Will be brewing this one again.

Great Dark Wheat
This was my second homebrew, and first grain-steeping. It was easy and turned out great, but I would caution the homebrewer of one thing: Use a hefeweizen-specific yeast. I used the included dry Safbrew T58 yeast, which worked fine but didn't express almost any banana-clove character, which I wanted even in a dunkelweizen. It was dark and malty and yeasty; a great beer, so I wouldn't call it a complaint, but I love my wheat beers to be big banana-clove nose bombs.

I've determined that I need to make another batch of this beer using White Labs WLP300 Hefeweizen Ale yeast, which is perhaps the perfect Bavarian wheat beer yeast.
