Beer Style: A crisp, refreshing ale focused on wheat rather than barley. Our version uses domestic wheat malt and German Pilsener malt, resulting in an easy drinking ale that is lightly bready & citrusy.


Dominant Ingredients and Characteristics: White Wheat brings full mouthfeel while German Pilsener Malt adds malty sweetness with honey notes.  The yeast adds a light tartness and a dry finish.

  • This kit contains all the ingredients you'll need to make five gallons of beer. You will be following a two stage fermentation system using a plastic bucket as a primary fermentor to contain the beer until heavy foaming ceases. The beer is then siphoned into a secondary fermentor, a five gallon carboy where the beer stays until fermentation is complete.

    Be sure you have all the equipment below before getting started. We carry everything you'll need to get brewing.
