Beer & Wine Recipes

This is a simple but great tasting Hefeweizen recipe. Don’t let the simplicity fool you, some of the best beers are the easiest to brew. It’s important to use the liquid yeast when doing wheat beers or they will not ferment true to style and will be missing the complex “clove” and “banana”spice flavors. Since wheat beers are usually hazy, we don’t use Irish Moss in the boil.
7 - lbs Wheat Malt
1 oz Hallertauer Hops (bittering) 1 hour (4–5 HBU)
1/2 oz Hallertauer Hops (finishing) last 3 minutes
White Labs WLP 300 Hefeweizen Yeast Or White Labs WLP 380 German Hefe Yeast or safale wb-06 dry wheat yeast
Bring Water to a boil and add 7 lbs malt to brew pot. Stir while adding and when it comes back to a boil add 1 oz Hallertauer hops and boil for 55 minutes. Then add ½ oz of Hallertauer hops and boil 3 more minutes. Cool to 75F and pitch yeast.
