The kit was good except would like to have all the extract in one container instead of two. The instructions a pretty clear and easy to follow. Nice neat package that showed up on time for brew day, made a fantastic beer!
Followed directions, used Safbrew WB06 Wheat Beer - Dry Yeast. Brewed at 75 degrees. Bottled. Excellent representation of the style. Hefeweizen is best when it is fresh and this reminds me of my time in Bavaria.
I usually brew Pale Ale's but decided to try out the bavarian hefe as a gift to my dad for his B-Day and could not have been more thrilled with the result of how the beer came out. The taste, even as an extract, was just as good as any other hefe that is on the shelves currently in store. I'll definitely be ordering my ingredients through AHS from now on as they were prompt to send my order out to me and it arrived the same week I purchased. Lastly, the ingredients were fresh and of high quality. I'll be back AHS!
Excellent kit! Had everything in it. Instructions are easy to follow. 1st beer Iíve made where I hit the SG perfectly!
Very simple to brew for a beginner. But also just as good as any other homebrew of a seasoned brewer.
