This authentic German-style wheat beer is light colored and fruity with clove-like spicy notes. If you ferment at a warmer temperature, more banana flavor will occur. If you ferment at a lower temperature, more clove flavor will occur. You can balance the flavor if you ferment between 70-74 F degrees.

AHS Bavarian Hefeweizen (15A) - MINI MASH Homebrew Ingredient Kit
Brewed with this recipe a couple of times. Each time has turned out great.
Followed instructions but brewed two 2.5 gallon batches. Both excellent and easy to do. I did a keg it, family and friends love it. Good starter brew.
I brewed this in early December, and it was my first attempt at an all grain. It turned out kind of nasty, probably due to my own lousy technique. I'm glad I didn't dump it out though, because the funky astringiency that I had is mellowed out completely... And this is one tasty beer!
Great beer that I was able to drink about a week after the boil. Good hefeweizen flavor, I added 2 oz of zest from clementines for the last 5 minutes, which gives it a nice subtle flavor. Make sure you use a blowoff tube for primary as this was a VERY active fermentation at 74 degrees. Racked right to keg, shook it up, drinking two days later. Recommended as a quality beer in this style or as one to brew for an emergency party.
