I made this kit twice and it came out fantastic both times. The first time I made it, I didnít have a hydrometer and there seemed to be a lot of activity in the airlock after a week so I left it another 4 days before transferring to the secondary and secondary for another 10 days and it came out great. I kegged it and force carbed it at 13 psi at 37F for a week. It seemed to be a little flat so I cranked it up to 16 psi. By the next week, it was really foamy. There seems to be controversy over the carbonation level for a hefe. I found a post somewhere from a Paulaner rep that the US hefe is carbonated to 5,4 g/l which converts to 2.7 volumes of CO2. The style guides recommend much higher. The second time, I kept it at 13 psi and gave it a couple more days to carb and it had good carbonation and wasnít a foamy mess. I didnít bottle either time so canít comment on bottling.
Definitely a great brew, three weeks primary and 5 weeks bottle conditioned, no need for an alcohol boost. Definitely my favorite from ahs i would recommend anyone try this especially if they havent tried a weizen. Go liquid yeast and give a little time no dissatisfaction on this end
As mentioned in my previous review when this was the 1st home brew I ever tried (and it came out perfect), I did order and make it again. The second time I added fresh lemongrass and Kafir lime leaves for a Thai twist. Came out wonderful again. See, I have tasted this fresh out of a tank in Germany and when Paulaner finally makes it to our shores in the US, it's no longer fresh and alive like where it was born. With this recipe it can be born here in the states and this kit has my highest regards. It's a very accurate clone which is stable, easy to brew and provides a strong palate for additives as I did with the lemongrass. Everyone that drank it loved it, went well with Thai food and it got drank in a hurry.
I did the all grain version and used yeast nutrient and dry yeast. Holy moly the fermentation was fast and vigorous! Use a blowoff hose because when I checked it 24 hours into the primary, my fermentation chamber looked like an episode of CSI. This was a quick one too. It was 8 days from boil to keg. I great party beer too.
Great taste! Perfect clone. I did not get enough carbonation with the priming sugar. Next batch I am going to use Coopers or Munton's carbonation drops to get exact carbonation with each bottle.
