Beer Style: Weizen/Weissbier (15A)
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons



I have a delicious wheat beer coming out of the bottle right now and I thought with summer here y'all might want to give it a try. This beer is the best I've made so far and is also the first I've made with liquid yeast. Draw your own conclusions, but I know I will be using the liquid stuff from now on. The taste is hard describe; flavorful and slightly sour like a wheat beer should be, with a nice hop to it. It has a medium alcohol content.

This wheat beer was so good I'm going to make a variation of it for my next batch. It will be a raspberry wheat beer and I'll be adding about 4 pounds of berries to it.
