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



This is my most recent favorite all-grain recipe.

Brown/Golden ale. Light, refreshing and a nice aroma of chocolate malt for interest. Could be made with extracts by using 1 can each of pale malt and wheat extract syrup (or powder). Easy drinking beer.


  • 3 pounds, pale malt
  • 3 pounds, wheat malt
  • 4 ounces, medium crystal (~40L)
  • 1 ounce, chocolate malt
  • 1/3 ounce, Chinook Pellets for 45 minutes (4 HBU)
  • 1/2 ounce, Cascade Pellets for 20 (2.5 HBU)
  • 1/2 ounce, Tettnanger Pellets for 10 minutes
  • Whitbread ale yeast
