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



I used a 50/50 wheat/malt xtract for the base with 1 quart of grade A Vermont maple syrup. (Vermont = #1 syrup) I kept the flavor/aroma hops low so that the flavor of the syrup would shine through.


  • 6 lbs malt/wheat extract
  • 1 qt. VT grade A maple syrup
  • .5 oz Nothern Brewers hops 60m = 9.8 IBU
  • 1oz H'Taur hops 40m = 4.0 IBU
  • Wyeast 1056 chico, SN, Amer ale yeast
