    5 stars as usual!
    Review by Paulon 23/04/2017
    This stuff doesn't last long in my house and everyone who tries it likes it regardless of their normal tastes.
    I do agree to keep the carbonation up by slightly increasing the priming sugar, this keeps the carbonation expected from wheat beer. I'm not one for too accurate measures but a heaped teaspoon per litre works for me.
    You can vary the yeast and I will keep doing so but still finding Mangrove Jacks gives plenty of banana and clove flavours, I also find that ideal temp is around 24 degrees for this beer (it brings out those Esther's really well).

    Brilliant beer, economical instructions.
    Review by Jeremyon 14/03/2017
    This brew has been converting hardened english ale drinkers. It is second of the three different brews I have tried and the most popular. The instructions are a little basic, as a newbie I did feel slightly on my own but muddled through and have just ordered my third batch. I replace the suggested yeast with WLP300 - not because I know it's better but because a friend recommended trying it and it definitely works for me. The beer is slightly sweet, very little bitterness and rich in mouthfeel. Give the bottle a swirl halfway through pouring to wake up the sediment - this beer is meant to be cloudy but it absolutely does not have that horrendous over-yeasted flavour that homebrewing in my youth produced! It may only say 4.7p/c though I think it is a little stronger. Here we call the brew Menage Artois. Highly recommended.

    Great taste but I will add more priming sugar in future
    Review by Thomason 07/03/2017
    First time using a BrewUK extract kit: a gift from my wife. Found this easy and enjoyable to make and the flavour is excellent. I followed Paul's advice on the list of reviews of this item used the Mangrove Jack Bavarian Weiss yeast and the fermentation was fast at 20 degrees; may try this at higher temperature in future to bring out more banana flavours, not due to dissatisfaction with this brew but to compare for future reference. At this time of year though was easier to keep temperature at a consistent 20 (still high as compared most brews) than inconsistent 25+ degrees.

    Two things that would help: as a first timer on wheat, I could have done with advice as to whether to siphon some or all of the sediment into my pressure barrel to increase the cloudiness of the final result (still not sure on this: anyone know?!). Secondly, I found the level of carbonation to be too low for a wheat beer: having checked with a priming calculator, 150g (rather than 67g) would have been more appropriate for a wheat beer at temperature it was kegged. This may be caution to prevent bottle bombs, but am brewing with a dark BrewUK extract beer which recommends the same level of sugar so it could just be standard BrewUK advice.

    Smoky variant
    Review by Paulon 12/02/2017
    I really am a fan of wheat beer and have used this kit many times. This time around I used some Bavarian Mandarin hops and smoked malt added to the recipe and it was a really nice variation. Took a few weeks for the flavours to refine but worth the wait.

    Keeps on top of list
    Review by Paulon 16/10/2016
    This is a firm favourite and another batch done and dusted (not quite consumed yet though!). This time I used the Mangrove Jack Bavarian Weiss yeast and I can recommend this as it delivers the classic flavour - possibly better than Saf yeast. It isn't given on the options for the kit so you need to delete the yeast option and pick it separately if you want to use it.

    Stunning weiss!
    Review by Adolfoon 13/09/2016
    Great kit for a perfect weissbier. Very easy to brew, without complicated timing or hopping stages. I brewed it with all the three suggested yeasts and I recommend the WhiteLabs WLP300: gives full of banana flavors and very good fermentation. Keeps well for many months.

    Definitely a house favourite
    Review by Paulon 04/09/2016
    Always a favourite and after visiting Bavaria and Austria again this summer I can confirm that these kits take some beating! It's hard to beat Franziskaner or Paulaner but my wife reckons it's up there with them and better than many of the others we have tried.
    Some accolade and will keep doing this.
    I will try all of the available yeast options eventually but the standard dried Saf WB is very reliable.

    Best weiss yet
    Review by Jeremyon 08/08/2016
    I am very new to this and have only used Cooper's tins until now. I opened the 1st bottle a day early... This is by far the most grown up brew I have made. I can taste hops and banana, no sure yet about clove though. There is a slight bitter note at the finish - and I am not a fan of english ale at all but this is really nice, it just seems to add a bit of complexity. Let's see what another week of conditioning does. I used WLP300 liquid yeast and didn't get the madness that others are reporting but I may be brewing too hot - I pitched at the top end (ice bath next time!) and I can't get my office down below about 24C. I am going to buy a hop bag for the boiling as staring the result was almost impossible. I will definitely be doing this again, highly recommended - it is a lovely beer. 14 days in the FV and 14 (ahem - 13) days in the bottle.

    Excellent - really good
    Review by Davidon 28/06/2016
    I had bought the White labs Heff yeast to go with this - the first time I have used a specific yeast. I followed the instructions for composition, sticking with the yeast malt. I have a straining bag I used for the hops which made it much easier to work with. The yeast was very active, in my cool cellar (about 16 degrees) it was pushing the lid up off the bucket on the first day, but then settled down. A few days to settle in a keg after primary fermentation and then it was bottled. The aroma is fantastic. As a refreshing summer beer it is definitely the best I have brewed and my colleagues can't get enough of it.. Highly reccommended.

    Best Weissbier I have tasted
    Review by Bermondsey Brewsteron 29/05/2016
    Wow. After two weeks of bottle conditioning this beer was just perfect: it was beautifully effervescent, scented with an exotic fruitiness that hung over the fluffy head and each sip had a satisfying wheaten finish - initial worries that it wouldn't have enough body to it were completely unfounded. When a simple, quick extract beer tastes this good, why bother with mashing grains? This was quite simply the best Weissbier I have ever tasted. Unless you live next door to a brewery in Bavaria, you will never get hold of fresher, more fragrant weissbier. It's going to become the house brew here in Bermondsey.

    Went down a storm
    Review by Davidon 24/05/2016
    Really enjoyed this beer. Easy to make extract kit, I paid a little extra for liquid yeast difficult to say if this made a difference v dried yeast, but it turned out a really nice weissbier with typical banana and clove flavours. Left a few bottles in the garage for a few months, the yeast settled out leaving a "Krystal" style wheat beer which was nice too.

    Another good batch with a slight twist....
    Review by Paulon 24/01/2016
    I did this batch with additional chrystal malt to see if it would do something like a "dunkel" version. It was OK but I'll need to play around with it a little more unless someone at BrewUK can come up with a dunkel extract pack (please!).

    Good .... but not the best
    Review by Homeyon 11/01/2016
    Whilst this Hef tasted OK, its not anywhere near as good as a shop bought Hef such as Paulaner or Erdinger. Whilst im fairly new to brewing, im fairly confident that i brewed this in the correct manner and everything was sanitised and cleaned OK but i wasnt completely satisfied with the result. It tasted slightly 'watery' with not much fizz so that may just be down to my lack of experience in brewing.
    A couple of recomendations though:
    1) Primary fermentation was very bubbly and messy. Luckily i used a blow off tube into a big bottle of water but still the foam all spilled out over the top of the bottle in the fermentor. I would recommend not to use an airlock.
    2) I used 70g of sugar and i would recommend using a bit more as my beer was a little flat.

    Review by PhilWon 09/12/2015
    Second time I have brewed this and got a third in the fermenter right now. The boil is straight forward and the liquid yeast gets to work almost immediately. Being so fresh it blows most commercial bottles out of the water. Would highly recommend. A+

    Never brewed a wheat beer before, but this went according to plan and sadly those who I allowed to try it wanted refills! so I had to say they'd had the last of it. The beer was so good it brought out the worst in me.

    A seriously good beer, will be brewing this on a regular basis.

    Still a good bet
    Review by Paulon 01/11/2015
    This is my 4th batch of this and it's still good. I vary the beers I brew but do come back to this from time to time. This time I fancied a change so tried to adapt this kit to do a"dunkel" version by adding some crystal malt into the process. Probably not enough as it did,'t quite come out dark enough but its still a good beer.

    My first attempt at an extract pack and it couldn't have trurned out better. Got off to a vigorous start and achieved final SG in less than a week. Tasted delicious when young and cloudy. Still very drinkable after it cleared. Poured well with a good head. I will buyt this again.

    simple to make, great to drink
    Review by fuddled foxon 28/06/2015
    Brewed this with the dry WB-06 yeast.

    I spilt the pack in half and brewed each half a couple of weeks apart so that I could drink them as fresh as possible. Gave this 2 weeks in the fermenter then about a week in the bottle to carb before drinking. It tastes good as soon as its carbed but does improve after another week in the bottle.
    This is the equal if not better than the standard weissbiers your get in the supermarket (franziskener etc.), simple to make and quick to mature.

    Genius recipe
    Review by William Gardneron 07/05/2015
    This came out SO much better than I thought it may, just like the real thing you can buy in a shop!

    Lovley lemony aroma to the cloudy pint, and then a beautiful yeasty, wheaty malt flavour, and then finishes with spicy and citrussy hops.

    If you like your Weissbier then you will not be disappointed as this recipe is bang on.

    I used the WYeast 3068.

    A Great Tasting Wheat Beer
    Review by S Jon 22/02/2015
    This was my first extract brew and I couldn't be happier with the results. Very easy to brew and seemingly forgiving of less than ideal temperatures — I both pitched and fermented at the top end of the recommended temps. A truly tasty and satisfying glass that had I used the liquid yeast may have been even better. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys wheat beer.

    Staple Beer
    Review by Simboon 17/02/2015
    This beer takes me right back to my year out in Hamburg.

    Very similar to Erdinger hefe-weizen this is one of my staple beers... lost count of how many times I've made it now. Usually I keg my beers but this one really is made for the bottle conditioning as it doesn't matter about stirring up the yeast sediment in the bottle before drinking.

    That said while it's a great beer to drink early (another bonus) if you can leave it for a month or so it will clear and become similar to a weizen-kristall.

    Always good to have a few bottles tucked away for when your keg starts sputtering :-)

    Great brew and my wife loves it too!
    Review by Paulon 19/01/2015
    I've done this kit with the basic dried yeast and Weihenstephan Wyeyeast, both are good but the Weihenstephan does give a better range of those classic wheat beer notes and more complex elements. Having said that even with the dried yeast this is a very easy to drink wheat beer. My wife came back from Austria last summer with a taste for wheat beer and loved this which was a great way to get back into brewing after many years off!
    Well done, this will be a regular brew!

    Great Weissbier Kit
    Review by Ushon 13/01/2015
    For my first brew I was amazed at the results. General opinion was 'almost as good as a real Bavarian Hefeweizen'. I got a very strong banana flavour which I read as being due to high fermentation temp of 22-24C. Well it was christmas and the heating was on max for the oldies.... Will do this kit again and ferment a bit cooler to see if I get a more balanced flavour profile. As others have said this is a good kit if you need quick beer! 1 week conditioning was just about enough. I used the weihenstephan liquid yeast option.

    Review by Bad Paddon 14/11/2014
    After discovering Paulaner Hefe-Weizen in Germany this summer I decided to try and make something similar, this kit is a very close analog. Simpler than some of the other extract kits to brew it has conditioned well in the bottle, to the point that my friends think it's every bit as good as the beer we drank in Germany. The White Labs yeast gets off to a roaring start, foaming through the airlock which I removed in the end for the first few days. The only thing I would change is to up the recommended sugar dose in the bottling stage as the carbonation level is not as high as I would like.

    Great little kit
    Review by Paulon 04/10/2014
    I haven't done any homebrewing in about 30 years and back then this type of kit was a bit specialist. I had no problems with this kit at all (although I would note that using the liquid yeast pack does result in VERY vigorous start). My utility room was at around 22 degrees during the brew and cooling the wort down to 24 to pitch the yeast took a while to begin with. All that said, everything went to plan, I used minikegs (which again weren't really available years ago) and I've got to say the results are great. My wife loves wheat beer and this one certainly hit the spot. I'm going to try a different yeast for my next brew which is on order now. In the meantime the Road to Amarillo kit is bubbling away in the background so I'm now really looking forward to that too.
    Great job Brew UK, you've got a new dedicated customer!
    PS just note the review starts don't tell you whether you're selecting 1 or 5 but if it's a 1 I meant it to be 5!

    Review by PhilWon 05/06/2014
    First extract brew having only used Coopers and Wilko's kits in the past. Bit nervous using liquid yeast for the first time but the smack pack was simple to activate and bulging within a few hours. Kit instructions were great and starting gravity exactly as it should be. Began fermenting within two hours of pitching yeast! Thought I'd be OK brewing 19l in a 25l fermenter but after 12 hours the beer was trying to climb out! Had to install a blow off tube and would recommend fitting one from the start. Tried to keep the temperature at around 18c and it fermented out within a week. Another week in the bucket before bottling. Followed the instructions for priming - 115g - and it's spot on for me. Two weeks of conditioning left a bitter after taste but another week to ten days has now produced a superb beer. Great combination of banana and spice. As good as anything commercial i've drunk. Having read wheat beer should be fresh you can't get better than this. Will be making it a regular brew. As other posters have said, would recommend using one of the liquid yeasts to get the right flavour.

    Brilliant
    Review by Mileson 03/06/2014
    I'm down to the last three litres of this beer. It was good fun to brew as it literally exploded out of the fermentation vessel after the first night! I bought the White Labs yeast which I would definitely recommened as it's responsible for a lot of the flavour in the beer, so I don't think you'd want something cheap and nasty.

    It cleared out quite well in the PET bottles, so make sure you give them a gentle shake and chill well before drinking. I would definitely do this one again!

    Cheers BrewUk.

    Cracker!
    Review by Wavingdaiseyon 26/10/2013
    Not a huge fan generally of wheat beers, but I needed to knock out a quick brew and as this is best drunk young, I gave it a go. I have to say it's better than I thought it would be! Slightly sweet wheat taste but the hops really come through and this brew (surprised as there didn't seem like a lot) has appealed to lager and bitter drinkers alike! I am drinking my last bottle now (end of october-2 months old) and would say it's a great summer beer rather than a winter beer but don't let that stop you, light the fire or crank up the heating and it will be perfect! Enjoyed this so much so I have brewed a Citra six as I think this may be more my 'bag' with regard to the hops. Not tried yet but have high high hopes! Summery - Great beer, quick to brew, quick to drink and for the price its spot on! Enjoy

    Lovely beer - Don't worry if it bubbles over
    Review by Kristianon 20/08/2013
    I bought this kit a few weeks ago & started brewing straight away. I used the more expensive Hefeweizen yeast.

    I left it overnight (fortunately with a towel underneath it) and by the morning it had bubbled up through the airlock and all down the side of the fermenting vessel. I lost about a litre of liquid but, once I had left it for 6-7 hours to cool down, it was fine.

    I replaced the airlock with a fresh one & continued as normal. Now in the bottle & tasting delicious. Great weissbier.

    Will do it again, but may keep the FV in the bath for the first day or 2!!

    Excellent kit - highly recommended
    Review by JudeSunFloweron 16/06/2013
    I thought I'd give this one a go as a bit of an experiment... Very pleased with the results. And absolute doddle to brew and ready very quickly. Tastes as good as anything you'd find in the shops after only two weeks in the bottle.

    A delicious refreshing drink.

    I have been enjoying (a bit too much) of mine chilled from the fridge. Perfect for a warm summer day.

    Strongly recommended. Worth spending a bit more on the yeast in my opinion.

    Very tasty Weissbier
    Review by JD brewingon 30/04/2013
    Brewed a keg of this for a german-themed Winter BBQ. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all guests and warmed us all significantly!

    We used the more expensive yeast and I think it was worth it (without knowing what the other one is like of course). Had it after about 3 weeks in the keg and it had really nice banana flavours. Being a big fan of a Franziskaner, I have to say it gave it a run for its money.

    Good to have such a tasty beer in such a short time - ideal for parties!

    Nice Weissbier
    Review by Lightningon 24/04/2013
    Originally brewed for my wife as she like Hoegaarden. I brewed half of the kit as it recommends drinking young.

    We tried a bottle a week early and it had the right taste but left a slight bitter aftertaste.
    Another week later and it tasted lovely and smooth. The Mrs did a blind taste test against Hoegaarden, and although slightly different taste and a bit darker, she couldn't tell which was which.

    Just thinking now I should probably have done the whole batch.

    Thanks Brewuk

    Incredible
    Review by Rossinoiseon 16/12/2012
    This is by far the nicest home brew i have done. The taste is like a cross between hoegaarden, bluemoon and erdinger.
    These do happen to be 3 of my favorite beers.
    Will 100% be doing this again, highly recommended.
