The award-winning recipe from Brewing Classic Styles by Jamil Zainasheff and John Palmer, prepared and assembled in a ready to brew ingredient kit!
This easy-drinking ale is a perfect thirst quencher for a hot afternoon, or anytime. American wheat beer differs from German wheat beer by having a clean, low ester malt character, and a bit more hop bitterness and aroma to balance it. It is as clean and refreshing as a Kolsch, but at the same time drier and more robust. This is my favorite session beer for an afternoon of yard work; before, during, and after.
American Wheat has a clean crisp malt character, low esters and a smooth hop character. It is a great beer for quenching your thirst, being not too dry, not too light, and not too heavy. This recipe is one of my personal favorites for a session beer.
