BEER KIT DUNKELWEIZEN a Dark Amber Oktoberfest Wheat Beer (Weissbier) Ingredient Kit from Brewer’s Best


Dunkelweizen is a traditional southern German wheat beer similar to Hefeweizen only darker. (Dunkel means “dark”)  Uses Munich and Chocolate malts to give it a light copper to mahogany brown color and a deliciously complex maltiness.  A low balancing bitterness is provided by a small amount of noble hops.  A German wheat yeast strain produces the classic bubble gum fruitiness and strong to moderate phenolic spiciness characteristic of this style.

The Brewer’s Best Dunkelweizen Ingredient Kit makes 5 gallons of a coppery dark wheat beer.  Matures fast and will be ready quickly.  You will steep Munich and Chocolate malts to create a darker, maltier southern German style with a nice creamy mouthfeel. It has an amber-brown color as compared to the Hefe, medium body, a slightly sweet, bready flavor.  You will enjoy the fluffy creamy fullness. A German wheat yeast strain produces the classic fruitiness and phenolic spiciness characteristic of this style.  Think “Bubble Gum”.  Sometimes consumed “mit hefe”, cloudy from yeast sediment which should be roused before drinking.  This is thought to provide healthy benefits.
