Product Description

The Wetpak Summer Wheat, is a beer designed with the German Hefeweizen style in mind. The inclusion of orange peel and coriander combined with this specialty yeast gives the heady and spicy aroma and flavour typical to this style of beer. 

Wetpak Kits are formulated as extract brewing kits. They require a little more effort but the end result is definitely worth it. To make a Wetpak beer you will require:

  • Access to a stove or hot plate (one of those little butane gas powered camp stoves will work well).
  • A pot or saucepan that is large enough to hold 6 litres of liquid.
  • A spoon for stirring.
  • A sieve, colandar lined with butter muslin or a coffee plunger.
  • 1 hour of your time to monitor your brew while it simmers on the stove.

The Summer Wheat kit comes with:

  • 3kg of malt extract with the bittering hops already added.
  • a foil bag containing finishing hops.
  • a bag of finishing grain.
  • a bag of orange peel.
  • a bag or coriander.
  • Instructions (To view the detailed instructions that come with the kit, click "HERE".)
  • A sachet of  Fermentis' WB06 specialty wheat yeast so brew this one between 12°C to 25°C (optimal range is 15°C to 20°C)..

Tips:  

  • To achieve more clove flavours, brew below 22°C.
  • To achieve more banana flavours, brew above 23°C

*** Note: Upon opening the can, you may see what looks like candied sugar or a green crust. Don't panic, it's just the fresh hops within the can that have come to the surface of the malt. They're supposed to be there! ***

*** Makes 20 Litres ***

  1. Remade adding 500g honey at end of mash

    Posted by Paul on 15th Sep 2014

    I did a previous review of this beer and as it had an intense bitter flavour at first I remade it with the Country Brewer's suggestion of adding 500g honey. It made a huge difference to the flavour and it is an excellent winter beer (wheat beer and malty black beers are my winter favourite). I'll definately be doing this again next winter.


  2. Full bodied bitter wheat beer

    Posted by Paul on 28th Apr 2014

    This was my first home brew and it worked out well. I was a little worried about the hops going into the fermenter without a bag so put the beer through a fine strainer before going into the keg as all the hops didn't go to the bottom. Very minute amount of sediment. Came out as a cloudy beer but as it is a wheat beer i didn't filter. It was a delicious beer with a bitter taste ( which I don't mind) and an excellent beer for the winter months. I will definately do this one again. The work of boiling the grain and adding the orange and coriander added so much to the taste.
