Dunkelweizen – 5 Gallon Recipe Kit


Dunkelweizen extract recipe kit 5 gallons



Similar to a Hefeweizen, these southern German wheat beers are brewed as darker versions (Dunkel means “dark”) with deliciously complex malts and a low balancing bitterness. Most are brown and murky from the yeast. The usual clove and fruity (banana) characters will be present, some may even taste like banana bread.
