    Outstanding. Simple recipe and tastes just like the real deal. This keg was empty in record time!

    Second time I’ve brewed this and its a banger. It’s as good as (better!!) than any commercial wheat bear I’ve tried. Its quick and easy to brew (one hop addition, 60 min mash, 60 min boil) It ferments like lightening and conditions in the bottle just as quick. Brew day to drinking in 5 weeks. Fermented at a slightly higher temp (21c) second time round and got more banana flavour which I like. Also primed with plenty dextrose (225g) so got a proper fizz. Chill it right down and its perfect for the sunny weather. thsi is firmly on the fixture list from now on. Oh and its as cheap as chips.

    Would definitely brew this one again. Tastes at least as good if not better than the beer it is imitating. Really easy brew day. FG was only 1.012 no idea why but brewed with no temp control so might be the reason. Anyway, tastes great! I primed for bottling using 115g of sugar, should have used more as it took a few extra weeks to get to the right amount of carbonation, 2 weeks conditioning wasn’t enough. Highly rate this kit.

    Simple recipe, easy brew day and fast fermentation producing a Hefe Weiss at least as good as any commercial example. You can’t go wrong with this one!

    A superb kit,and the beer is great, a bargain at £15, highly recommended.

    Second time brewed this one, easy to brew, and good taste. Can drink in 2 weeks. But of course the longer you hold the better it tastes. Will buy again, don’t have fancy brewing kit, only plastic mash bucket and plastic fermentation bucket, but beer comes as good as I was expecting
