Belgian Wheat Beer

Wheat beers are deservedly popular all over the world but until now have been difficult to brew at home. For the malt extract we have used the classic ratio of 55% wheat and 45% barley and the Hallertauer Hersbrucker hops give just a delicate hint of bitterness. Although we have used a bottom fermenting yeast, the characteristic estery flavours are much in evidence when fermenting at warmer temperatures (20°C – 25°C). We are very proud of our wheat beer and are sure that lovers of this unique style will not be disappointed. Best bottled but can be served from a keg if preferred.

Brupaks range of `mashkits’ has been designed to appeal to both the beginner to mashing and the experienced brewer alike. The kits range from straightforward Bitters and Stouts to the more challenging Weissbiers and Pilsners, which involve multi-temperature mashing and controlled fermentation.

Each kit contains authentic ingredients of the highest quality. In particlular the German and Belgian recipes include malts, sugars and hops imported directly from those countries to ensure that the beers are as true to type as possible. All lager kits contain a bottom-fermenting yeast and those for wheat beers a true wheat beer yeast.

Each mash kit has its own individual mash and fermentation schedule, noted on the front of the packaging. Inside you will find the instructions of which schedule to use for your beer, along with the finest hops, grains sundries and in some cases other additions to really take your home brew to the next level!

HOW TO CALCULATE THE ABV (Alcohol By Volume) for Beers and Ales

1 – If you use 1kg of spitting Feathers’ brewing sugar you will produce a good quality beer with avg of 4.5 to 5% ABV.

OR

2 – If you were to use 1kg (2x500gs) of dry malt extract (DME) – the colour appropriate to the type of beer (see colour guide below), you will produce a beer slightly higher in ABV yet at the same time retaining its body.

OR The Spitting-Feathers’ RECOMMENDATION!

3 – However, we recommend to you, to use 1.5kg of unhopped liquid malt extract (LME) – again the colour appropriate to the type of beer being made (see colour guide below).

The use of a LME will undoubtedly produce a beer of pure quality, depth, body and flavour than options 1 or 2 above. The ABV will be determined by the use of a hydrometer
