Weyermann® Bavarian Hefeweizen is an unhopped malt extract with approx. 75% extract, a golden-brown color and a fine, sweet malt aroma.
Weyermann® Bavarian Hefeweizen is made from high-quality Weyermann® Wheat malt Pale, Weyermann® Pilsner malt and Weyermann® CARAHELL®.
For the production, a traditional mash preparation and wort boiling is carried out according to the beer type. The authentic beer wort produced in this way is clarified before evaporation by means of a high-performance centrifuge. After evaporation, an aseptic hot filling takes place in container sizes from 4 kg to 1200 kg.
The desired wort gravity can be achieved by means of dilution with brewing water. Weyermann® dilution guidelines are available below under Downloads.
Weyermann® malt extracts can be combined with all hop products. The duration of the wort boiling depends on the isomerization time of the hop products used and the desired bitterness.
Adjusted to the corresponding wort, the Weyermann® Bavarian Hefeweizen malt extract corresponds to a traditional German wheat beer in taste and visual appearance. Through the individual selection of hops, yeast and fermentation, adapted to the beer type, various beer styles can be brewed, such as:
- Wheat beer; American Wheat Beer, Leichtes Weizen, Weissbier, Hefeweizen, Kristal Weizen, Bernsteinfarbenes Weizen, Dunkel Weizen, Weizenbock, American Wheat Wine, Berliner Weisse, Lambic and Fruit Lambic, Gueuze, Witbier, Gose, Lichtenhainer, Sathi
- Pale Ale; Koelsch-style, Blonde Ale, Summer Ale, German Rye Beer, Juicy Pale Ale, Hazy Pale Ale
- IPA; White IPA, Juicy IPA, Hazy IPA, NEIPA
- Strong Ale; Wheat Wine
Very well suited for Krausen dosage prior to secondary fermentation or for bottle fermentation.
Also, very well suited for original gravity correction at the end of wort boiling.
All Weyermann® malt extracts can be combined with each other, as well as with Weyermann® Sinamar®, for more individual recipe creations.
