YMK American Wheat

Another American classic for the Fourth of July. American Wheat beer has the refreshing, light flavor of German Wheat beers without the heavy yeast character. American Wheat is perfect when served with a wedge of fresh lemon or orange.



Place 1 gallon of water into the brew kettle. Bring the water to a boil. Stir the dry malt extract into the kettle and boil for 10 minutes. Stir the kettle frequently to prevent darkening the wort.

Turn off the heat and stir in the Wheat malt extract. Keep stirring until the malt is completely dissolved.

Add one gallon of cold water to the kettle. Pour remaining water into your fermenter then add the cooled wort. Pitch yeast when temperature is between 70 and 80 degrees.

Ferment and bottle using your usual methods.
