Craft Beer – German Hefeweizen

And now for something completely different. A wheat beer not trying to be anything else than a good German Hefeweizen. I guess the purists would not like the choice of hops but it is what I had and it was only for bitterness anyway.

The coolest animal to match this cool beer is of course the Meerkat. From meeting it in the wild in South Africa it is one of my favorites. The name became “Meerkat! eller de VETEkatten” a play on both some Swedish saying and the wheat inside it.


  • 15 l water
  • 1  can Cooper Wheat Malt Extract (1.5 kg)
  • 90 min: 10g East Kent Goldings (6.0)
  • 1 pkgs  Hefeweizen Ale IV WLP380


IBU: ~20
OG: 1.034
FG: 1.014
ABV: ~2.3%

Sorry for the late update, the beer is almost all out. I have a 2 liter bottle left but I think I have kept if for a bit to long. Need to be at least a few when opening that size even though it is low on alcohol.
