Style: Fruit-style Wheat Beer
Color: Cherry Tinted Golden
It takes a lot of ingredients to make a fruit-style wheat beer right, but the results are worth it! After all, you can't expect much if you just throw some cherry flavoring into a plain wheat beer. Our cherry wheat recipe kit starts with a full strength wheat beer, which is designed to be very mild so it won't overpower the delicate fruit flavor. Then we add 3 pounds of seedless cherry puree. The puree (made from a blend of sour cherries and dark sweet cherries) is seedless and sterile, which means you don't have to spend time removing seeds and crushing fruit. The natural fruit sugar in the pureed cherries has the bonus side effect of boosting the alcohol content! To round out the fruit profile, the recipe also includes 4 ounces of natural cherry flavoring. At bottling time, add the cherry flavoring until the beer is perfect for your taste. Also included with this recipe is a packet of pectic enzyme, which is necessary to remove the haze caused by real fruit.
Add this product to your cart in addition to your recipe kit if you would like the included dry yeast replaced with live yeast and an ice pack for a $5.00 surcharge.
