Your Luck is about to change, because
LADY LUCK IS HERE!
THIS AWARD WINNING
GERMAN HEFEWEIZEN
took Best of Show at the
Piedmont Brewers Cup
homebrew competition in 2012.
This beer has classic hefeweizen character with loads of banana fruit esters. The winning recipe was brewed using a step mash proceedure that develops the body and structure of this beer.

This extract kit employs a minimash with a carefully selected grain bill that mimics the flavors and character produced using the step mash procedure. Looking for the All Grain version? You can find it here.

NOTES FROM THE BREWER

Fermentation at room temperature works well for this style.  However, if you have temperature control I would pitch a little extra yeast (or make a yeast starter) and ferment cold at 62°F.  After fermentation is almost complete ramp up to room temperature for ester development and to help dry out the beer.  Mine finished at 1.011.  I used carbon filtered city water and aerated for a bit over a minute with pure O2.  American Brewmaster sells the filters and O2 regulators.  I bottle carbonated this batch over kegging because I tend to get finer bubbles doing so, which is great for this style.  1 cup of corn sugar targeting 3.5 volumes of CO2 made it a very refreshing Hefe.  Cheers!
