I chose Craft-a-Brew's Hefeweizen as few other home brew companies offer a wheat beer kit. I prefer wheat beers as it seems most craft breweries are in competition to shove a much hops as possible into their creations which overwhelms the subtler flavors found in other less hoppy beers. While I think there needs to be a bit more wheat provided in the kit to start the wort, overall the finished product provides a smooth, clean and enjoyable taste. The final color of the beer is caramel, more so than one would expect from a wheat beer, and I needed to bottle condition the beer for three weeks rather than two as at two weeks carbonation was such that the beer seemed a bit flat. After three weeks the carbonation was spot on. I shared the final brew with several neighbors and all indicated they enjoyed the beer. Comments included "nice and light and not too hoppy", it will "pair well with any food" and "worth repeating". As for the homebrewer's package, the kit included pretty much everything I needed to get started. The instructions were simple, clear and easy to follow. I also chose this kit/company over others as mixing a couple cans of malt and what appears to be corn syrup on the stove for 30 minutes seemed to be a bit of a lazy man's way to "brew" beer. I wanted a more authentic experience, something that would take time and some effort, and the Craft-a-Brew starter kit provided that. The whole grain wheat, powdered malted barley extract, and hops pellets were a great way to get started. The entire brew process from start to finish (including set up and cleaning) was about 3 hours. Fermenting and bottling was not complex, but the yeast did not activate after 24 hours and I needed to follow some troubleshooting instructions to get it going. In total, whatever irregularities I encountered could easily be chalked up to being a rookie, first time brewer. As I said though, the flavor was quite good and I will make this beer again. The only reason for four stars is the cost of the bottles/capper. It would have been cheaper to buy a couple four packs of Grolsch and enjoy those and reuse the bottles. Bottom line, this was a really fun process and the beer was very good. I will continue to use Craft-a-Brew to experiment with home brewing and would recommend this company to others. p.s. one more plus was that I saved the spent wheat and harvested yeast from the slurry and made some really good beer bread.
