Bavarian Wheat

ESB 3kg Bavarian Wheat

Eastern Suburbs Brewmakers are pretty serious about homebrewing. They cater for people who like to make their beer completely from scratch, well, maybe not completely. But they will supply everything required for the home brewer who wants to mash their own malt.

Wikipedia: brewing beer.

They have some excellent products for less experienced, but still enthusiastic brewers like me, too. They source fresh wort from the St. Peters Brewery, so you don’t need to get malt extract at all – you buy the real deal, then merely ferment it at home. But their beer packs take some beating.

In this case, I’ve gone with the 3kg Bavarian Wheat pack.

We shall see. First appearances were promising — pale with a spicy aroma. Initial fermentation seems slow, but this is probably due to the lower amounts of sugar in wheat malt as opposed to barley.

Tasting notes: Best wheat beer so far. Nice and pale, but with a grainy and aromatice flavour. Easy to drink, and definately better than the Morgans one. 7/10

  1. You could say it looked quite cloudy and yeasty. A less generous soul might use the word ‘milky’ instead. Tasted okay, though, and definately seemed more like a wheat beer than that morgans one.

  2. I tried the wheat beer last night – the first half of the bottle tasted a bit like a normal beer, but the clouder bottom section of the bottle tasted almost like hoegaarden. It was great!
