I fermented the extract versions of bavarian hefeweizen and patersbier last summer. Ambient temps around 70 F in my basement. Both turned out wonderful.

I believe it is essentially base malt with some carapils. So, I think the NW gold would be fine. Anything termed "light" would probably be fine as well. You may want to steep 1/2# of carapils with...
