I recently brewed a batch of Northern Brewer's American Wheat but added 1.5# of Agave Necter to it. I used WyLabs 320 American Hefeweizen Yeast and I'm interested to see what flavor the agave lends... The primary is on day 5 right now but i'll keep everyone posted!

I just ordered the same kit, but plan on adding about 1.5lbs of the Wildflower Honey. I've used that honey in a MrBeer based kit and it turned out amazing, hoping to replicate that with this 5 gallon batch.

Just finished the keg... it was every bit of delicious. I'm going to try and replicate the recipe using all grains!

Still waiting to brew this one, have an Irish Draught still in my primary. Makes me think if I can get away with using a 5gallon BB for the wheat.

I would rack the Irish Draught to the 5g BB as a secondary whenever it's ready. Wheat beers can get a little feisty in the primary and you want to make sure there is enough space for the krausen.

Check out this vid of a watermelon wheat... gone mad.

nope, used dry yeast too. I was interested in finding a cheap, quick, and tasty beer. I must say this delivered for me. I did drink it with a orange pretty consistantly which was great. I noticed that the beer had a natural fruity taste that I liked 1 week after bottle that faded with bottle aging. Next time I might just leave it in the bottle for 8 days or so then into the frig.
