This American wheat beer takes wheat beers to the next level with the addition of cluster hops. These hops will impart fruity melon, berry, and citrus flavors with a subtle peppery finish. These hops will complement the medium body and smooth wheat character making this an easy-drinking wheat beer full of fruit flavor, but very low bitterness. It’s the perfect beer to mark the end of winter and beginning of spring.

    Cleaning is one of the most important steps in brewing. It kills microscopic bacteria, wild yeast, and molds that may cause off-flavors in your beer. Make certain to clean all equipment that comes in contact with your beer by following the directions below:

    1. Fill clean keg with warm water to line mark 1 on the back, then add ½ pack (about 1 tablespoon) of No-Rinse Cleanser and stir until dissolved. Once dissolved, the solution is ready to use. Save the remaining ½ of No-Rinse Cleanser because you will need it for bottling.

    2. Screw on lid and swirl the keg so that the cleaning solution makes contact with the entire interior of the keg, including the underside of the lid. Note that the ventilation notches under the lid may leak solution. Allow to sit for at least 2 minutes and swirl again.

    3. To clean the spigot, open it fully and allow liquid to flow for 5 seconds and then close

    4. Pour the rest of the solution from the keg into a large bowl. Place your spoon/whisk, can opener and measuring cup into the bowl to keep them cleaned throughout the brewing process. Leave them immersed for at least 2 minutes in cleaning solution prior to using.

    5. After all surfaces have been thoroughly cleaned, do not rinse or dry the keg or utensils. Return lid to top of keg, proceed immediately to brewing.


    Brewing beer is the process of combining a starch source (in this case, a malt brewing extract) with yeast. Once combined, the yeast eats the sugars in the malt, producing alcohol and carbon dioxide (CO2). This process is called fermentation.

    1. Remove the yeast packet from under the lid of the can of Brewing Extract (you won’t be using
    this), then place the unopened can and BrewMax LME in hot tap water

    2.  Add all the grains to a Muslin Hop Sacks tying it closed.

    3. Using a measuring cup, pour 6 cups of water into your clean 4-quart or larger pot (Use just
    enough water to cover the grains).Bring your pot of water up to above 155 degrees F.

    4. Add the grain sack to the hot water and steep for 60 minutes between 155-165 degrees.(You
    may add up to another 2 cups of hot water to make sure that your grains are fully submerged.) 

    5. Carefully lift the grain sack out of the pot, and place into a strainer/colander. Rinse the sack
    over the pot with 1 cup of hot water each. Let drain. Do NOT squeeze the grain bag. Discard
    grain bag. 

    6. Place 1 packet of Cluster pellet hops into a hop sack tying it closed, then trim away excess

    7. Bring the grain water to a low rolling boil, add in hop sack, let boil for 10 minutes. While this
    is boiling, place the contents of a 2nd packet of Cluster hops into a hop sack and trim away
    excess material. 

    8. After the 10 minute boil has passed, remove the pot from heat and add the 2nd hop sack to the
    wort (do not remove previous hop sack). 

    9. Open the can of Brewing Extract and LME and pour the contents into the hot mixture in your
    pot. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort. 

    10. Fill your fermenter with cold tap water to the mark 1 on the back. If using any other
    fermenter this would be approximately 1 gallon of water. 

    11. Pour the wort, including the hop sacks, into your fermenter, and then bring the volume of the
    fermenter to mark 2 by adding more cold water. Leave the hop sacks in the wort for the duration
    of fermentation. (If you have a different fermenter top it off with cold water to the 8.5-liter

    12. Stir your wort mixture vigorously with your sanitized spoon or whisk.

    13. Sprinkle the Safale US-05 yeast packet into the keg, and screw on the lid. Do not stir.

    Put your fermenter in a location with a consistent temperature between 70° and 76° F (21°-
    24° C), and out of direct sunlight. Ferment for 14 days.

    STEP 3: Dry Hopping

    Dry hopping is the process of adding hops to a beer which will impart more hop flavor and aroma to your beer.

    1. At day 7 of fermentation add the packet of Cluster hops into your fermenter. Careful remove
    the lid from your fermenter and dump the pellet hops in. Quickly close the lid.


    After 14 days, taste a small sample to determine if the beer is fully fermented and ready to bottle. If it tastes like flat beer, it is ready. If it’s sweet, then it’s not ready. Let it ferment for 3 more days (17 total). At this point, it is time to bottle. Do not let it sit in the fermenter for longer than 24 days total.

    1. When your beer is ready to bottle, fill a 1-gallon container with warm water, then add the remaining ½ pack of the No-Rinse Cleanser and stir until dissolved. Once dissolved, it is ready to use

    2. Distribute the cleaning solution equally among the bottles. Screw-on caps (or cover with a metal cap if using glass bottles) and shake bottles vigorously. Allow to sit 10 minutes, then shake the bottles again. Remove caps and empty all cleaning solutions into a large bowl. Use this solution to clean any other equipment you may be using for bottling. Do not rinse.

    3. Add 2 Carbonation Drops to each 740-mL bottle. For 1-liter bottles, add 2 ½ drops; for ½-liter bottles add 1 drop. Alternatively, you can add table sugar using this table as a guide. 

    4. Holding the bottle at an angle, fill each bottle to about 2 inches from the bottle’s top.

    5. Place caps on bottles, hand tighten, and gently turn the bottle over to check the bottle’s seal. It is not necessary to shake them.

    6. Store the bottles upright and out of direct sunlight in a location with a consistent temperature between 70°-76°F or 21°-24°C. Allow sitting for a minimum of 14 days. If the temperature is cooler than suggested it may take an additional week to reach full carbonation. 


    After the primary carbonation has taken place your beer is ready to drink. We recommend putting 1 bottle in the refrigerator at first for 48 hrs. After 48hrs. give it a try and if it is up to your liking put the rest of your beer in the fridge. If it does not taste quite right, leave the bottles out at room temp for another week or so. Keep following this method until your brew tastes just how you like it. 

    This process is called conditioning and during this time the yeast left in your beer can help clean up any off-flavors. Almost everything gets a little better with time and so will your beer

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Mcapt04 from Hoppy Wheat Goodness! Superb wheat beer. Pours a yellow orange color with a nice fluffy egg white head. Hoppy citrus aroma that transfers to the taste. I added the zest of a medium orange and half a teaspoon of crushed coriander. Medium body and good carbonation. 3 weeks fermentation, 3 weeks to carbonate and this sample was only one week into conditioning. Will condition a few more weeks to see how things go but right now it is excellent. I called this one Trade Winds and had some labels made up for this excellent brew!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Mt50 from Bindlestick Hoppy Wheat I’m not normally a fan of wheat beers, but there are a few I like, so I tried this because it sounded interesting. This is definitely one of those I like. Tons of grapefruity hops aroma and flavor, complimented by a crisp bitterness. Very clear with a decent mouthfeel and a perfect head. Quite refreshing and tasty. One of the top three I have brewed. Fun to make , also.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Agave from Loved the hoppy flavor in wheat beer I am not a fan of wheat beers but with the three packs of hops I decided to try it anyway. And it was a pleasant surprise! The aroma is subtle with a medium head and good mouthfeel. Does well with 3 weeks of carbonation and a week in the fridge. Just about right for this time of the year - not too heavy and not too light.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Steve78 from Great beer! By far the best tasting beer I've ordered from Mr Beer. Nice and smooth with no overbearing flavors that you make you settle for just one. Alcohol content was low. I even let it ferment a week longer and maintain a steady 70 degrees for the whole ferment.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by Mack from My Review for Bindlestick Hoppy Wheat I bought this recipe a while back. I had mixed results with this recipe. I had no problems bottling this recipe, but there was no carbonation in the end product. The beer did not taste bad, but there was no carbonation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Mark1 from Dry hopped taste This is my first experience with dry hopping. The beer had a very floral flavor that reminds my of grapefruit. Very similar to Sam Adams 76.
