All Grain HomeBrew Recipe for a Berliner Weisse

Profile: HomeBrew recipe for a Berliner Weisse sour beer, similar to Golden Road Berliner Weisse. Light-bodied and effervescent with a tart sour flavor. Refreshing finish. Very low hop presence, and very low ABV.



2 lbs Pale 2-row Malt

2 lbs. Red Wheat Malt

1 lb Unmalted Wheat

6 oz. Acidulated Malt


1/2 oz. Hallertauer 5%a, 60 minutes

Other: 12 oz. of rice hulls (to help with sticky wheat mash)

YeastWyeast 3191 PC Berliner Weisse Blend (contains Ale yeast, Brett, and Lacto) or White Labs WLP630 Berliner Weisse Blend (contains German Weizen Ale yeast and Lacto)


Step Mash all grains with rice hulls mixed in:

30 minutes at 127 degrees

60 minutes at 148 degrees

Sparge at 170 degrees.

One hour boil with hop regimen above.

Ferment at 65-68 degrees.

Rack to keg or secondary and age for 4 months. (Test small sample monthly to see how sourness progresses. Longer aging will increase the sour flavors.)
