Berliner Weisse 4,5%
Berliner Weisse is a sour, fresh and thirst-quenching German wheat beer. The beer is soured by a Kettle Sour process using lactic acid bacteria.

Add fruits and berries to your sour beer
Its simple to make this Berliner Weisse into a sour beer with fruits and berries, often called "Florida Weisse". When the sour beer has fermented for 3-4 days, carefully pour the fruits or berries (preferrably pasteurized to avoid infections) into the fermenter and let ferment rest of the time.
The dosage of fruits and berries varies, depending on how much taste or colour one wants, and how powerful flavours the particular fruit or berry has. For example, raspberries can be added in quite high amounts, about 50-300g per liter. However a fruit such as passion fruit can be dosed lower at 10-20g per liter becaue it has a more distinct flavour and sourness. Of course, it all comes down to individual taste and preference.
The Home Brewery's purées are perfect for this application.

How long does it take to brew?
The sour beer is brewed during 3-4 days. Day 1 it's mashed, sparged and quick boiled, and then it's soured for 2-3 days. Day 3 the soured beer is boiled and then fermented for 2 weeks. After that, the beer is bottled and bottle conditioned for 2 weeks to produce carbonation. 4 weeks in total, then the beer is ready to be enjoyed!

What do I need to have at home?
Except The Home Brewery's Brew Kit 10L, you will need a kettle 10-15L, pot 3-5L, paddle, oven rack/strainer, One deciliter measure, sugar, brown bottles, plastic wrap foil (cling film).
Please note: This brew kit requires a mesh brew bag (BIAB-bag) which is included in our complete brew kits. If you have other means of brewing with crushed malt at home, thats fine.

    One of the best beers I've brewed even though I only got it to 4%. Next will be with raspberries in.
