Another common name for this brew is Weizenbier (“wheat beer”) because of the preponderance of malted wheat in the brew’s grain bill. According to German law, all beer that is labeled Weissbier or Weizenbier must be made with at least 50% malted wheat. Most Bavarian Weissbiers contain 60 to 70% malted wheat. The rest is malted barley.
