Wyeast 3068 Weihenstephan Weizen Yeast

SKU Y3068



Product Details

Classic German wheat beer yeast, used by more German brewers than any other strain. Dominated by banana ester production, phenols and clove-like characteristics. Extremely attenuative yeast, which produces a tart, refreshing finish. Yeast remains in suspension readily with proteinaceous wheat malt. Sometimes used in conjunction with lager yeast and kraeusened to finish the beer and improve the overall dryness. High CO2 levels, typically at 2.7 - 3.2 volumes is desirable for best presentation. This strain is a true top cropping yeast requiring full fermenter headspace of 33%. Increasing pitch rates will reduce ester production. Activator packs do not require the use of a yeast starter.

Made yeast starter, made two 5 gallon batches of Hefeweizen both fermenting with rigor!

Wyeast 3068 for Wiezenbock

Using this yeast and fermenting at 62 degrees gave and amazing flavor balance between banana and clove. So much so, I brewed another batch on same yeast just to get the same flavor. Awesome..go get some!

Great fermentation. Nice classic weizen yeast that makes an excellent hefeweizen.

Love it!

I have made Heffeweisen a few times and never really liked any I made until I tried this kit. Very good.
