4.2 / 5.018 ReviewsMake A Yeast StarterYeast is always too expensive so I started making starters. Here's what I do, after mashing I collect (in a 1000 mL earlymer flask) about 400 mL of wort (prior to boiling) dilute to 600 mL and microwave until it boils. I cover with a paper towel and rubber band. I let it boil for about one minute, cool to room temperature and then add 2 grams of dry yeast. I then add a magnetic sir bar and with a stir plate stir for about 4 hours. During that 4 hours I'm boiling wort, cooling wort, adjust the gravity, whirlpool, let settle for about 2 hours, rack off sediment into new bucket and then add my yeast starter which is already bubbling. By morning my fermentation is on its way and I only used 2 grams out of the 11. I will get an easy 5 fermentations out of this 11 gram packet. Prost !November 7, 2013Great Wheat Beer YeastI have used this yeast twice on wheat beers. It has a smooth flavor in the beer. It accentuated the clove flavor I was going for on the beers. I fermented the beers around 65 degrees.April 6, 2013Always Use this,I brew a large amount of Wheat Beers. Its most of what I do. I always use the dry yeast, it's just how I learned i guess. I've been tempted to try the more expensive yeast just to see...but why? I have never had a batch fail. I do always pre hydrate and get it started before pitching and i have never had a bad batch in decades...September 18, 2013Fast, reliable, consistentVery good dry yeast for ales with lots of wheat or rye. My preferred yeast for Roggenbiers.May 22, 2017Purchased
7 months agoMakes a good wheat beerSave a couple of bucks and use the dry yeast. I don't need to make a starter either, just sprinkle it in. The yeast eats all the sugar and gets to the expected final gravity and I have myself some good wheat beer.February 16, 2014Makes good wheat beerI like to brew wheat beer and have tried many different yeast. I'm satisfied with the results from this brand, and it happens to cost less than the liquid yeast, a double win. I hydrate the yeast in water before using, and don't add it directly to the beer._x000D_March 30, 2014Dry YeastWow!! Great stuff, always arrives fresh..easy to use...great product!May 12, 2014Very Niiiiice....I used this in my last batch of Wheat Beer, I was Very impressed! The airlock was bubbling in a matter of hours with no blow-off (had me worried for a little while tho..) _x000D_My brew had a nice smooth flavor with a clean finish, no citrus or banana flavors that I could detect, some people like those flavors in a beer, I don't._x000D__x000D_Sucks that the price went up, but what hasn't? My Wheat Beer turned out to be one of the best Ales I have made, definitely worth even the higher price. If the taste is important, DON'T SKIMP ON THE YEAST!!February 17, 2012Works very wellThis yeast works great! Bought some and used it on my last Wheat beer for the first time. Was happy with the way everything turned out. The price..... I really dont care for and is kinda steep but this is a good strand of yeast. Highly recommend.October 4, 2012Not my favoriteI personally haven't had too much luck with this particular dry yeast. This yeast used to be a lot cheaper than it is now, and I used to use it quite a bit. The price has gone up quite a bit though, so it's not that great of a value. I've also had issues with long lag times after pitching with this yeast. I've had 3 batches take about 2-3 days to get going after pitching. I think there are better yeasts out there for the money.February 8, 2013
