Omega Yeast Hefeweizen Ale

SKU: OYL021

The most popular German wheat beer strain used worldwide. Produces an authentic balance of banana esters and clove phenolics that can be manipulated by the brewer, depending on various conditions.

We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary ice packs with all liquid yeasts. It is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.

Description

Details

The most popular German wheat beer strain used worldwide. Produces an authentic balance of banana esters and clove phenolics that can be manipulated by the brewer, depending on various conditions e.g., increased ester production through increasing the fermentation temperature, increasing the wort density, and decreasing the pitch rate or over pitching to reduce or nearly eliminate banana character. Decreasing the ester level will allow higher clove character to come through. Sulfur is commonly produced, but will dissipate with conditioning. This strain is very powdery and will remain in suspension for an extended amount of time following attenuation. This is true top cropping yeast and requires fermenter headspace of 33% or more.

would this be the same yeast you would use with a dunkleweizen?
A shopper on Jan 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This would be an excellent choice for a dunkelweizen! Same strain that we have always recommended for a dunkel. Cheers!
