Product 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.

Overly active

Not noticing any fermenting activity after 2 days. Opened container, there was
foam on top and a reading did show some activity. Stirred and closed, within 2 hours the brew was erupting. Foam filled airlock and overflowed, never saw anything like this before. Brew seems ok after bottling, but not tried yet.

Hegeweizen ale

Great tasting beer. Not a hoppy beer. But good.

Fast and thorough

Great yeast that brings out the signature banana flavor. Banana esters come out on the 2nd day of fermentation and it's done on the 4th day
