It steeped really well prior to pitching. Give me 6 weeks before flavor but so far 2 week fermentation looks really good.
Hands down the best yeast for Hefeweizen!
The wife loves a hefeweizen with pronounced banana and this yeast does the trick at 67F. Vigorous fermentation and drops fast as well. Just need a good head space for a generous krausen. It will also produce mostly clove at 62F, so it is versatile in this respect.
Fermented at room temp in my cellar (72 F). I'd heard the yeast is a climber so I used a 7 gallon fermentor... and it still pushed through the airlock. Switched to a blowoff and it blew the cork out. Finally relented and just put a chessecloth over the top and let it bubble out the top. Granted, my recipe used a pound of turbinado sugar, but you are forewarned. That said, flavor is classic banana and pear with minimal to no clove; exactly what I was looking for.
I've used this year several times over the years. It's never let me down on making one of the best German Hefeweizen I've ever had. You will need a blow off house for the first few days of fermentation unless you want a real need on your hands.
