Free Shipping on Orders Over $30



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.

Hell yea hefe
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.

Very active yeast. Blew off extensively the day after brewing. More important, the resulting beer was as good as some of the best German Hefeweizens (e.g., Paulaner, not quite as good as Weihenstephaner)
