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 proteinacous 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.

Styles:, Dunkelweizen, Fruit Beer, German Hefeweizen, Roggenbier (German Rye Beer), Weizen/Weissbier, Weizenbock

5 of 5 Great price December 21, 2012
Reviewer: Jonathan Grafton from Fond du Lac, WI United States  
Even though the yeast was a little bit older, it is no big deal.  I do a starter every time and at half the price, it was a no-brainer.
