Used in the production of traditional German Wheat beers. It produces the banana and clove nose traditionally associated with German Wheat beers and leaves the desired cloudy look. If you desire less banana and spice flavors ferment this yeast at 62F for 10-14 days. This yeast strain is highly flocculent so you will still need a blow off tube as your airlock. Due to the high amount of proteins in wheat, krausen will rise to tremendous levels in your fermenter. The hotter you ferment this beer the crazier your ferment will be.
Fermentation Temp: 68-72
WYeast Equivalent: 3068 Weihenstephan
For best results we always recommend ordering an ice pack with your liquid yeast.
Please Note: When choosing an ice pack option beware that the liquid yeast will not arrive cold even when shipped together. Ice packs and insulated mailing options are designed to keep the yeast colder for longer during shipment, but they will not ensure that your yeast arrives cold. We will not replace liquid yeast that arrives warm. During warmer months we strongly recommend you choose dry yeast.
