Fermentis SafAle™ W-68 is the iconic Weihenstephan weizen strain and ideal for brewing German-style wheat beers, including Hefeweizen, Kristallweizen, Dunkelweizen, Weizenbock, and more. Suitable for a variety of wheat beers and other styles with fruity-spicy profiles, Fermentis SafAle™ W-68 produces aromatic beers rich in phenols (notes of clove and pepper) and esters (floral and fruity banana flavors). Known for medium sedimentation, this strain forms no clumps and will appear as a powdery haze when resuspended in beer.

This yeast can be pitched directly, but if you prefer to rehydrate, the instructions are below.

Sprinkle the yeast in a minimum of 10 times its weight of sterile water or wort (we suggest 4 oz) at 70°F to 77°F (21 to 25 °C). Do not stir. Leave to rest 15 to 30 minutes. Gently stir for 30 minutes, and pitch the resultant cream into the fermentation vessel.

  • Attenuation: 78-84%
  • Sedimentation Time: Medium
  • Alcohol Tolerance: 9-11% ABV
  • Optimum Fermentation Temp: 64-78°F

*See the technical data sheet below for more information on rehydration, usage and storage.
