For the serious wheat beer lover! Munich Wheat Beer Dry Yeast won’t overpower the flavor of the grains and gives you a delicious German Beer with a fuller taste. 
Munich yeast is a popular strain among homebrewers for making German Weizen and Hefeweizen. A traditional Hefeweizen is unfiltered, giving the beer an added richness to the flavor. This yeast is a quick starter and gives a vigorous fermentation which can be completed in 4 days if kept above 63° F. Medium to high attenuation.
Munich is a non-flocculent strain. In classic open fermentation vessels, the yeast can be skimmed off the top. If desired, some settling can be promoted by cooling and use of fining agents and isinglass. Aroma is estery to both palate and nose with typical banana notes. Won’t display off-aromas when properly handled. Best when used at traditional ale temperatures (62 - 72° F) and after re-hydration in the recommended manner (see the documents tab for re-hydration procedure).

Beer Styles: Wheat-based beers, weizens and hefeweizen
Aroma: Estery, banana
Attenuation: Medium to High
Fermentation Range: 63-72°F
Flocculation: Low
Alcohol Tolerance: 12% ABV

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

I've only ever used dry yeast and it was the 1st option

Because I need to re-pitch in an existing brew

Recommended dry yeast for my kit - it is summer and I live in Alabama and I am concerned that liquid yeast would not survive the trip here.

Less hassle than with liquid yeasts. So far never had an issue with dry yeast. Activate with a tbs of honey.

Great for Hefeweizen
Made a Hefeweizen fermenting at 72ºF The beer came out with a very good taste of banana and clove. Would use again.

Good Hefeweizen Yeast
The most significant quality of this yeast is that my German Hefeweizen (More Beer extract kit) attenuated from 1.044 OG down to 1.014 FG in about 3-4 days, after which I gave it a 3 day diacytal rest before cold crash (1 day) and kegging. I hydrated the yeast, used a paint mixer on a high-speed drill to aerate the wort and pitched in the 70's. So that contributed the fast fermentation. If I were to compare this Munich yeast to the White Labs WLP300 Hefeweizen yeast I would say this one is very similar and hard to distinguish a difference but it has the classic banana clove favors present in a medium amount. Overall it gave me a great tasting German Heff, with a very fast fermentation (beer in a week!) and at a great price.

Quick clean fermentation
Used recently for a Weissbier/German Hefeweizen. Beer turned out well, but very clean flavor and aroma without any banana/clove aromas that might have been expected. Rehydrated prior to pitch, fermented starting at 63 rising to 67 over 5 days. Transferred from primary to keg on day 5 and poured first glass on day 7. I was hoping for some hint of fermentation character from this yeast, there isn’t much. It did make a very tasty beer.

Good Stuff
They said it would be active. Had a blow off at 24 hours with my Hef. and had to switch to a blow off tube. Very pleased with this yeast. Will know more when the beer is ready, but this stuff is potent.

perfect dry yeast for a german heffe
Honestly not a fan of German Heffe, but this yeast you can push and pull with temps to get the desired phenol or banana flavors.
