Hefeweizen Ale I is a classic German wheat strain. It's a cloudy, big top cropper with the archetypical banana and clove character you expect in a hefe yeast. Ester notes turn up with increased fermentation temp, wort density and decreased pitch rate. Ferment at the lower end of its range to mute the ester expression and highlight notes of cloves. Over-pitching can lessen the banana, so plan accordingly. If you get a little too much sulfur, let the beer age longer and to condition out. See also Belgian Ale A (OYL-024) for an alternate complexity.

Flocculation: Low
Alcohol Tolerance: 10% ABV
Optimum Fermentation Temp: 64-75°F

Please Note: For best results we Always recommend ordering an Ice Pack with your liquid yeast. Ice Packs can be found below in the "You might Also Need" section.

 

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.
