Safale WB-06 Wheat Beer Yeast - Fermentis

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

Specialty yeast selected for wheat beer fermentations. Produces subtle estery and phenol flavor notes typical of wheat beers. Allows you to brew beer with a high drinkability profile and presents a very good ability to suspend during fermentation.

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.

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

Brewing a Hefe and like dry yeast ease of use.
Scott S on Jun 1, 2020
I've made some great Hefeweizens with this beer. Safbrew makes some excellent yeast and it is the easiest possible way to do yeast.

Safale WB-06 "Wheat Yeast"
Bought this without researching enough. Reviews made it sound like a Bavarian Hefeweizen yeast. I brewed with it and definitely not a Hefe yeast. Made a decent beer, but more like an American wheat or even a Belgian Wit. Yeast performed fine, but be aware if you are expecting a Hefe profile.

First Time Using Dry Yeast
First time using dry yeast. Really fast starter. Much easier to use and CHEAPER than liquid packs. No starter needed!

Makes a great hef
Fermented it in an ambient temp of about 70 F and it made a great beer with not an overwhelming amount of banana. The clove and banana were nicely balanced and this sucker really dried out too.

Super easy to use and works great.
