Description

  • WLP380 has a different ester profile than WLP300 with nutmeg, clove, and spice more dominant than the banana and bubble gum aroma
  • Flavor and aroma are highly affected by pitching rate and fermentation temperature 
  • PurePitch® Next Generation offers a precise cell count across all strains so you can calculate the exact pitch rate you need for every batch
  • Scan the barcode on the back of the package and enter your wort stats into the Pitch Rate Calculator
  • White Labs Yeast has been producing high-quality brewer's yeast since 1995 and continues to raise the bar in the art of fermentation
  • Don't need a full package? Put the lid back on and store in the refrigerator for your next batch!

WLP380 Hefeweizen IV Ale Yeast is an excellent strain for making crisp, drinkable hefeweizen.  Large clove and phenolic aroma and flavor, with minimal banana. Refreshing citrus and apricot notes. Tends to be less flocculent than WLP300, and sulfur production is higher.

PurePitch® Next Generation—now with more yeast, get a foolproof fermentation without a starter! Just twist the cap & pitch!

Why PurePitch Next Gen versus other options?

Typically yeast manufacturers use a range for how many yeast cells are going into each package. This can vary widely, especially from strain to strain.  Next Gen offers a far more precise cell count across all strains allowing you to use the Whitelabs exclusive pitch calculator. Simply scan the barcode on the back of each package to be taken to their online calculator. Enter the volume, strength, and pitching temperature of the wort you are fermenting and the calculator tells you exactly how much yeast to pitch. You will be fermenting like a professional brewer, using the same concentration of yeast every time and enjoying more consistent results.  Don't need a full package? Put the lid back on and store in the refrigerator for your next batch. Whitelabs has also increased the viability (the number of living cells in the package) over the shelf life of the yeast. Next Gen strains are grown in their unique, small-batch reactors to assure freshness and then packaged in a special film that allows for off-gassing, assuring that their viability is absolutely industry leading.

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.

Perfect for Bavarian Hefeweizens
I've tried several Hefe yeasts and this one is the best for producing a clove-forward flavor similar to Paulaner's Bavarian Hefe-Weizen. Very forgiving with higher fermentation temps that would produce banana flavors in other yeasts. Let yeast work out sulfur during primary prior to bottling.
