Description

Used in the production of traditional German Wheat beers. It produces the banana and clove nose traditionally associated with German Wheat beers and leaves the desired cloudy look. If you desire less banana and spice flavors ferment this yeast at 62F for 10-14 days. This yeast strain is highly flocculent so you will still need a blow off tube as your airlock. Due to the high amount of proteins in wheat, krausen will rise to tremendous levels in your fermenter. The hotter you ferment this beer the crazier your ferment will be.


Attenuation: 72-76%
Flocculation: Low
Fermentation Temp: 68-72
WYeast Equivalent: 3068 Weihenstephan



For best results we always recommend ordering an ice pack with your liquid yeast.

Very Vigorous Fermentation
Clove and banana. Did not have time for a starter, but had excellent fermentation for 8 days (OG=1.050, FG=1.008) with just the 40 mg package in 5 gallons. Fermented at 67-70 degrees F.

hefeweizen yeast = hefeweizen beer
It was fun brewing my first batch of german style hefeweizen using this yeast. The fermentation smelled unbelievably like bananas and progressed exactly as expected. And my beer tastes like the fresh stuff you drink in Bavaria. Prosit!

Perfect Hef yeast
I have tried several different yeasts, mostly dry 9 months out of the year because of shipping. This one is the ONE! Too bad I can't use it all year round. Fantastic full flavor...

Amazing how the Banana and Clove come through!
I just bottled last week a Hefe I made with this yeast and I was shocked while bottling how much I could smell the Banana and Clove. Popped one after a week and still had the same great aroma and taste! I can't wait to try this one again!

Makes a great Dunkelweisen
I used this for a simple Dark wheat beer, fermented at the low end and got the best clove flavor

great Hefeweizen yeast
anytime im making a extract or all grain Hefeweizen this is the yeast I will use. This is the best tasting Hefeweizen yeast I have used so far and I enjoy it very much. Show me a better yeast for style, I bet you cant.

Great Weizen
Wonderful yeast for a true German style Weizen. Fermenting at 66F seems to give the best balance between Clove and Banana. Ferment colder for more clove, and warmer for more banana.
