Used to produce the Oregon style American Hefeweizen, like Widmer. Unlike WLP300,
this yeast produces a very slight amount of the banana and clove notes. It produces
some sulfur, but is otherwise a clean fermenting yeast which does not flocculate
well, producing a cloudy beer.
Tastes great and I am on my 4 washing of this yeast and find it is still going strong. Great with overly hopped wheat beers and does well when you elevate the gravity as well. I have this beer going great on a Rasp. wheat as we speak and this was after a short starter of a 7 month old yeast wash. If you are looking for a nice wheat you can't go wrong. Had this clear out on me on an aging keg and it still tasted great. Gave the keg a shake and was nice and hazy again so you can play it either way with a cold crash or classic hazy wheat.
