Excellent Hefeweissen strain
This yeast creates the flavor profile I'm looking for in an authentic Bavarian Hefeweissen. Some of the other strains I tried left way too much of either a "vanilla" profile, or a "banana" profile. This yeast is spot on, to me. That being said, ferment your brew with this yeast at no more than 65 degrees. This yeast is very frisky, and the kreusen will blow out through your air lock and blow off tube, making a pretty good sized mess.

Rich, clovey, easy to use, great yeast
I had mixed results with other weizen yeasts. This was one I tried on a lark for a dunkleweizen. Turned out fantastic. Very easy to use, not fussy, with a wonderful flavor profile. In a 1.054 wort, I still created moderate banana esters, but also a touch of fruit and rich clovey spice.

I fermented at 62F ambient. It finishes slightly tart. It will not attenuate near the 80%. It achieved a 74% attenuation in both a dunkleweizen and a weizenbock. So if you plan for a 73% attenuation you will not be disappointed.

Great yeast for a wonderfully balanced bavarian wheat.
