Slightly phenolic and tart, this is the yeast used to produce Wit in Belgium. This yeast is very active when it peaks its fermentation cycle. Pitch at 66-68F and let it rise up 1-2 degrees per day and hold it at 72-75F for 7-14 days. It would not hurt to leave your witbier in the fermenter for an extra 7 days to allow the yeast to flocculate out and clean up its environment.

Attenuation: 74-78%
Flocculation: Low to Medium.
Fermentation Temp: 67-74.
Wyeast Equivalent: 3944 Witbier

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.

Does the job well

I used this to make a Hoegarden type of beer. It’s starts out slow compared to many other yeasts that I’ve used. Probably should plan for 21 days for it to do it’s work. Flavor turned out great.

Perfect choice for a wit
Strong fermenter, use a blowoff tube. Can produce some sulfur if too cold.

Banana Bomb
I used this in a Belgian IPA in cognition with the White labs saison, per the recommendation of the person who gave me the recipe. This yeast overpowered the saison, probably because I didn't raise the heat up high enough. But I ended up with loads of Banana, more than I had hoped for but the style was odd, so I guess this is what people may be looking for with this yeast.

Belgian Wit Ale yeast
I have used this yeast three times now and it has consistently produced great tasting Belgian beers. I would recommend keeping it at the preferred temperature per the white labs temperature chart.
