Description

This versatile witbier yeast strain can be used in a variety of Belgian style ales. This strain produces a complex flavor profile dominated by spicy phenolics with low to moderate ester production. It is a great strain choice when you want a delicate clove profile not to be overshadowed by esters. It will ferment fairly dry with a slightly tart finish that compliments the use of oats, malted and unmalted wheat. This strain is a true top cropping yeast requiring full fermenter headspace of 33%.

Not certain what went wrong but went from a 1.050 to 1.020 ABV was 3.9.

Best Belgian Wit Yeast!
I love this yeast, I brewed a Belgian Wit recently and this yeast really made the difference with the aromatics, slight spice and tang and had that authentic Belgian quality taste and aroma. This is the one to use if you are making an authentic Belgian Wit.

Great for Belgian Wits
I have used this yeast a dozen times to brew a Belgian Wit. It is one of our go-to brews, everyone loves it and this yeast is the main reason why. I have tried other yeasts and (my opinion) this is superior.

long fermentation
Wow! This yeast took a 1056 down to a 1008. It started very quick and went for a full three weeks in the primary. The beer is awesome after bottle conditioning. Probably the best Wit yeast I've used. Just gonna have to give it time.
