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%.

Flocculation: Medium
Attenuation: 72-76%
Temperature Range: 62-75F, 16-24C
Alcohol Tolerance: 11 to12% ABV

Belgian Dubbel
Belgian Tripel
Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer 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.

WY3944 Belgian Wit Yeast
Finished at 1.012 or spot on. MoreBeer insulated the yeast pack well. No off flavors detected and one of my better beers to date (Blue Moon clone).

Belgian Wit
Made a Belgian Witbier. Turned out to be a session at 3.7%, but the flavor from the yeast is spot on. Will be brewing with it again ASAP. Going for a bigger Belgian Wit next time - 5.2%ish

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.
