LalBrew® Wit Wheat Beer Dry Yeast (Munich Wheat Beer)
LalBrew® Wit formerly known as Munich Wheat Beer yeast is a relatively neutral strain which can be used to produce a wide variety of wheat beer styles. Ester and phenol production is lower than for traditional hefeweizen strains such as Munich Classic. LalBrew® Wit provides a baseline profile of banana and spice aromas, but leaves space for the brewer to showcase other spice additions typical of Belgian style beers.

During the height of the pandemic when supplies were suddenly low everywhere and I couldn't get traditional Hefeweizen yeast, I opted for this....and what a nice surprise! Friends loved the yeast swap!
Not sure why, but my batch turned out with a red tint and didn’t really taste like traditional wit. It’s very good, but taste like a SA Boston Lager. In all fairness, the results are probably something I did and not the kit or yeast fault.
I had very good results using this yeast for making a wheat beer.
The yeast worked well in my hefeweizen. It didn't provide tons of banana or clove flavor but still made for a really nice beer.
Created a delicious wheat beer. Fermentation started almost immediately. Fast active fermentation.
