Product details

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. 

  • Beer Styles: Witbier, American Wheat Berliner Weiss, Gose, Hefeweizen, Dunkelweis, and Weizenbock
  • Aroma: Fruity, Slight Banana and Clove
  • Fermentation Temperature Range: 63 - 72°F
  • Optimum Temp: 63-74° F
  • Attenuation: Medium - High
  • Flocculation: Low
  • Alcohol Tolerance: 12% ABV

A cleaner, dryer version of the classic

Been using this one for a long time, although it was previously just called Munich wheat beer but it’s the same product. I have used it for a wide range beers, especially when I want to add a European profile to my beers.... found that at colder fermentation temperatures you can even slightly mimic a lager effect. The familiar banana, clove and lemon notes of classic wheat beer yeasts are much more subdued in this particular strain, but are still detectable and appealing. I actually blended this with a California ale strain for a recent ipa and the subtle Munich wit notes accentuated the funky strata hops I used for the dryhop. If you are interested in the wheat beer family of yeasts for non-wheat beer styles of beers, I would recommend starting here.

Substitution

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!

Good, but different

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.
