Product details

The most popular German wheat beer strain used worldwide. Produces an authentic balance of banana esters and clove phenolics that can be manipulated by the brewer.

Depending on various conditions; increased ester production through increasing the fermentation temperature, increasing the wort density, and decreasing the pitch rate or over pitching to reduce or nearly eliminate banana character.

Decreasing the ester level will allow higher clove character to come through. Sulfur is commonly produced, but will dissipate with conditioning. This strain is very powdery and will remain in suspension for an extended amount of time following attenuation. This is true top cropping yeast and requires fermenter headspace of 33% or more.

NOTE:  During summer months, we include complimentary ice packs with all liquid yeast orders. However, it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will stay frozen given transit times and particularly hot temperatures. For this reason, we recommend ordering dry yeast during summer months.

Damn good brew

Again a complete kit with easy to follow directions. Brew day was a breeze and everything went as planned. Now a word of caution ⚠️ you do not want to be using the 6 gallon bucket and air lock that came in the starter kit. This is a stout fermenter and a carboy and blow off tube are in order, don't believe me? You should have seen the mess because I used the bucket and air lock, trust me she will pop the lid and boil over the sides. Two weeks primary and two weeks secondary and off to the keg. As I type this I have an ice cold glass next to me. DEFINITELY brewing this one again, a great drinking beer with a high enough ABV to give a little kick.
