Omega Yeast OYL-021 Hefeweizen Ale
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 e.g, 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.
One of the best Heffs for Banana flavors fermented at 72. Love it!!
Best option for your hefe! The banana notes were incredible!
Worked nicely for Hefeweizen kit. Good active fermentation and carbonation. Good ale taste. Would use again.
Great ingredients and easy to follow schedules. I have brewed many beers and I have never been disappointed with the products.
Made the best flavored Hefeweizen I have made. Easily a future buy and highly recommended. Can't wait to try other strains of yeast.
