probably the best yeast strain I’ve used for wheat beers. my home brew setup is great except I lack a good temp control area for fermentation. I have worked around this by brewer certain beers at different times of the year. in the summer my fermenting space stays a consistent 72-74 where in the winter it is consistently 65. I have brewed the same original recipe German wit style ale in summer and winter and the yeast worked great at 65 and 72. At 65 it fermented slower as expected but finished very dry and crisp with more pretzely flavors with a sourmix finish. In the summer it fermented completely and violently in less than 5 days and was a completely different beer with a nice banana flavor. Both beers are great and are fitting for the season I brew them in. A must try for anybody looking for a good wit, Weiss, or duble/tripple.
