I've brewed 5 hefes and 3 or 4 Dunkelweizens with this strain, great sweet banana flavors and aroma, and a nice creamy texture to the maltiness. Less clove, but sweeter than WLP351. My most balanced batch, was using a vial of both yeast strains, it gave a very rich and a great balance between banana and clove, enjoy!

Great German style hefe yeast.
Probably my most favorite German style wheat yeast. Always performs well and ferments quickly. I make a starter which kicks off fermentation quickly as well. I keep the temperature down to avoid too many phenols and the yeast ferments well even down to 62-64 degrees. Gives off nice clove & spicy flavors. Not much banana at these temperatures so you may want to ferment at a slightly higher temp if you want that character. I highly recommend this yeast.

Good Banana
Too many of these Hefeweizen strains seem to be heavy on the clove side. This strain produced an excellent banana character at fermentation temps around 70 degrees. Better than all the other liquid strains available in my opinion.

Great Flavor!!
I brewed it to compare with WB-06.WLP300 has better flavor balance between clove & banana.I love it!!

Great & easy
I used this yeast on a Weizenbier and was simple to use. The finished product tastes great. Keep refrigerated until several hours before use.

Keep coming back to this one
I tried other strains but keep coming back to this one. I ferment between 62 and 65 degrees for the characteristics that are most pleasing to me in a Hefeweizen. I had bad luck with the smack pack brand but White Labs have always given me fast and vigorous starts.

Very quick fermentation
Used this yeast for a Weizenbock which was 1.074 OG. I made a starter with one tube and added another when pitching. Even my starter took off within a few hours and I thought it would blow out the top of a 2 liter starter. I pretty much got the same result in my finished wort. Within a few hours fermentation started and I had to add a blow off tube into a growler & that overflowed as well. Within a week the gravity went down to 1.019. Almost finished now & a sample tasted great with spice and not much banana but I held the temperatures down. The beer is not finished yet but it will be great.

Perfect classice Hefe yeast
If you are looking for a hefe yeast that imparts the strong banana esters and fruitiness, this is your yeast. We used several yeasts before this one, including another liquid yeast from another brand, but none of them brought forth the characteristic we were looking for. We received high remarks on classic nose and flavor in a recent competition... unfortunately the beer was flat, working on our bottling techniques.

I plan to use this with the 5 gal Bavarian Hef Extract Kit... Is this a one-batch vial, or will it do multiple 5 gal batches?
A shopper on Mar 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The vial is designed to be used for a single 5 gal batch. I've found if you don't make a starter, the banana flavors are more pronounced. If you make a starter, the clove flavors are stronger. You can harvest the slurry from a 5 gal batch and used to repitch into other batches.
Can you handle Internatonal delivery, especially to Indonesia?
A shopper on Jun 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We are only able to ship to addresses within the United States. There are forwarding companies out there though, that provide you with a U.S. address and we can ship to that. From there, they will be responsible for the package and any necessary documents required for shipping it to you. An online search should give you some options, if that is something you would like to pursue.
