Must have for hefeweizen
This is one of my favorite yeast strains. But I love hefeweizens. The package came chilled and the yeast pack was fresh and healthy. Started fermenting straight from the pack in 1.062 OG wort within ~8 hours. My hefes seem to turn out more like Franziskaner than Weihenstephaner, but that's probably my temperature control.

I’m happy
Fermented at 65°F for three days, followed up with four days at 72°. Got lots of clove phenols (4VG) and low amounts of banana esters (isoamyl acetate) by design in a Hefeweizen. The beer turned out great!

They both work well at the upper end temps as well as the lower end temp ranges and every loves the heffa they produce , without a doubt
Wyeast 3068 and 3638 are hands down the two best heffa yeast!

Very aggressive yeast!
Pitched a starter of this into a Bavarian Hef - was looking for banana esters though I later found out to underpitch for that - kept in the mid to upper 60's and fermentation was off like a rocket overnight and continued vigorously for several days. Even the starter went bananas (no pun). The whole fermentation chamber smelled like sweet banana bread. The end result was more of a clove/spice flavor. Will definitely use again with some pitch adjustments for desired esters.

Warm yeast DOA
I ordered Wyeast 3068 with some grains and when the package arrived the yeast was warm, I still made a starter only to see nothing happen after 24 hours. NB Laur told me Hi there, we ship all of our liquid yeasts with an ice pack, as long as it is not too cold outside. Cheers! but the problem was it was 85 F all that week in California. I will never order liquid yeast from NB again

Response from Northern Brewer
Thanks for the review. We do include an ice pack with all Yeast orders. We also offer express shipping if you have concerns about the weather in your area. We encourage you to evaluate the viability of all other liquid yeast by making a yeast starter. Do not brew with inactive yeast — we can replace the yeast, but not a batch that fails to ferment properly. Cheers,

Perfect yeast for Bavarian Wheat.
Perfect yeast for Bavarian Wheat. Used in the mid 60s and up in the mid 70s. Both tasted great depending on what you like.
