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.

Great yeast
Amazing flavor and good attenuation

Great yeast...
...but use a blowoff tube. If you want (very) active fermentation, and a yeast you can feel/taste in your brew, this is a great choice.

Fantastic Yeast
A wonderfully full flavored yeast, I fermented below the recommended range for the yeast. 63 F, made for a very balanced flavor, whilst keeping the more estery flavors in check. Ordered two more for my weizenbock just now.

Good upgrade to the Bavarian Hefeweizen kit
Chose to upgrade to this yeast for my Bavarian Hefeweizen kit as recommended in many other reviews. 1st time using a smack pack since I am a relatively new home brewer. Was impressed with the results and will be using this strain every time I brew that kit which will probably be often since the results were outstanding and quick.

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.

Good upgrade to the Bavarian Hefeweizen kit
This brewpot is excellent. The bottom is thick, you get no scorch spots, spreads heat evenly. Plus, it looks awesome, and the gallon graduation marks make brew day a breeze. I love it, and am contemplating buying the 15 gallon version so I can move to 10 gallon batches. I'm proud to show my friends my brewpot!

Really heats the place up
First time with this strain. Made a Weizenbock. Active fermentation that really kicked off the heat. Fermented at 64f. Ester profile came out perfect.

Wonderful Weizen Yeast
Great authentic German strain. If you love the weizen from overseas or from the Hofbrauhaus, this is the way to go. Ferment at the low end of the range and enjoy some great clove/banana flavors.
