Safbrew WB-06 is a great dry choice for use in wheat beers. It does produce some of the fruit and spice compounds that are present in most wheat beers. However, many brewers report that these are not as pronounced as in some of the more dominant German wheat strains, and thus this yeast works well in the production of American wheats and wheat beers when only a subtle estery and phenolic profile are desired. Again, these can be manipulated somewhat through temperature control. lt stays suspended and active during fermentation and may require some extra time for clarification. A good wheat yeast to have on hand as a backup to your liquid wheat strains.

I used this yeast in a Roggenbier which I had used Wyeast 3068 Weihenstephan Wheat in. Unfortunately my wyeast stalled at 1.020 for a long time, so I added some rehydration nutrient to the Safebrew, and added it to my fermenter and 1 week later I was on my way to full attenuation. I can't tell the profile from esters and phenols from the safebrew vs wyeast, but it really saved my roggenbier.
