The American wheat strain produces crisp, tart beers that lack the powerful esters usually found in German and Belgian beers. This strain is known for its powerful fermentation and krausening properties, so a blowoff assembly or larger fermenting vessel is ideal when using this to ferment. A wide temperature range and good attenuation makes this yeast suitable for a number of American and German ales and wheat beers.
Warm Weather Shipping Notice
During the hot summer months we include complimentary ice packs with ALL liquid yeast orders, but cannot guarantee that the ice packs will stay cold during transit, and thus the yeast can potentially be exposed to hot temperatures. We highly recommend ordering dry yeast during the summer months or if you are ordering from a warmer climate.
