  • Description
  • Q and A

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.

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.

Fantastic yeast

I've used this on two American Wheat beers and I've been impressed! It's a fast starter and very aggressive! You need plenty of headspace with this one! I would recommend a blowoff tube as well. I fermented at 63-64 F both brews and they've been smooth and clean with no off flavors. I would highly recommend this one for the American wheat style!
