Bavarian Wheat Blend from Wyeast is a perfectly balanced blend of a neutral ale strain and a fruity, spicy wheat strain. The two influence each other out nicely, the neutral ale yeast providing a balanced base while the wheat yeast produces esters and phenolics reminiscent of classic continental wheat beers. The resulting beers often have a fair fruit-and spice character without being too strong, making this yeast a great choice for making traditional German wheat beers that are subtle and balanced. A decently-flocculating strain that is not as overwhelming as other wheat strains, it is a good standby for those making a foray into German Wheat territory.
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.
