A classic hefeweizen strain from Germany, this yeast produces classic German style hefeweizens! With notes of banana and clove, this yeast produces flavorful hefeweizens time and time again. This strain is noted to lean more toward banana esters than clove phenolics, but this can be manipulated through fermentation temperatures. By lowering fermentation temperature, the banana ester character will be more subdued, allowing the clove phenolics to be more prevalent. Low flocculation means a cloudiness that is characteristic of traditional hefeweizens. This strain has been lauded as one of the best hefeweizen strains out there. Give it a try and see for yourself!

ICE PACK INCLUDED
We include complimentary ice packs with ALL liquid yeast orders (if required), 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 hot summer months or if you are ordering from a warmer climate. Many times during the winter an ice pack is not needed so we make the determination based on current temperatures and the destination!
