Wyeast Weihenstephan Weizen(TM) Liquid Yeast produces a balance of banana esters and clove phenolics. Sulfur is commonly produced but will dissipate with conditioning. Spicy and estery and very authentic. This classic strain of yeast is perfect for Dunkelweizen, Fruit Beer, German Hefeweizen, Roggenbier (German Rye Beer), Weizen/Weissbier, and Weizenbock.
Because this strain is very powdery you will notice it remains in suspension for an extended amount of time following attenuation. This is true top-cropping yeast and requires fermenter headspace of 33%.
Temperature Range: 64-75F (18-24C)
Alcohol Tolerance: approximately 10% ABV
For best results we always recommend ordering an ice pack with your liquid yeast.
Please Note: When choosing an ice pack option beware that the liquid yeast will not arrive cold even when shipped together. Ice packs and insulated mailing options are designed to keep the yeast colder for longer during shipment, but they will not ensure that your yeast arrives cold. We will not replace liquid yeast that arrives warm. During warmer months we strongly recommend you choose dry yeast.
