Wyeast Premium Liquid Yeast has been the choice of professional brewers and craft beverage makers since 1986 and they have offered the same quality and diversity of cultures to homebrewers since then with their innovative Smack-Pack Activator System™.

Quantity: 100 billion cells (batch size up to 23 litres)

Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Profile: The classic and most popular German wheat beer strain used worldwide. This yeast strain produces a beautiful and delicate balance of banana esters and clove phenolics. The balance can be manipulated towards ester production through increasing the fermentation temperature, increasing the wort density and decreasing the pitch rate. Over pitching can result in a near complete loss of banana character. Decreasing the ester level will allow a higher clove character to be perceived. Sulphur is commonly produced, but will dissipate with conditioning. This strain is very powdery and will remain in suspension for an extended amount of time following attenuation. This is true top cropping yeast and requires fermentor headspace of 33%.

Flocculation: Low

Attenuation: 73-77

Temp Range: 18-24°C

Max ABV: 10%

Suited Styles: Weissbier, Weizenbock, Dunkel Weissbier, Roggenbier, Sahti, Fruit Beer
