This popular German strain is used in the production of traditional, authentic hefeweizen. It produces a high level of isoamyl acetate, giving the resulting beer notes of banana. With balanced phenol production, this strain produces notes of clove but remains banana forward. Low flocculation leaves the desired cloudy look, appropriate for the German wheat beer style.
Adding an ice pack for each tube or packet of liquid yeast in your order will reduce the effect of heat on your yeast during transit. Ice packs are an inexpensive insurance policy.
