Wyeast 3944 Belgian Witbier
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.
This versatile witbier yeast strain can be used in a variety of Belgian style ales. This strain produces a complex flavor profile dominated by spicy phenolics with low to moderate ester production. It is a great strain choice when you want a delicate clove profile not to be overshadowed by esters. It will ferment fairly dry with a slightly tart finish that compliments the use of oats, malted and unmalted wheat. This strain is a true top cropping yeast requiring full fermenter headspace of 33%.
Temperature Range: 62-75F, 16-24C
Alcohol Tolerance: 11 to12% ABV
Keep refrigerated. Do not freeze. Activator™ packages will sometimes swell slightly, or moderately during shipping or later while properly stored. This is not an indication of deterioration if the package is less than 6 months old and has been properly handled. This is result of trace amounts of nutrients, still available at the time packaging, causing small amount of culture activity and CO2 production. Some strains are more prone to this than others.
