Active Dried Brewing Yeast promoting high levels of esters and clove phenolics for enhanced complexity of German-style wheat beer
A classic top-fermenting yeast suited for brewing a range of German Weizens as well as Belgian Witbier. It has a very low flocculation rate and a clean, “yeasty” aroma which makes it ideal for beers that are traditionally served cloudy. This yeast creates beer with a low to completely dry level of sweetness, medium body with a silky mouth feel, and a delicious banana and spice aroma.
Lots of classic banana and clove esters, balanced with clove and cinnamon-like phenolic aromas; these aromas tend to overwhelm any malt or hops character in the beer. Only intense chocolate or roast malt aromas in dark ales will overcome.
Flavor/Mouth Feel Characteristics:
While this strain has only a moderate tendency to attenuate, the final beer will not be sweet. Instead, it will have a creamy, silky mouth feel and full, rich, but medium- not heavy- body. Most caramel and complex malt flavors are stripped away by this strain. Deep roast and chocolate flavors will show through. Slight acidity produced greatly enhances wheat
Higher Alcohol Beers:
In higher alcohol beers, the phenolic character presented by this strain becomes a bit smoky and esters burst forth. Low attenuation rate may result in a sweet beer.
