Try it in Holiday spice ales

Review by Sean D. on 2/8/2018

Have used this yeast for the last few years in high gravity, malt forward Brit-style holiday spice ales with very nice results. Works incredibly well when paired with holiday meals of turkey and ham. Make sure to reduce amount of spices in boil as the clove and banana from the yeast will overspice your brew. Think about adding some local honey to dry out finish or some orange peel for citrus nose/tang. And keep fermentation temps low because as previously mentioned, this yeast will blow quickly through the airlock.

Great hefe

Review by Roy S. on 3/13/2008

Pros: This yeast will make you a very classic Bavarian Hefeweizen. Great ester/phenolic balance. It loves to take off, so use that blow off tube.

Cons: You need to manage the primary fermentation temperature to get a good balance.

Excellent for Hefeweizen

Review by Clarke on 1/27/2006

Pros: Just brewed a Hefeweizen with this yeast and tasted it last night. Wow! The brew had a nice spicy nose, slightly musty. Then the incredibly complex flavor of this yeast, combined with the malted wheat was really what I was expecting. Banana esters are lower than anticipated, but you know they're there (could have been my low fermentation temp). Just the right amount of phenols, hints of clove, and attenuation seems to be dead on. I even hit my target FG too. Couldn't have been better. To top it all off, the yeast pack activated in less than 10. I smacked it, and was brewing the next morning. Fermentation started within 8 hours, and did an excellent job at 67 degrees the entire time.

Cons: None. Buy this yeast, you will NOT be disappointed.
