Wyeast Weihenstephan Weizen 3068

Wyeast Weihenstephan Weizen 3068

  • 999


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. Sulfur 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 fermenter headspace of 33%.

Origin:
Flocculation: low
Attenuation: 73-77%
Temperature Range: 64-75° F (18-24° C)
Alcohol Tolerance: approximately 10% ABV

Liquid yeast makes awesome beer! We carry W/Yeast liquid yeast in 175 ml “smack packs”. These are good for minimum 6 months to from the date of manufacturing. It is Highly Recommended to activate and allow the pack to swell prior to pitching. Failure to allow yeast to properly activate will often result in contamination.
