Escarpment Labs - Weizen I Yeast
The quintessential banana bomb yeast.
The classic German Hefeweizen strain, with ample potential to create the characteristic clove and banana flavours. Clove character can be emphasized though a ferulic acid rest in the mash, as well as by using a lower fermentation temperature. Banana ester (isoamyl acetate) character can be emphasized by slightly under pitching, creating a more fermentable wort, and/or using a higher fermentation temperature.
|Optimum Fermentation Temp||18*24°C (66.5-75°F)|
All liquid yeasts are shipped with a 3oz ice pack.
