Hefeweizen Ale I

OYL-021

Available in Probrew pitches and Homebrew Packs

Yeast Thumb 8

A classic German wheat strain, it’s a cloudy, big top cropper. Presenting banana and clove, the esters turn up with increased temps, wort density and decreased pitch rate, or stay muted at lower temps where clove stands out. Over-pitching can lessen the banana. Sulfur conditions out. See also Belgian Ale A (OYL-024)for an alternate complexity.
