Escarpment Labs - Weizen I Yeast

by Escarpment Labs

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.

Attenuation 70-75%
Optimum Fermentation Temp 18-24°C (66.5-75°F)
Alcohol Tolerance Medium-High
