WLP 300 - Hefeweizen Ale Yeast
The most prominent feature of WLP300 Hefeweizen Ale Yeast is the distinct ether and phenol profile of this strain, defined by notes of banana and cloves. These flavours are an integral part of German Hefeweizen and compliment the light sweetness of wheat malt, creating very enjoyable and refreshing beers.
The general rule is that WLP300 tends to produce more clove flavours at the lower side of its optimal temperature spectrum, while higher fermentation temperatures result in a more pronounced banana character. An indispensable strain for brewing real Hefeweizen beers that is used by commercial brewers in some of the oldest breweries in Germany.
|Description:||For the classic German Hefeweizen experience, WLP300 Hefeweizen Ale Yeast is simply a must. Allegedly sourced from the oldest brewery in the world, Weihenstephan, this strain delivers the authentic flavour and appearance, which made German wheat beers famous across the globe.
With low flocculation, WLP300 tends to produce very cloudy beers, which is the very definition of the style, while also exhibiting medium attenuation and alcohol tolerance, making it suitable not just for ordinary wheat beers but for Weizenbocks as well.
