WLP 400 - Belgian Wit Ale Yeast
WLP400 Belgian Wit Ale Yeast exhibits the trademark low flocculation common to most wheat beer oriented yeast strains. With medium attenuation and alcohol tolerance it delivers a nice, dry finish, that leaves some space for the spices commonly used in Belgian Witbiers.
Besides the obvious applications, WLP400 can also be used for making Belgian Abbey beers, such as Dubbel, Tripel, as well as styles like Biere de Garde, Dark Strong Ale, Saison, Table Beer, and Heffeweizen.
|Description:||If youre a fan of the distinct spicy bite of Belgian Witbiers and want to reproduce the same refreshing flavour found in some of the most famous commercial examples of the style, WLP400 Belgian Wit Ale Yeast is definitely an ingredient you don"t want to miss in your recipe.
Allegedly sourced from the modern classic, Hoegaarden and subsequently Celis White, WLP400 delivers a very complex interplay of ethers and phenols that still makes the beer made with it enjoyable, refreshing, and easy to drink.
Think of allspice, citrus, cloves, some banana, and sulphur to get an idea of the general flavour profile delivered by this strain.
