Be careful with this one - after 16 hours in my fermenter, it exploded through the airlock. Best to use a blowoff tube or increase your headspace.

I fermented at 62F ambient temp, and got more clove taste than banana (alternatively, I've read if you ferment warmer you'll get more banana than clove).You will not go wrong with this yeast.

Perfect for the job at hand
Used this to ferment a Sahti with a 1.082 OG. Direct pitched and had a full krausen within 24 hours. Gave me a great banana character at 64F.

Good Hefeweizen yeast.
The yeast arrived still cold with the ice pack. The beer fermented well and is in a keg on CO2. I tasted my heffeweiz as I transferred it into the keg...delicious. I can't wait to try it carbonated. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Must have!
If you're going to make a Hefeweizen, this is a must have! It's the only way to get the notes of clove and banana that Hefeweizen's are known for.

No date found anywhere on package. At least it was not swollen and pitched well

This yeast worked great for my Hefeweizen. Order was processed on the same day I ordered and came very quick.

best hefeweizen yeast. period.
there isn't much else to say honestly. from the oldest brewery on the planet, and it just so happens that they make the best traditional wheat on it as well. grab a sixer of Weihenstephaner Hefeweizen...then realize that you can make your own and have it come really really close. 60/40 German wheat and pils malts and off you go

Using it now
The ease of use for the smack pack is too nice compared to White Labs vials. As long as the pack is not too swelled when you get it this is so much better than doing a starter.
