A top fermenting wheat beer yeast, which imparts banana and clove easters balanced with spiced aromas.
This yeast produces a silky mouthfeel and rich body.
Recomended fermentation temperature: 18-30°C
Flocculation: low- medium
Compaction: Low- medium
It has abundant classic banana esters, balanced with clove like phenolic aromas; these
aromas tend to overwhelm any malt or hop character in the beer.
While this strain has only a moderate tendency to attenuate, the final beer will not be
sweet. Instead, it will have a creamy, silky mouthfeel with a full and rich medium body.
This strain strips away most caramel and complex malt flavours, while deep roast and
chocolate flavours will come through. The slight acidity produced, greatly enhances
wheat malt characteristics. It has a very low flocculation rate that makes it ideal for beers
that are traditionally served cloudy.
HIGHER ALCOHOL BEERS:
In higher alcohol beers, the phenolic character presented by this strain becomes a bit
smokey and esters burst forth. Low attenuation rate may result in a sweet beer.
