Belgian Witbier

Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Profile: This versatile witbier yeast strain can be used in a variety of Belgian style ales. This strain produces a complex flavor profile dominated by spicy phenolics with low to moderate ester production. It is a great strain choice when you want a delicate clove profile not to be overshadowed by esters. It will ferment fairly dry with a slightly tart finish that complements the use of oats, malted and unmalted wheat. This strain is a true top cropping yeast requiring full fermentor headspace of 33%.
