American Hefeweizen Ale Yeast White Labs
Species : Ale
Fermentation Temp Range (°F) : 65-69
Apparent Attenuation Range (%) : 70-75
Flocculation : Low
Alcohol Tolerance : Medium 5-10%
Pitching/Fermentation : Unlike White Labs 300, this yeast produces a very slight amount of the banana and clove notes. It produces some sulfur, but is otherwise a clean fermenting yeast, which does not flocculate well, producing a cloudy beer.
Notes : This yeast is used to produce the Oregon style American Hefeweizen.
Best Styles : American Hefeweizen
