A top-fermenting wheat beer yeast which imparts banana and clove esters balanced with spiced aromas. This yeast produces a silky mouthfeel and rich body.
Strain Classification: Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Recommended Temperature Range: 64 - 86°F (18 - 30°C)
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 flavors, while deep roast and chocolate flavors 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
