This is former Yeast Lab W51, the description originally used by Yeast Lab still fits: “This strain produces a classic German-style wheat beer, with medium to high spicy phenolic overtones reminiscent of cloves.” Pitching rate and temperature will dramatically affect the flavour and aroma of this strain. Traditional brewing techniques suggest underpitching to produce more classic characteristics of the style.
The PurePitch® Next Generation pack combines the ease of the vial and the innovation of PurePitch®, offering a pouch with a cap and double the pitch at 7.5 million cells/ mL; a commercially recommended pitching rate allowing you to pitch like the pros. No need for starters!
Price is per package and includes an ice pack for shipping at no additional cost to keep your yeast cool during transit. Refrigerate as soon as you receive your order.
Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 19-21°C
Alcohol Tolerance: Very High (15%+)
