Discover the essence of traditional Bavarian brewing with White Labs WLP300 Hefeweizen Ale Yeast, the perfect strain for crafting classic Hefeweizens with authentic flavors and aromas. This yeast is renowned for its ability to produce the signature characteristics of Hefeweizen beers: a delightful balance of banana esters and clove phenols.

Key Features:

  • Style Specificity: Specially designed for Hefeweizen brews, WLP300 excels in producing the iconic cloudy, unfiltered wheat beers of Germany.
  • Flavor Profile: Imparts a complex flavor palette with prominent notes of banana and clove, alongside subtle hints of vanilla and spice.
  • Fermentation Temperatures: Thrives at higher fermentation temperatures, ideally between 68-72°F (20-22°C), which enhances the development of its characteristic esters and phenols.
  • Attenuation and Flocculation: Exhibits low to medium flocculation and high attenuation, resulting in a beer that is both full in flavor and body, yet finishes crisp and refreshing.

Guidance for Use:

  1. Pitching: Aim for a pitching rate of about 0.75 to 1.25 million cells per mL per degree Plato to achieve optimal fermentation.
  2. Aeration: Oxygenate the wort thoroughly before pitching to ensure a strong, healthy fermentation start.
  3. Temperature Control: Maintain a steady fermentation temperature within the 68-72°F (20-22°C) range to promote the desired balance of banana and clove flavors.
  4. Yeast Management: Due to its low to medium flocculation, consider fining agents or extended cold conditioning to achieve clarity in the final product.

White Labs WLP300 Hefeweizen Ale Yeast is the brewer's choice for producing top-notch Hefeweizen beers with authentic Bavarian taste. Whether you're crafting a traditional Hefeweizen or experimenting with wheat beer styles, WLP300 delivers the complex flavors and aromas that define this beloved beer category.
