WB-06 Wheat Beer Yeast [Add $4.79]
White Labs WLP300 Hefeweizen Ale Yeast [Add $8.99]




A pale, spicy and fruity wheat-based ale that's light and refreshing. Notes of clove and banana stand out from the wheat ale yeast. Hop character is kept at a minimum to allow the grain, bread and straw flavour of the malt to shine through. A well rounded beer with a dry finish with lots of drinkability.

Excellent Hef May 29, 2015
Reviewer: Terry P from Victoria, BC  
For me, this turned out to be an excellent beer.  OBK substituted the Wyeast liquid yeast as they were out of the White Labs at the time and it turned out great.

This is a very active fermentation so recommend using a hose into a jar rather than just an Airlock as I found the airlock ready to blow off.

I bottled this beer in roughly 19 x 1L bottles and let them carbonate for roughly 2 weeks at room temperature.  It took about 4-5 days in the fridge after that for the CO2 to absorb into the beer without causing gushers.

It's one of the best beers I've made hands down.

Upgrade to the WLP300 October 16, 2014
Reviewer: Dave R from Oakville  
This brews up well, and it's true to style. The wheat creates a lot of protein to deal with, a more advanced mash schedule could be a good idea if you are so inclined.

The dry yeast is not great, might just have been me but it came out as underpitched. Fermentation went fine, but the phenols are just not where they need to be for a Heffe.

Delicious April 26, 2014
Reviewer: Andrew Hinde from Chesterville, ON Canada  
Very standard hefeweizen recipe, but simplicity is the best.  Tastes very much like Hacker-Pschorr Weisse.  Would be great with some orange and cloves.

My first November 23, 2013
Reviewer: Travis Mushanski from Regina, SK Canada  
This was my first all grain batch, and I think it went really well.  In the end, it netted about 4.5 gal in total, but the OG was bang on what the instructions said.  Looks and smells great.  Can't wait to taste it!!
