Feedback and experiences from previous customers.
“FINALLY, AN IMMACULATE CLONE OF A BAVARIAN HEFE”
I've been attempting to clone a Schneider Blond/Erdinger style of hefe for a while and I believe I've finally nailed it with this yeast.
Moderate intensity of banana esters and a refreshing plumminess in the finish. Pitched a single vial for 5G to force the yeast out of their comfort zones and produce more character.
“MAKES A GREAT HEFEWEIZEN ”
Only my third batch ever and went over very well at the brew club meeting. Seemed a bit slow on the start but took off and produced my best so far. Mild hint of banana and a wonderful flavor in the finished beer.
“THE RESULT WAS A VERY EASY-TO-DRINK ALE ... ”
I used this yeast to brew a special beer for my girlfriend's college graduation party - it really delivered. It produced a very slight banana note, little to no clove or sulphur, and a slight haze. The fermentation temperature was about 72 degrees. The result was a very easy-to-drink ale that won over several homebrew critics.
“... PRODUCED EXCELLENT FLAVOR ...”
Fermented at 70-72 degrees for ten days in Dunkleweizen with an o.g. of 1.056. Yeast by products produced excellent flavor for this batch. Banana and clove flavors are very mellow and a crisp tart finish goes well with the high carbonation.
