Technical data sheet – click here

LalBrew® Wit yeast is a relatively neutral strain which can be used to produce a wide variety
of Wheat beer styles. Esters and phenol production is lower than for traditional hefeweizen
strains such as Munich Classic. Wit provides a baseline profile of banana and spice aromas,
but leaves space for the brewer to showcase other spice additions. Traditional styles
brewed with this yeast include but are not limited to Belgian White, American Wheat,
Berliner Weiss, Gose, Hefeweizen, Dunkelweis, and Weizenbock

  • Vigorous fermentation that can be completed in 4 days
  • Medium to High attenuation and Low flocculation
