Looking for extra yeast for homebrewing beer? Try Safale WB-06 German Wheat Beer Dry Yeast, a strain used for wheat beers.

This is the same yeast packet included in our 5 gallon Hefeweizen Beer Recipe Kit

Safale WB-06 German Wheat Beer Dry Yeast provides fruity & phenolic character - those signature banana & clove esters that wheat beers are known for. 

This WB-06 yeast strain thrives in a fermentation temperature range of 54 - 77°F (ideally 64 - 75ºF). It is an ideal yeast for wheat based beers, including German Weizen beers & Belgian Wit beers. This yeast strain also remains quite suspended during fermentation, which leads to hazy and unfiltered finished beer.

This active dry yeast does not require hydration or a yeast starter to begin fermentation. If you want to reduce lag phase and grow yeast cell count, consider our Yeast Starter Kit. Each 11g packet treats a 5 gallon batch of beer.

Use this yeast strain in your own 5 gallon wheat beer recipes - like a Hefeweizen, Dunkelweizen or Weizenbock!

How To Use Safale WB-06 Yeast When Brewing 5 Gallons Of Beer:
