Weizen Ale Yeast

Select an option:

Looking for extra yeast for homebrewing beer? Try our Weizen Ale Yeast, the strain used in our 1 gallon Hefeweizen beer kits.

This pre-measured 2 g packet of wheat ale yeast ferments 1 gallon of beer. This strain provides fruity & phenolic character - specifically, the signature banana, and clove esters that German wheat beers are known for. 

This 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 & unfiltered finished beer. Weizen Ale Yeast is very similar to Safale WB-06.

Our active dry yeasts do not require hydration or a yeast starter before pitching to begin fermentation.

Use this yeast strain in your own 1 gallon wheat beer recipes - like a Hefeweizen, Dunkelweizen or Weizenbock!

HOW-TO use our Weizen Ale Yeast in a 1 gallon beer:

1. Ensure wort is chilled to 75 °F or below.
2. Pitch entire packet & aerate for a full minute to begin fermentation.
