Lallemand Wit Belgian Wit Style Yeast 500g
Lallemand Wit Belgian Wit Style Yeast 500g Wholesale
LalBrew® Wit yeast is a relatively neutral strain which can be used to produce a wide variety of wheat beer styles. Ester and phenol production is lower than for traditional hefeweizen strains such as Munich Classic. LalBrew® Wit provides a baseline profile of banana and spice aromas, but leaves space for the brewer to showcase other spice additions typical of Belgian-style wheat beers.
Traditional styles brewed with this yeast include but are not limited to:
- Belgian Witbier
- American Wheat
- Berliner Weiss
- 15 - 22°C (59 - 72°F)
- Fruity, estery
Classified as a Saccharomyces cerevisiae, a top fermenting yeast.
