The OYL-021 Hefeweizen Ale I is a classic German wheat strain. Its has a cloudy, big top cropper characteristic, giving banana and clove.  The esters turn up with increased temperatures, wort density and decreased pitch rate, or stay muted at lower temperatures where clove stands out. Over pitching can lessen the banana. Sulphur conditions out. This is true top cropping yeast and requires fermentor headspace of 33%.

Omega Yeast's metabolically healthy cells produce vigorous fermentation and consistent results for home brewers and probrewers alike.  Each homebrew pack (150ml) is packed with  225b cells.
