White Labs 380 Hefeweizen IV Ale Yeast
This strain produces a balance of phenolics and esters. Nutmeg, clove, and spice are more dominant than the banana and bubble gum aroma. Pitching rate and temperature will dramatically affect the flavor and aroma of this strain. Traditional brewing techniques suggest underpitching to produce more classic characteristics of the style. This strain has low flocculation and minor sulfur production.
WLP380 Hefeweizen IV Ale Yeast is POF+, this strain will contribute phenolic characteristics to finished products.
