American Hefeweizen Ale Yeast WLP320 PurePitch Next Generation
The PurePitch® Next Generation is an evolution of White Labs' PurePitch - the most superior and consistent yeast on the market - has been made better with new packaging powered by FlexCell® technology for ease of use and a pitch rate resulting in a foolproof fermentation every time. The new packaging features a modular pouch with a cap and a consistent cell concentration intended to pitch at 7.5 million cells/mL per 5 gallons. The new process has also increased the viability and improved the shelf life of the yeast now lasting 4-6 months. Meaning that now you get more yeast and a foolproof fermentation with out a starter since you are starting out with 2x the pitch rate than before.
White Labs American Hefeweizen Ale Yeast (WLP320) is a specialized yeast strain that ferments much cleaner than other hefeweizen strain counterparts. It will produce a very slight banana and clove note. It has a low flocculation, which will result in beers with characteristic cloudiness known in the hefeweizen style.
WLP320 American Hefeweizen Ale Yeast is POF+ meaning that it will contribute phenolic characteristics to finished products.
We recommend using this yeast strain in American Wheat Ales.
Alcohol Tolerance: Medium (5-10%)
