Weizen I is a traditional Hefewezein yeast historically originating from Freising in Germany. It is arguably the most widely used hefeweizen yeast in the world.

There is a good balance between banana esters and clove phenolics, driven by pitch-rate, glucose concentration in wort and fermentation temperature. 

JY214 is a very dusty strain that can produce some sulfur notes that will disappear with aging. 

It is great for traditional Weizen beers but also fruit beers and any beer that benefits from the typical character that comes with this strain.

A vigorous exothermic fermenter, it needs proper cooling becuase it will drive down the pH if fermentation overheats.

A perfect substition for White Labs WLP300 Hefeweizen Ale or for WLP380 Hefeweizen IV
